I’ve told teachers this before and I’ll say it again… I LOVE SUB PLANS.
This statement is obviously contrary to what most teachers say. Teachers always talk about how much they hate sub plans… how hard they are, etc…
Look, I know that sub plans have a bad reputation. But I love them.
Because here’s a little truth bomb for you…. emergency sub plans are what give teachers FREEDOM.
Freedom to take a sick day off work…
…at a moment’s notice if you or your child are sick… If you have kids, you know, kids get sick all the time! On those days, you need to focus on your kids, and not be worried about your classroom.
No need to wrestle with yourself about whether you feel good enough to “tough it out.
Or weigh the question “How sick do I feel?” vs. “Do I want to write sub plans?”
When your sub plans are all prepared beforehand, it makes this decision easier for you and makes your day less stressful.
Freedom to take a mental health day…
…when everything is “too much” without having to even think about planning a thing.
Teaching is a tough job. From time to time, we all need a break. Without sub plans prepared, taking a day off can seem like adding to your plate, rather than taking away from it.
In case no one else has told you, YOU CAN TAKE A MENTAL HEALTH DAY to relax and recharge when you need it.
Freedom to take a day off for a vacation or special event
Sure, you’ll still worry about finding a rental car for less than $1000 to travel in 2021… but you WON’T have to worry about planning for your class.
In one of my first years teaching, I was stressing about taking a couple of days off for a cousin’s wedding. Would it be worth it? What plans would I leave? Will my kids get behind? All the typical worries, I think every teacher has had at one time or another.
My teacher friend, in the classroom next door, told me how she had similar worries her first couple of years and didn’t take any time off. Then she got married and took over a week off for her wedding and honeymoon. One big stress was leaving her students for so long.
When she returned, because she had left great plans and been prepared, everything ran smoothly. She shared with me about how she had this aha moment that it was ok to take time off for herself. It became an aha moment for me too!
