I've actually gone to work with no voice because it's honestly easier to just go into work than it is to call out and have to email sub plans I'm a teacher.
This. And to make it worse, our principal informed us that there is a sub shortage in the system right now, so if we don't come in our kids will likely be split between other classrooms to be basically babysat all day. So as much as my coworkers don't want to catch the viral bronchitis I've had for four weeks, they'd prefer I come in than have their classrooms disrupted.
I did stay home the day after I sprained my ankle a couple months ago. I spent 3 hours that night writing detailed lesson plans for a sub. When I returned, I was told that the plans weren't even looked at. A string of different people had taken turns supervising my kids - the principal, the gifted math teacher, the librarian, etc. Not a whole lot was taught or learned that day.
