Can you teach my class?

So I am writing my blog a little later than usual this week. I could blame the holiday, Memorial Day, but mostly I have been in panic mode trying to get ready for a conference in Providence, Rhode Island. It seemed like a daunting task to find the perfect substitute teacher and rearrange all of my engagements.

I wanted to make sure that my students were left in good hands. I have never had to use a substitute teacher before, so it is all new to me. I mean: What should my replacement do? What should the substitute know about my students?

I knew my substitute teacher didn’t need to be my twin. She could have her own style. I just wanted to make sure she could engage my students. Well, I found a teacher, Lael, to teach my class. I gave her the basic materials, but she didn’t want a lesson plan. She is going to do whatever she wants. (And I’m ok with that.) It will be interesting to come back next week and hear about what happened. I know my students won’t behave poorly like some kids do with a substitute teacher. But more than behaving, I hope they enjoy her teaching style and her activities. The truth is, I don’t know what to expect. I am willing to bet, though, that everything turns out perfect.
