On Being a Substitute

Every so often I realize how glad I am to be a substitute teacher. Last night my reason for being happy was that I could say "no". I don't have to work. If I've got something else I need (or really want) to go do, I can. If I want to work more (and the school needs me) then I can. I really love the flexibility of my job. There are no guaranteed work days, but that's ok. I'm still home with my kids, have time to do what I need to do and earn that last bit of money when I want.
