Step in with confidence!

Are you feeling that you have tried everything and the students still don't respond?

You’ve probably tried to do a few (or all) of the following:

  • Being nice or stern
  • Yelling or giving the silent treatment
  • Not knowing when to send a student to the office and when to handle the situation yourself.
  • You have tried copying what others do, but you are more confused than before.
  • You worry that teachers won't see you as a good sub.

Most importantly, after everything you’ve tried, you’ve gotten little or no results.

No shame! I’ve been there, and I’m the first to admit that there is definitely a struggle managing a classroom that is not yours. That struggle is real.

But guess what? It’s not your fault.

It is likely that you have never been really trained how to manage a classroom. It takes trained teachers a long time, years in fact, to figure this stuff out.

The problem is not you it’s the lack of training that you have received.

Substitute teaching doesn't have to be a mystery. This course will give you the skills to slay your day.
