By now some of our substitutes have been presented with the option of taking a long term assignment or have experienced a long term assignment. One of the most common issues that our substitutes face with being in any assignment especially a long term assignment is classroom presence and motivation. Classroom presence and motivation is key to aiding in the accomplishment of maintaining classroom management. Here are a couple of suggestions:

1. Stick with a Routine

Not having a set of routines or parameters will cause chaos. Students of any age or grade need structure and routine to manage their day.

2. Voice Variation

Use a firm voice to grab student’s attention. Speak with authority and intention whenever giving direction or correction. Speaking with authority does not mean yelling.

3. Remain Mindful of your Body Language

Stand tall, relaxed, make eye contact, and smile. A simple smile can change the projection of the day and the perception that students have of your willingness to help them.

4. Plan

If there is an assignment, project, field trip, program, even lunch you must plan. Think of all possible materials or even steps that you can door take to eliminate chaos and confusion.

5. Make time for Reflection

Allow students time to reflect on the activity and their learning. Also set aside time for you reflect about how a lesson or activity went. Note and make necessary adjustments such as time, implementation, preparedness, and instructions given to students.

6. Celebrate

Think about the success of the students and the movement of learning goals and outcomes.


The Substitute Office would like to remind all substitute employees that it is district policy to clock in AND out. To ensure proper information transition to your time cards. While rare, if you are unable to clock in using the biometric clock, be sure to inform the campus Office mManager.
