It has been almost 30 years and I still remember my old substitute teacher, Mr. Morgan. He was the dream substitute teacher who arrived to my fourth grade classroom with a giant bag filled with candy. He quizzed us on different math problems and when we got questions right, he'd fling heaping handfuls of candy at the whole class. Needless to say, I remember that day as one of my best school days ever.


But, as an adult, I now know that not every substitute teacher is going to be as well versed in the art of winning over fourth graders as Mr. Morgan was. Some substitutes are totally forgettable, downright awful, or even just way overwhelmed with a huge stack of lesson plans and a classroom full of kids who want to do anything but listen to them.
