Be prepared with the confidence and the knowledge for any classroom situation. As a substitute teacher, you have the powers of a superhero. Who else could teach sixth grade math one day and then transform into a sub for the kindergarten gym instructor the next? What other educator bravely goes into work not knowing what subject or grade he or she will teach that day and still manages a smile?
