We had four teachers out today…

on a staff of 20ish.  One because a family member is seriously ill, another because he got hit by a car this morning (he did more damage to the car than it did to him, but still, he had to go to the hospital to get a few things straightened out), and two for sickness.  That’s a lot of classes to be covered.

In other news, I spotted something I’ve never seen before that I can remember in 8 years in NYC, a truly rare beast: a substitute teacher.  Mind you, this sub had showed up at our school mistakenly and was really on his way to a similarly-named high school, but still!  Get out your binoculars, folks, you won’t see this one every day!  Needless to say, my principal gave him her card.

  1. Funny! Well, at least about the sub.

  2. heh. funny.

    i think we actually have a couple substitute teachers at our school, but with a faculty numbering near 100, there are always still coverages for the rest of us. but at least the burden is eased somewhat.
