    I have been working at Milford Public Schools part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Substitute teaching allows me to work part-time during the hours that my child is in school so I can maintain the same schedule she has while searching for a full-time job.

    Cons

    The substitute plans can be very challenging as teachers today cover a lot of ground during the seven hour school day. It would be optimal to have a chance to view the subs plans the day before if the absence is planned. Also, if you need to rely on a five day a week job, substitute teaching is not something you should rely on, the work ebbs and flows. You have to be flexible.

    I worked at Milford Public Schools part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You build relationships with students for time you are working. Most teachers and administration are helpful. Most teachers leave class rooster, class information and lesson plans for the day(s). Develop relationships with staff of schools you frequently substitute teaching for.

    Cons

    Students are what makes substitute teaching worthwhile and make the day joyful amidst the stress. Coming in as a short term employee you can be treated unfairly by teachers and other staff. Unfortunately, many employees have a negative view of substitute teachers as being lazy, replacement teachers who don't know what they are doing; but the majority of time when you are substitute teaching you are multitasking, following lesson plans, teaching, helping students, keeping track of the day and reporting back to the teacher as to the status of classwork/behavior. There is not room for promotion or employee growth, substitute teachers get paid the same rate continuously and their are not raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have school map, room numbers and teachers names documented for substitute teachers. It is helpful to know teacher's information for student's overall safety and our own sake for time working at the school.
