Sometimes I just want to scream at the stupidity of others. I was so frustrated today. The special education teacher called off today. Instead of finding a substitute I had to deal with things. A third of my class gets pulled for math because of their IEPs. Because there was no substitute for math, I had to scramble to tind activities for the additional students. My principal tells me that this could be avoided if people don't call in sick. Thanks. That was helpful! You don't feel the stress of an increase of 1/3 your class size, no prep time to create work, and a constant need to give attention away from your planned lesson.
Thanks for allowing me to whine a bit. I needed to get that off my chest.
