Diary of a Substitute Teacher

December 15, 2016

Subbing in middle school (7th grade) "Tech" classes. The students are creating simple web sites.

Hey, I know this stuff! (As opposed to the Aztecs & Mayans or 4th grade "math with discs".)

I told today's classes that I've been building web sites & coding HTML by hand since 1994/95. Eyebrows go up.

Yes, I am older than the WWW. December 16, 2016

An 8th grader asked if I could talk more loudly so he could hear me.

My reply: "When your classmates stop talking you will be able to hear me."
