As a substitute you never really know what you are getting yourself into.
I have shown up at a school expecting to teach in a classroom only to realize that I was the phys-ed teacher.
I have shown up at a school only to find out the teacher doesn't teach there anymore and I should go to the school that he currently teaches at. THEN, when I got to that school I found out that yes he taught science like it said online but he also taught a couple of sections of phys-ed (good thing I was wearing a skirt this day).
I have shown up to a school and found out I had recess duty... and decided to wear a dress... in the middle of winter.
I have been a divisions go to music sub. But not only was I their music sub but I was their go to French music sub. We played a lot of games and watched a lot of movies because I am not fluent in French nor music.
I have "taught" violin class... and no I do not play violin.
Have you ever found yourself in a surprise teaching situation that you weren't expecting?
Come back next week to read Part 3 "Then there are the students..."
