Today I was called in to supply for a grade 8 class for the afternoon. When I arrived the teacher was still there and we talked for a few minutes about what my afternoon would be like. She started off by telling me I would be rotating between her class and the grade 7 class for math. I was really excited by this, as it would give me more experience for this class. She started going through the lesson she was going to teach and from what I saw it was going to be really good. Then she said its a little complicated so you can just watch a movie for both classes. I told her I was capable to teach the lesson and that I was upgrading to my intermediate in math. However that did not persuade her and she closed up her notes, handed me the movie and left. I am really sick and tired of teachers thinking just because I am a supply teacher that I don't know what I'm doing. Sorry for ranting, just wanted to blow off a little steam.
