Substitutes in the Classroom – Before and After | Episode #5

Listen On: Apple | Spotify | Etc.

Episode Summary

We all get sick. Substitutes are an inevitable part of the classroom and the education system. They stand in for teachers when the teacher has to be absent.

Preparing for a substitute may involve an emergency substitute tote, a sub binder, lesson plans, setting up the room, and more. This episode will discuss the preparations a teacher should take for a substitute, as well as second and third options.

Brittany and Ellie will also talk about what to do after the substitute has come and gone. We’re talking debriefing with students and co-teachers, reviewing lesson plans and notes, adjusting plans and notes, and talking with the substitute scheduling department if necessary.

Grab a pen and some paper and join us for this informative session on Substitutes in the Classroom.
