The place was huge. After the secretary took me to my classroom, I was worried that I would never find my way back to the office. I also had to take the kids down to the library for my first class. Since I had no idea where that was, and I didn't want to show weakness, I just said, "alright guys, let's head to the library." Then followed them. By the end of the class period, I was concerned that I might not be able to find my way back to the classroom.
During my first class, while I was in the middle of taking attendance, a student yelled out, "do you believe in Bigfoot?"
Later in the same class I was treated to, "if you could be any animal, what would you be?"
Lastly, for all you "real" teachers out there, please heed these words of wisdom from a friend of mine subbing in Alaska:
Worst thing a teacher can do to a sub? Only provide thirty minutes of work for an hour and twenty minute class.
