  1. Boy these substitute teachers are going to get rich. Wohoo that’s a whopping 27,000 a year if they work every day. Oh I forgot you are doing it for the kids not the money. Well the superintendent and the rest of the the staff are “doing it for the kids also”, why is their pay upper class for this area.
