What's it like to be in the reassigned teacher pool? Here's one teacher's experience -- I'm sure there are many others just as interesting. "Having never been a sub and never having tuaght any grade higher than fourth, you can imagine my fear. As it turned out I ended up being a push - in. What totally amazed me was the lack of teaching. I sat there during the literacy block watching children do vocabulary sheets, and comprehension quesitons. My afternoon consisted of students doing work that was written on the chalkboard. I saw some students quietly doing the work, others doing nothing but talking, drawing or just sitting. I am hoping that maybe it was because it was Friday and maybe Friday was some kind of test day or work on your own day - who knows."
