Just figured I'd pass along my experiences as a sub.
I do want to reiterate that if you are in a decent district/setting, I am quite sure everything will be great. I had no problems in the schools that had things under control.
Hey you didn't hijack anything, I appreciate the responses! I'm actually subbing at a district that's top notch locally. Year in and year out it's ranked as one of the best districts in the area, if not the best. One of the high school's is also my alma mater, so in that regard things should go smoothly.
But your point on some inner-city schools is not missed at all. From k-8th grade I was in the inner city school district, and all hell broke loose on a daily basis. In the 9th grade I moved to a county school (the district I'll be subbing for) and the organization and discipline is remarkable.
And I give you credit. If things ever get as bad for me as they did for you, I don't think I could tolerate that for very long at all.
