Re: HD missing a day to work at other job
In your career you will work with/for people you like, and people you don't like. You can't control what others will do. Do your job to the best of your ability, and people will see you doing that. If you build a reputation of dependability then you'll have a much better chance of picking good people & places to work.
Summarizing, worry about you, you can't control them.
I agree to an extent but, you actually don't know how long this person has been in teaching. You are assuming it is someone early in their career. They could be late in their career. Another point. You don't know how large the band classes are, either. What if one band is split into two bands but now they have to be together with 120 total kids at once with two different sets of music? What if other classes are split between woodwind and brass and now have to be combined giving a total of 150? I say this because I was placed in the same situation before I retired years ago. And this happened not once, not twice, but four times in one semester. I handled it fine, but my point is, don't assume.
