the teacher is out tomorrow

I'm attending part one of a seven-part class tomorrow (that I didn't ask to attend).

All the live long day.

This is the first time all year my kiddos have had a sub. I gotta say, I'm a little worried. Even though my class is a really well-behaved class, I still worry. They sometimes forget to use their good manners when I'm not around. Sometimes some boys throw food in the cafeteria. One guy has been written up three times for throwing food. Three? Really? You didn't learn a lesson from times one and two? He must have needed some more quality lunch detention time in the front office.

Anyway, I stayed extra late tonight getting everything lined up for my sub. Why does that always take so, so long? Hopefully, I left enough work and explicit enough instructions. There might be a fine line between being detailed enough and insulting. If worse comes to worse, there's always silent reading.

The upside to this class? Seven sessions means seven times I get to eat lunch out with my friend who is taking the class at the same time. Awesome.

Also, 4th grade teachers have morning duty on Tuesdays. That makes seven times I get to miss duty. Doubly awesome.
