    What makes a "good" sub?
    By Betsy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    After several years teaching fulltime I'm now working, by choice, as a substitute while I am back to school earning my Masters. Recently the superintendent of the district was visiting the school site I was at and they (superintendent,principal, and some other district designee) walked through the room, talked to a few kids and then left. The teacher next door (who is a friend of mine) overheard them saying "She's a good sub." What does that mean? I have good classroom management skills when you walk through? I just didn't know what she was basing her opinion on. I've been at that school many times but the prinicpal hasn't ever said anything to me before. So I'm throwing the question out to you, what do you think makes a "good' substitute teacher? Or what evidence do you see when you return to your class that makes you think the substitute was "good?"
