The first day of the new school year (2007-2008) started yesterday.
It has been my experience, all three years of it, that the first week of school isn’t very busy for subs. In fact, I don’t think I every subbed during the first week since I started subbing.
This year is different.
I already have subbing assignments for the rest of the week in the same class. The 5th grade teacher’s wife is delivering their baby boy today and paternity leave means the kids get a sub for the duration.
The kids were pretty good. No major dust ups. And I already knew more than half the class as 4th graders.
We’ll see if I have the same opinion by Friday afternoon
P.S. I'm also celebrating the arrival of this blog’s first ever Google advertising income check for $102.70!!! What do you know? Advertising DOES pay.
