By Barbara Pressman

When I sub, I try to follow the lesson plans as closely as possible. I want to be thorough, and maybe that’s why I never finish the lessons in the allotted time. I feel like I move too slowly. How can I judge my pacing to finish on time, and still cover all the material?

By Barbara Pressman

At the end of the day, I went to see the teacher in that class to introduce my self and get pertinent information about the class.

You Want Me to Do What?

By Cynthia K. DeLozier

Impending budget cuts and imbalanced enrollments many times impose the placement of multi-grade classes upon a school, the teachers, and the students.
