Disappoing Substite Teaching Experience

Reviewed on

Reading 2009 former student comments,  I'm inclined to agree for the 2 years  I was assigned as substitute teacher.   I was looked at a little askew because  I attempted to discipline students and ended up being the  "bad guy, " though I'm female.  Even the assistant principal played with children causing problems for me in the classroom when   I was trying to teach and follow lesson plans.  Substitute teachers are given a hard time generally and many are accused of doing little.  I am the opposite of that because 1)  I was taught and have a strong work ethic, 2) I had great educational training growing up in a household and family with fantastic educators from "old school." I developed a good reputation academically while substituting. Considered In some circles as  "too harsh " more suited for middle or high school.  However,  I chose elementary to show black children that we can do more in the Schools besides janitorial And cafeteria. In fact, as example,   one child in another school ask me how  I got that kind Of job, and Other children Asked me to be their grandmother, wanted To go home with me, some were tethered to my every word and/or tethered to me.  So very, very sad. I'm so happy to have made a positive impact on all the children.  I gave all the children the benefit of my world knowledge and experience of the real world and the working world having served in it on the corporate level in major market media of  Washington DC and  New  York. God bless our children.  Hope no more children are allowed to sleep all during class everyday, and the children are not allowed anymore to do nothing in all classes all day long, and to talk back incessantly to teachers. I'm proud to have been a working substitute teacher  in the    Gaston  County  Schools.

I think Forest Heights is a pleasant school. Although some of the teachers are way too nice to the students and don't discipline them. Thnere is a 5th grade teacher who lets her students take control of her. Over all it is a good school. I am going to miss it next year because I am moving on to middle school !
