Read full description of the books High School Substitute Teacher's Guide: YOU CAN DO THIS:"You're a high school substitute? Are you crazy? We were so mean to them!" This is a common reaction when I tell people what I do, but I love substitute teaching at the high school level.
I love being a high school substitute because I get to waltz in there and present a lesson that someone else planned and prepared. I love hanging out with teens all day. I love that I get the fun part of helping them with their work, and then I get to go home and someone else grades their papers! Being a substitute teacher is like being a grandparent: I spoil the kids all day and then give them back to their regular teacher!
I started substitute teaching in 1989, fresh out of college. I was looking for a way to support myself through graduate school. A friend told me, "You have a bachelor's degree, so you can be a substitute teacher."
This book is one of only a few written specifically for high school substitute teachers, rather than elementary substitutes. In writing it, I explain not only how to get a high school substitute teaching job, but also how to do the job so well that it will be rewarding in and of itself.
If you know any college graduates who are unemployed, tell them about this book. It might help them support themselves in the meantime, while they seek employment in their fields. Being an excellent substitute can also open the door to a regular full-time teaching position.
Up until the advent of the Internet, most books for substitute teachers consisted largely of worksheets the substitute could photocopy and hand out to students. Today, teachers can instantly find and project one of a million free Internet worksheets. Heck, 99% of today's high school students have phones capable of finding these worksheets.
You won't find worksheets in this book. High school students are too smart to do a substitute's ungraded busy work anyway. Today's high school students crave human interaction. I've seen them get more excited about a classroom discussion than about watching a movie. Times have changed, and I have remained a successful high school substitute teacher by embracing the changing times. Give my book a read and let me show you how to be a good high school substitute teacher who enjoys the job.
