Unspoken Secrets: Top 10 Tips for Substitutes and New Teachers

Presentation Abstract

Have you ever heard that life offers no guarantees? Well, in education, there are at least two guarantees: that teachers will be absent from the classroom and in need of a substitute and that new teachers will benefit from support with student behavior. We encourage teachers, administrators, support staff, and all stakeholders to attend this valuable presentation to hear the top 10 unspoken secrets of behavior so desperately needed by substitutes and in many cases, new teachers.

Did you know that substitutes have walked out on jobs due to unmanageable behavior? Are you aware that some new teachers suffer in silence, afraid to ask for help with behavior? It is no secret that student misbehavior increases when there are subs and new teachers. Ask yourself: do teachers, administrators, and parents anticipate substitute teachers leaving problematic reports or new teachers experiencing behavioral challenges? Is this why teachers are reported to bribe and/or threaten students to behave appropriately in their absence?

A re-emerging need for rebuilding learning communities through practices that preserve the dignity of students and teachers remains central to restoring an ethos of support. In other words, schools can influence the climate by providing a framework of tools and strategies to support substitutes and new teachers. Deeper exploration of responsive practices is integral to connecting the school, home, and community with strategies for promoting positive learning climates.

In this session, ten valuable tips will be shared with all educational stakeholders that will help schools across grade levels and settings proactively respond to the unique needs of substitutes and new teachers. Participants will gain access to models, templates, and resources that can be shared with and utilized by substitute teachers in addition to new classroom teachers.
