On Going Back To Work-The First Day of School
Yes, substitute teachers do work the first day of school.  I was lucky enough to get an assignment working with a wonderful teacher friend of mine.  I always enjoy working with her.  She is a very gifted teacher and counselor who works with special needs children.  I love working with all types of special needs children, and I love substitute teaching.  My mother had a stroke last year and she lives with us now.  Being a sub means I can meet all my family's needs and still be able to get out and work.  Subs don't make much money, but the rewards from working with the children are far greater compensation.

A Teachers Prayer
Lord, let me be just what they need.
If they need someone to trust, let me be trustworthy.
If they need sympathy, let me sympathize.
If they need love, (and they do need love), let me love, in full measure.
Let me not anger easily, Lord but let me be just.
Permit my justice to be tempered in your mercy.
When I stand before them, Lord, let me look strong and good and honest and loving.
And let me be as strong and good and honest and loving as I look to them.
Help me to counsel the anxious, crack the covering of the shy, temper the
rambunctious with a gentle attitude.
Permit me to teach only the truth.
Help me to inspire them so that learning will not cease at the classroom door.
Let the lessons they learn make their lives fruitful and happy.
And, Lord, let me bring them to You.
Teach them through me to love You.
Finally, permit me to learn the lessons they teach.
