Yesterday I subbed, I really like subbing at the 9th/10th grade levels-these young adults are starting to mature and they are pretty respectful.
I arrive at 11am to get my keys,badge and folder with map and teachers schedule-there are 6 periods to a school day with a planning period and 30 min lunch-imagine my surprise when I look at the teachers schedule to find he had 4th hour plan-YAY me...4th hr plan is the most sought after planning period-well okay maybe I am the only sub that scans all the teachers planning periods but this is why 4th hr plan is so great...
You have from 11-12:40 off-that means your 30 min lunch is now LONGER and you can leave and come home and put a roast in the crock pot or go grocery shopping or go to a very short movie...you get the idea, right? So I only had to sub for 2 classes yesterday-talk about easy...
I subbed for science and all the science teachers are grouped on the same block/hall. Why am I telling you this? Because this is the smart hall as opposed to the weight lifting/aerobics hall...how do I know I was in the smart area of town? The restrooms...
I was given a key to the faculty bathroom-but I couldn't find it and I couldn't hold it so I walk into the the restroom and see this
I stop, gasp and back out quickly-THANK GOODNESS no one was in there-I look above the door for the typical 'Boys In' sign, it's not there-PHEW I AM NOT AN IDIOT-so I walk around the corner trying to find the 'Girls In' sign no luck.
As I am standing there legs crossed trying not to wet my pants I see it-REMEMBER I am in the smart hall
On the wall beside the restrooms in really BIG letters I see this...
Okay so maybe I am an IDIOT...
So I am wondering if the math hall has an equation on the wall directing unsuspecting subs to do a math problem to figure out which door is which
What about the Spanish, German and French hall-I didn't take note of the restrooms the day I subbed for Spanish because the faculty RR was right across from my room.
I bet the computer hall has restroom signs like this
The FFA Hall
The athletic hall
And lastly for those
like me who NEED to be sure which door they are walking through
