Remember that there is a TTOC email listserv that is available through the BCTF website. There are lots of tips and ideas that are shared through the list, and you are able to connect with other people from around the province. bctf.ca/cgi-bin/mailinglistssub.pl
TeachBC.bctf.ca is a relatively new website that is full of lesson plans for a single day, or a range of days. If you are called out into a subject area that you are not familiar with, please check out the web page for ideas and extra help. You can also upload any of your lesson plans that you wish to share.
You are part of the teaching force, and safety/security is part of your job as well. Always ask the principal or secretary for any pressing information you may need to know before starting the day. Also, ensure you have a set of keys for the day in order to be able to keep yourself and the students safe at all times. If you are unsure about an issue or situation, contact the WVTA immediately.
