I'm sick. I felt it coming on yesterday and then this morning when I woke up it was not good. I was not going to be able to teach today. I waited about 15 minutes and then at 6:30 I called in sick. Hopefully they were able to find another supply teacher. I felt bad, I HATE calling in sick. But as a teacher I think it's good when the teacher calls in sick to avoid other kids and teachers also catching the cold.
It's also too bad because now I have lost out on a day of work. You work, you get paid. You don't work, you don't get paid. I slept for another 5 hours and then had some lunch. I'm feeling A LOT better now and hopefully will be able to work tomorrow. I can definitely use the money especially because next week is already cut short with the long weekend!
Do you get paid sick days? Do you call in sick often?
