I have been a substitute teacher for the last three years. I am currently subbing grades K-6 in an Ohio school. Previously, I have taught preschool, as well as tutoring students grades 1-5.
Being a substitute teacher, I am often told to follow the lesson plans, which I stick to almost every day. Some days, I am allowed to be more creative than others and work with students on items of my choice. When teaching, I tend to be more relaxed, but also stern if needed. I modify my teaching style for different lessons, depending on the needs of the students that I am working with.

If you have ever been a substitute teacher, then you know that you are mainly supposed to follow the lesson plans provided to you. Sometimes, if the teacher knows you, they will be more lenient and allow you to have some creativity of your own. Then there are other times when maybe the teacher has called off at the last minute and if there is even ANY lesson plan laid out, it is all helter skelter. That's where I come in. It is my hope that the products I create will help other substitute teacher like myself who find themselves stuck in these situations. I also create products for elementary teachers to use in their classrooms.
