    I worked at Freeport Union Free School District for more than 3 years

    Pros

    After substitute teaching consistently for one out of the 5 Schools in the district, I didn’t have worry about missing the 5am phone calls if work was available. I got a schedule in advance most of the time. Most teachers and support staff were very welcoming. Substitute teachers in Freeport Public School District were paid $120 per day

    Cons

    After 3 years of working hard and doing everything expected plus more and being told I would be given the opportunity to be the permanent sub when a pair ion opened, it was disappointing to see friends of teachers etc. get hired before me.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the principal, vice principal and support staff. I got along well with most of the teachers. Towards the end of the last year I worked there, I was being placed in a dual language classroom where the teacher barely left written lesson plans. There was a TA assigned to the classroom. As a teacher (substitute teacher or every day teacher, we are no supposed to let the TA teach the class. The TA is there for... support. This class was to be taught in Spanish. I didn’t speak Spanish, but I did the best I could. I was reprimanded the next day by the teacher of the classroom for not letting the TA teach the class and accused me of lying about lesson plans not being left. I never had a problem for the first two years. After that incident, things were not the same and it was apparent I never was going to be offered a permanent position.
