I had a sub last week from Wednesday to Friday due to some health issues (i'm fine) but i'm not sure my classroom is. i came back yesterday and couldn't find the kids work (i left packets for them to do!), my room was a diaster, the stage in my room was a diaster, and my desk is usually a disaster but it was worse. my students told me the sub had them read for 3 days straight. well, i came to school wed. to make sure they had work to do , i met with the sub to explain the work that needed to be done, and two of my classes are 90 minutes long so seriously you read for 3 days! State testing starts next week so i'm a little stressed, angry, and irritated. I tried to go back to work on Wednesday but wasn't allowed due to my back and the doctor telling me no work until Monday but I still feel guilty about how my kids may or may not due on the big test next week. (i'll post more on that later) I am so frustated right now that i can't even spell or type correctly (so sorry for the mispelling) plus I'm trying to type this without my glasses on which is always entertaining. before i head off to school i need to tell you the best part about this sub, he apparently kept trying to fall asleep in my class. really who can do that while there are a bunch of middle schoolers in the room? i know my kids and even when they are quiet they aren't that quiet.
