I am a recent college graduate who needed to pick up subbing as a means of income. I have no experience in the classroom, although I have done some outdoor education for a couple of years ( I am an environmental management major).
I have not had my first "job" yet and I am SO SCARED!!!!! I have no idea what this experience will be like. I honestly have no idea what to do! They throw you blindly into the job.
I was wondering if any of you have subbed before. If so what tips can you give me. Also, I want to know what the teachers usually leave behind for subs (lesson plans, worksheets,etc.). Are there things that a sub should be weary about? What if no plans were left for the sub, then what?! Would reading time and homework time be appropriate? Or should I have something for them to do!
I could really use the advice and help right now!
