a day in the life of a substitute teacher..

Luckily, kindergartners and first graders haven't quite figured out how to play pranks (YET...) However, subbing these little ones has definitely kept me on my toes. So far, I have:

-subbed a bilingual kindergarten class (clearly they forgot to request a BILINGUAL sub) and I had to dig deep to remember Senor Navarro's vocab lessons....
-had a 5 year old boy tell me, "I told my mom you were so cute that I was going to marry you. I told her I'm gonna marry my substitute teacher!"
-been called every variation of my name possible (Miss Garrison is clearly too complex)
-had a girl wet her pants because she "forgot she had to go to the bathroom."
but my favorite.....

"We wish you were our real teacher, Miss Garrison!"

......prayers every day for my own classroom next year :)


  1. so adorable! there is nothing like the little ones. :) and the peeing in the pants bc "they forgot".. its not as rare as you might thing. ;)

  2. AWWWWWW!!!! I wish you were their REAL teacher too Miss Garrison!!!!!! :) LOVE YOU!
