Last week we had a sub on Thursday so that I could Dibel the kids. Yesterday, I’m in my room before school, and in walks a sub. “Hi, I’m your sub.”
I said, “Sorry, I don’t have a sub.”
“I was assigned, I have your name, the office gave me your keys….”
Hummmm. “I’ll be right back.”
I went down to the office, “Sure, You have a sub, you must have called in for her. You have a meeting today.”
“School Improvement Plan meeting, you ARE grade level co-chair, aren’t you?”
“Yes, but I didn’t know about a meeting and I didn’t call for a sub.”
“Well you do, and you have.”
“Great, I haven’t prepared for a sub.”
Principal, “Your plans need to be good enough for a sub.”
“They ARE, but it is NICE for a sub, to write out a few things, like class routines, WHERE the teacher guides are in the room, WHERE the specials are in the building, the FIRE DRILL we are supposed to have a retake on because we failed the last one…….”
It was a GREAT day.
See, they forget that for the first THREE weeks of school, track one wasn’t HERE.
“You mean I forgot to tell you about the meeting?”
