Have no fear, the substitute is here! Be prepared with the confidence and the knowledge for any classroom situation.

As a substitute teacher, you have the powers of a superhero. Who else could teach sixth grade math one day and then transform into a sub for the kindergarten gym instructor the next? What other educator bravely goes into work not knowing what subject or grade he or she will teach that day and still manages a smile?

I will soon be substitute teaching and I feel that this book will be a great guide and resource. However, purchasing it as an ebook does not allow me the use of the templates that are on the CD that would come with the Paperback version of the book. It would be nice if the CD could be mailed seperately so I could fully use this resource.
