I'm sure I'm not the only one...
Anyone else seriously lacking in the substitute department? We have 1 sub for 4 schools
and she is wonderful she is available 99% of the time but I feel like we need something more permanent. I just hate that I feel like I have to drag myself in to work if I'm really sick or have an emergency because of the students at my school that require my care. This is the ONLY thing that stresses me out.
Today I had to be THAT parent who sent my not so well child to school and told him to please TRY to make it through the day because I have no coverage (I called the sub nurse to see if she could come in for me and she already picked up time at a facility she volunteers at). I feel awful knowing my kid is at school not feeling the best because I dont have coverage (and it shouldn't be my problem but I also care about the kids in my school and could not leave the number of diabetics we have with out a qualified person caring for them--the way I look at it my son will not die from his bellyache/nausea but the lack of care for my diabetic students is of course life threatening).
Just curious if any of you have to worry about this? I have a detailed sub plan typed out just in case of a serious emergency that I absolutely cannot come in and they have no substitute
