I get all my information about Supply teaching in my part of the world when in the Health Club Ladies changing room. Wonderful stuff. There is a catholic secretary school that uses supply teachers a lot, and things will be going on fine, until suddenly there is a message "don't come back". Its not a bad school, and there's no issues with staff or kids, so every one is mystified. And yet, due to the Supply Slueths of the Health Club Ladies changing room, we've worked out that it is the SECRETARY of the school who is doing this. Crimes that get her all hotted up. 1)Not wishing her good morning or good afternoon. 2) Using her pen to sign in and handing it back without thanking her. 3) Smiling. 4) Being young 5) Being unable to find the classroom and asking her where it is.. when she's already given you a map of the school. Be critical of her map, and you are OUT. Whenever a new Supply lady goes "Hey, things were going great at the school, but suddenly BAM, I was out"... we go, "What did you say to the woman who sits at the front desk and hates you for your very existence?" "Um.. nothing..." "That's it... You didn't say Good morning, so she'll be complaining about you" Oh how much would I love to name this character???
