We moved over the summer, and I still don't have a steady job. I have been doing substitute teaching and for the most part it has been going well. The hard part for me is not knowing anyone and having a bunch of names dumped on me in a short period of time. On Tuesday, I was subbing in the first grade room for the first time. The majority of the day went well. Then we needed to line up to go out to the buses. The office had given me 4 changes to the going home schedule, and the kids were standing in line and being really loud. I kid you not, I hit some sort of a wall and could not think straight. It's like I forgot everything I had ever learned. I kind of forced myself to figure it out. Then we went out to the bus ramp, and it was cold and raining. After all the kids were on the buses, I told the other teachers that if someone got on the wrong bus, it was probably my fault. They reminded me that the drivers all know who goes where. I realize that the teacher in the preschool room has a much better system for lining the kids up in the afternoon. With only 5 buses, they are always parked in the same order. She walks her line out and the kids in the front of the line all get onto the first bus. When they reach the second bus, the beginning of the line are the kids to get on that bus. And so on. The first grade teacher didn't leave me with a cheat sheet for the line. My line was all backwards and the first graders got mixed up with the other kids getting on the buses. I saw the preschool teacher today and she gave me her bus order list to use in the future. I think I can do better the next time, but man that was scary and embarrassing.
