SUB 101 Substitute Teacher 101
Tamara Schiermeister- Wyoming, ”I have enjoyed this class very much. It has given me some great ideas about classroom management. I am excited to use some of the strategies that I have learned. It’s a great class for someone just starting out as a substitute teacher. I look forward to your next course. Thank you for all of your websites that I can use. Thanks again!”
Rhonda Duke from Florida, "This course is very informative and is extremely helpful. It covers topics and discussions that a potential Substitute might not even consider. I thoroughly enjoyed the course.”
Janel Korhonen-Goff from Wyoming, "I enjoyed taking the Substitute Teacher 101 class. A very good class for someone who is just starting out as a substitute. I was reminded of why I chose this career, the ups and downs, and other things that I need to use and remember more often."
Julianna Harris, "This course was very helpful. I just got hired to become a substitute and this was exactly what I needed to feel more confident. This will help you from the very start up to in the classroom. It helps you with classroom management, building positive relationships with the students, and so much more. This gave me more information then I was able to find by just searching the internet. Thank you for making this available for us!"
Bernie Stanley from Wyoming, "The power points and lectures described situations from a classroom that a substitute teacher might expect to see on a daily basis. This was done in a way that was understandable with realistic examples and doable remedies and methods. I plan on taking a copy of the workbook with me to classes if I am hired as a substitute teacher. Thank you Lori for an accessible and informative workshop."
Judy Wiles, "I really enjoyed this class and I feel like the things I learned will help me to be a more effective substitute teacher. My favorite parts of the class were lesson #4, Tips, Tools and Strategies and #5, Behavior Management. I liked the attention signals and I'm going to try to implement them when I sub this week in the elementary school. I also enjoyed the time fillers and I will take my little sticky notes to remind me in case there is a need to use one of them. I believe that using these attention signals and time fillers will help with classroom management and decrease the behavioral issues. In the Behavior Management lesson I watched quite a few videos. This is the area that I feel the weakest in and it was good to see concrete ways to deal with behavior issues and hear realistic consequences that fit the behavior. I've already used some of the ideas in my substitute teaching. One example of this is identify the behavior and give two choices. I felt like this really helped me when I had a student who didn't want to participate and let me pay attention to the rest of the class. I feel my confident that I can do a better job and become a substitute that teachers want to have in their classroom. Thank you, Lori, for a great class!"
