Today, I had an assignment 7:45-11:45 in a K classroom. This is my 4th time subbing. When I got there, I knew it was one of those unhappy, grumpty secretaries. she gave me class keys, I asked her what room and that set her off. She said, "Why don't you look at the key". It said the number 10 on it upon close inspection. I asked her where the classroom was and she waved her hand in one direction without looking. Around one hour into class, I got a phone call, the person asked, "Who am I speaking to?". I stated my name and that I was a sub for so and so. The person asked if I was available to sub in the afternoon. I told her that I would have to arrange pickup/babysit for my son in first grade first. She said, "If you can't.. they will pull you out". She emphasized pull you out. At that time, I didn't know what she meant. I was in the midst of working with 28 Kinders. I told her that I am alone in the classroom with the children and she said, when the other teacher comes in to make a call. Ten minutes later, a lady walks in and says, "I thought you were suppose to call the office". I said, "Are you the person that I spoke to because I told her that I will when the other teacher shows up". She said I am here so make your call. I called and asked my mom and she said OK. When I let her know, she just walked out with a smile. Now, what does pull out mean? Did she mean that if I don't accept the assignment, they are going to pull me from the sub list or that they are going to pull me from the classroom and throw me into another one. I don't know. I actually enjoyed the second assignment, they were very nice there. However, I feel really icky because I did not do anything to deserve this treatment. I feel kind of dumb too for being treated and talked to this way.
