There are many reasons to become a substitute teacher. They include flexible regular work hours, no teaching experience necessary, relatively few non-work responsibilities, being influential to students, being able to do and have great practice for future teachers, and the ability to choose the age group of students to teach. Experiences may vary but what makes substitute teacher-author John Barr Jr. say "don't work for PESG or teach in Ypsilanti, Michigan"? Discover his untold stories of being a sub in his upcoming book, Confessions of a Substitute Teacher.

Written with such fervor and vividness, this eye-opener chronicles Barr's unforgettable experiences from the good times to the bad: from receiving letters and cupcakes from several students to being assaulted by a fifth-grader. Having "subbed" for twelve years, Barr provides insightful ideas and suggestions that may prove relevant to teaching today's classrooms especially in schools where students are known to disrespect teachers. He also shares a little bit of history and how each school district compare and contrast.

"I know I am taking a big risk by writing this book but it is a story that needs to be told, not just for me but for a lot of subs as well who are underpaid and under respected," Barr states.
