Once upon a time in Texas, there was a girl with an appetite and a dream...



I've entered what appears to be Hell, and upon its foreboding office door in pubescing script are the words "substitute teach in your local high school!" I feel that I must have conducted cruel scientific experiments on innocent third-world children in my past life, because I seem to be paying off some wicked karma...

...nasty 9th grade karma that cusses like a seasoned sailor who's been ripped off by a one-legged hooker.

Oh my goodness. I am so, so, so, so very sorry. Wow. I wish I could offer some words of wisdom, but images of my own high school keep flashing through my head, and I'm scared. Very scared. Good luck.

Good luck with substitute teaching. It sounds like a horrible job to me. (and underpaid)

Oy, I feel you, grrl. I was a "long-term substitute" drama teacher for a middle school once upon a time...came into the classroom after these kids had had like 15 other "long-term subs" who bailed out. Quite the experience...buona fortuna and just remember, *it's temporary*!

I served a stint as substitute teacher in Orangefield High, Middle and Elemetnary Schools once while visiting my parents. I have to say, they were a well-mannered group of kids. I was told that NOT calling me "ma'am" was a punishable offense.
