    "So - is your regular teacher in an asylum then - don't blame them with your behaviour"

    Thank goodness the regular teacher has left me a one sentence, five word lesson 'plan', with no textbooks or other resources! Even better - the class, middle set Y9, claim to have no clue about the topic set, and their exercise books aren't here as their teacher has them in for marking.

    Oh, and as this is not my subject, I also have no notion of what to teach the class. Did I mention there's a TA in the classroom, scribbing a report about the lesson into her notebook which she says she's using 'as evidence'? Cheers love.

    Super! Juuuuust super! :mad::confused::confused::confused::confused:o_O

    What a wonderfully well behaved class; I have no idea why your regular teacher would need a day off.

    Some teachers just love having time off though - even for spurious reasons.

    Every school has one of those.

    My names Mr schneibley....

    Actually, I did tell some kids that. They looked me up and down with disbelief "she isn't is she?"
    They hadn't seen school of rock.
    That's living the supply teacher dream.
    That's the last schools fear, school of rock,

    I'm relieved to see the work set is to finish the work you insist you didn't start yesterday "with that other supply" in the books that aren't anywhere to be found. Thank you for telling me so politely, and then settling down to read your absorbing reading book in silence whilst I try to sort out what you should be doing.

    What a pile of rubbish your regular teacher has left for you. He/She must be a right idiot. (Well, you don't say it, but you sure think it).

    This pig pen room looks like it hasn't been cleaned for years.

    I love the way you said everyone would get a brand new exercise book when the new teacher starts. All my hard work planning and marking of the last few weeks , with no previous work available to go on, just go ahead, chuck it in the bin ...

    Don't mind me...

    School: Could you do another 2 days?

    Me: Great, that’s the weekend in New York/ Bahamas/ Australia paid for!
