I am thankful for Aesop, the Automated Educational Substitute Operator Placement! Aesop is the computer system our school system uses to notify substitutes of job opportunities and assignments. It works well for the most part and is so nice that I can choose to get a phone call or email. I am so thankful that I get to work with children but don't have to make that full time commitment of having a class and doing lesson plans, etc, etc, etc. I have been substitutung 12 years and it has been a perfect fit for me and our family.
