Teaching is a skill not everyone has.

Elementary, Middle School, High School
After considering the possibility for a number of years, I took the
and got my
Substitute Teaching permit
in the Fall of 2016.
I am currently registered in three school districts, the city I live in and two contiguous cities, with a combined total of two dozen possible schools.
So far, I've subbed for 2nd - 8th grades. I enjoy the "teach many subjects"
aspect of elementary schools as much as the "teach the same thing several
times" opportunities provided by middle school classes.
I have always loved Language Arts and Science,
so I expected to be particularly interested in those subjects going in.
One thing I had not expected, however, was to discover how much I actually
enjoy Math, at least elementary school through middle school Math. I have
also discovered that I'm good at math and I enjoy teaching it.
I'm not signing up to sub for Special Educatiion, PE, shop, or music
teachers and I'm unlikely to accept assignments to sub for social studies
above 7th grade.
I'm also not looking for assignments with kindergarten or first grade classes,
although I may sub briefly for first grade in a "roving" capacity.
