It has a whole new meaning for me this year. You see, I've signed up to be a substitute
I've missed being a teacher!
I have taught children's classes in church since I was a teenager, starting with a Beginners' Sunday School class. I've also taught classes for Missionettes, Rainbows and helped with Royal Rangers. I've shared the job of co-youth director with my hubby at two different churches. I've played piano for children's choirs. I was a volunteer 4-H Club leader for eight years. I homeschooled my own children for sixteen years. And I currently teach Children's Church.
I love kids!
Who knows how long it will be before I get called into the classroom? But, while I wait for that first phone call, I'll be trying to get my ducks in a row.
I want to have my morning routines down to just minutes in case I get a last-minute phone call from the school (which just happens to be at the end of my country lane).
I hope to get my hair trimmed, so I can wash, dry, and run.
I'm putting together a very simple wardrobe of clothes that mix and match.
I've written a list of easy-to-fix meals and am off to the grocery store for the fixin's this morning.
I would love advice/ideas from any of you that are/were teachers or substitutes!
