At basically the last possible moment, I get offered a long-term sub position.

I start tomorrow.  I’ll be there until the end of their school year (June 6th-ish).  I sub at the school regularly, so it shouldn’t be a big deal. Grades 7, 8, and 9.  The kids know I don’t take any crap.

It’s in social studies, so that’s great.  They use the Charlotte Mason educational theory, and I think there are some great ideas in that philosophy.  I just don’t know how I’m going to not give them tests.  It just sounds weird. I need a solid, tangible way to check for understanding and t just doesn’t have that.

Whatever they want; it pays the bills.

Wish me luck?
