    No, you're not a dummy

    You shouldn't feel like a dummy. I am a full-time teacher now, but I subbed beforehand. There were a number of times when I entered a classroom and felt as if I couldn't find certain things. If the staff members are decent people at all, they should attempt to help you, not make you feel stupid because you don't know the regular classroom teacher's room.

    Having been a substitute myself, I always try to put everything where it can be found. I also try to leave clear explanations, since that was not always the case for me when I subbed.

    If you sub for this teacher again, it will be a lot easier for you. There was one fourth grade teacher I regularly subbed for, and I could find his stuff with my eyes closed!
