A bit irreverent yet, kind and truthful, this book is for substitutes, teachers, and administrators. It describes the work-life of an experienced substitute teacher through the lenses of ""best practices."" It begins with the need for education: Axiom (1) ""Teaching is a prerequisite for human evolution"" to Axiom (11) ""Do not take anything personally"", even when the students say you are ""the best sub they ever had."" For grades K-12, this book helps with classroom management techniques to keeping track of multiple assignments. All you need is a tolerance for ambiguity (everyday is different), a healthy lunch, and perhaps ear plugs for rainy day recesses.

Author: Bill Buxton (MA, MBA, TESOL) has been a ""mostly friendly"" substitute for about five years for grades four through twelve in various socioeconomic districts. He believes the primary goal of a substitute teacher is to support the professional teacher by following the sub plans, with some discretion, of course.
