Whenever a teacher has to go to a meeting or leave the classroom for some reason, the teacher will have a substitute teacher come in and teach. The teacher then expects students to be on their “best behavior” for the sub while they are gone. Hopefully, the students ARE on their best behavior. But that’s not always the truth. Students sometimes think that since their original teacher is not present, they can mess around, and possibly even trick the substitute to let them do something their normal teacher would not let them do. Mr. Reinitz has been a substitute teacher for 6 years. He enjoys substitute teaching. He says that most of the time students are on their best behavior, but some students aren’t. We should be grateful for our substitute teachers and be respectful and polite to them.
