Elementary Substitute Teacher Questions

Do you have Elementary Substitute Teacher questions?

I think we all have questions when it comes to subbing especially when we are first starting out!

"How do I know the procedures and rules to follow?"

"What if a subbing job is unsuccessful? What do I do?"

"How do you let the classroom teacher know how the day went?"

"Does subbing help you get in line for a full-time teaching position?"

"What if there are classrooms I'd prefer to work in more often? What do I do?"

You can ask any questions about being a Substitute Teacher on this page. The form is below - and below that are all of the previous questions and answers shared.

If you are looking for another topic, please visit the question and answer page for tons of other education related topics including specific grades, special education and homeschooling.

Hopefully you will get them answered by other visitors to this site as well as myself. You are free to post as many questions as you like.

To give you a better chance of getting your question answered, please respond to the questions of other posters as well.

Please try to answer at least two questions for each question you post. It's all about helping one another and making our job easier!

Questions that are longer, and more detailed, seem to get better responses and benefit you more. So, when writing your question try to be as specific as possible - even adding back story - to get a through response.
