I’ve been guilty, too.  When I was teaching, I would often plan a movie for my classes on days I knew I’d be gone.  Because you never know what kind of sub you’re going to get.

And so, now that I’m subbing, I’m watching movies.  Wednesday, it was the same 40 minutes of The Pursuit of Happyness, five times.  Thursday, a TV show called Princess.  Last week, it was The Pirates of Silicon Valley.

I don’t know a lot about the classes I’ve been subbing for, and I can’t expect the teacher to trust me with complicated lesson plans.

Still, I’m a little tired of watching movies.


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.

  1. Read Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs. It will entertain and inspire.
