Wishcasting Wednesday

You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt on your blog and then add a direct link to your post in the box [at the link] below. Support wishes by visiting other participants, leaving a comment saying “As (insert name) wishes for her/himself, so I wish for her/him also.” It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together.

How Do You Wish to Come Out of Your Shell?

This is such a timely question for me today!  You see I'm a substitute teacher and have been for several years now, but I have never worked in the middle school of the district I work in primarily.  Well tomorrow I'll be subbing for one of the art teachers there - and it's my first day back to subbing this school year!  This is a big deal for me, as middle school is where I am hoping to find a permanent teaching position after finishing my masters, and while I've worked in other middle schools without any real issues, I've heard horror stories about this one from other subs.

I *so* don't want to fade into the background and be just another *babysitter* to the kids.  And I don't want the kids to walk all over me.  I want to be a fantastic sub, I want the students to like me, and the other teachers to notice me.  I don't want to be too terrified to say anything and avoid the staff lounge.  I want to interact with everyone and be the best sub they've ever had!
