How long have you been a sub? 

1 month

Why did you choose education as a career? 

I care about the development of children.

What is your fondest memory as a substitute teacher? 

While teaching at Harambee Academy, I ran into young members of a family that count me and my son as members of their family.

Why is being a substitute teacher important? 

Learning every day is important. A substitute teacher allows the teacher to take the time off without disrupting the class' progress.

Would you like to share anything else?

I'm a mom of an elementary school student. I'm an artist and performer. I enjoy dancing and traveling.

A Thought from EOC:

This is Delia's first time as a substitute teacher and we truly appreciate all that she does. She was eager to jump right in and consistently pick up assignments. Her dedication to her fellow staff members and students shows her passion for her work. She is an amazing example of what being an EOC sub represents.

As a guest teacher filler activities are essential to keeping students engaged when there is not enough work for the entire time you're in the classroom or most importantly when there is no work left at all. EOC believes that guest teachers should always help students have a fun and productive day even though their permanent teacher is not present. Worksheets are great resources but eventually they can get boring. Angela Watson, National Board Certified Teacher, author and host of Truth for Teachers podcast shares 5 no prep ways to turn just about any worksheet into a collaborative critical-thinking activity that’s fun and includes higher level thinking skills.

The strategies that Angela shares can work for grades 3-12 and can be modified for students who aren’t yet reading/writing independently. The best part is that her tips are engaging for kids and FUN. They'll ensure you leave a memorable impression as a guest teacher in any classroom.
