I would be careful with labs!!  If anything goes wrong the sub could be in
a bind.

I work one day a week for the Coconino County Superintendent of Schools
Office.  So I have been struggling with the sub issue.  After listening to
me gripe about subs for several years, my wife got her sub certification
and now she is my sub.  She has little experience with science, but I am a
patient teacher and she does a great job with my students.  The most
important thing is that we are able to work together and I can keep track
of my students.
