You have unknowns and questions. You have been a student in numerous classrooms over the years with lots and lots of substitutes. Statistics say you have spent at least one full year of your schooling since kindergarten with a substitute teacher at the head of your classroom.
It is no secret to you that being a substitute teacher in a third-grade class is far different than middle school math. In your mind, you are probably right now thinking about all of the things you may have put former substitutes through as you progressed through school. As a younger student, it was a novelty having someone other than your regular teacher show up for you. In the older grades it may have become a day of testing your abilities to ‘stump the sub’, or worse.
That’s great news! You have a fresh perspective of what students will try when you enter the classroom. This course is going to give you the skills, strategies, tips, tricks, and tools you need to turn those antics into opportunities for learning.
By taking this course you are already choosing to make a difference for future generations of students!
