“I'm a substitute teacher. The kids act up a lot when there are subs so it can be difficult, but I know they're being kids. I try to never raise my voice and instead I ask them if I can help them with their assignment or I try to distract them by asking about their days. I miss my own kids when I'm working but my husband hurt his back and can't work anymore so it's good I have a job.”
