    Bad sub days

    Eric,

    First of all, I want to say give yourself a pat on the back for subbing for an inner-city middle school! There are not many subs that would (or could) substitute for inner-city schools. I guess that my advice would be similar to Lurker's. I would try talking to other subs and teachers to see what works for them when they work with these students. I would also see if you could get someone to back you up. I mean, if students act out, is there something that you could do or someone that you could call (maybe see what the people in the office say or the principal). If you set something up, follow though with it right away.

    Finally, I have to agree with another person who posted a response. If you have too many days like this one, then maybe you should reconsider substituting for that school (or school district).

    Good luck,
    Christina
