What It Takes

Teaching is hard, of course, but guest or substitute teaching is in a class by itself. Working successfully in this field not only requires a love of children, but one also needs a thick skin and quick-thinking skills to navigate  an ever-changing variety of classrooms, grades, lesson plans, the kids, other teachers, administrators, and school food.

Like a well-trained athlete, I’ve learned to field all of the above in order to make two things: a day’s pay, and a difference in at least one young life.
