Various substitutes leave imprints on students Danielle Eriksson Illinois is currently in need of more teachers and substitute teachers. The state is and has been hiring more teachers, which calls for more available substitute teachers to pick up the days that full-time salaried teachers need off. A substitute teacher’s job is to ensure the continuation of student learning when there is a need for a teacher to be absent from his/her classroom. Since substitute teachers vary in their education, experience, and motives to be substituting, each one has a different approach to students and the educational environment, employing different methods to control--or to not control--the classroom. Nevertheless, students are accustomed to having substitute teachers every so often; they have a firm grip on ideal characteristics of substitutes as well as non-admirable characteristics. “A good sub gets directions out of the way quickly, doesn’t try to teach things that they don’t know, and isn’t annoying,” senior Mercy Asilis said. “There are some subs who constantly talk about their children and also some subs who ‘shh’ you at every single thing you do,” senior Matan Moyal said. Because each substitute has a different style in how they handle students, conflict sometimes rises between substitute and student. Other times, bonds are made. “A cool sub that everyone loves is Mama D. She’s a savage to the kids who misbehave; she calls them out and embarrasses them, while she’s chill with all the kids that are doing what they’re supposed to be doing,” senior Matan Moyal said. A substitute is employed on a day-to-day basis and is an at-will employee of the District. According to Illinois State Board of Education, the District may remove a substitute’s name from its list of eligible substitutes at any time without prior notice. Moreover, a substitute may be removed from an assignment at any time if he/she is not performing to the District’s satisfaction. Substitutes receive only monetary compensation for time worked and no other benefits. In D214, substitute teachers are paid the rate of $.39 per minute.

In terms of work schedule for substitute teachers, many substitutes use a system called Aesop; Aesop offers substitutes both phone and web services for finding and accepting jobs. With Aesop, substitutes can plan their schedule ahead of time, choose Non- Work Days, specify preferred schools, and adjust call times to fit their schedule. They receive phone and e-mail notifications of available jobs that they qualify for and can choose to accept or reject them. Most teacher employee absences are entered into Aesop the day before the absence occurs, but teachers can enter their planned absences very far in advance. So, substitutes can discover available jobs days, weeks, or even months in advance and claim them. The qualifications required for a license to substitute teach in District 214 consist of a bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution of high education and a Illinois Professional Educator License (PEL) or Illinois Substitute Teacher License (SUB).

“Because I already have my teacher certification (PEL) I didn’t need to get a special substitute certification (SUB). I have the PEL because I’m trying to get an actual teaching job--the substitutes with a PEL are usually right out of college who are subbing while they look for a full time teaching job or retired teachers who are coming back to sub, especially within their department. The SUB is for people who are maybe retired from another job and are just substituting for extra money,” substitute teacher Ryan Fischer said. The only additional training that substitutes must undergo to sub in D214 is completing an online training program (required of anyone employed by District 214 ) through the Global Compliance Network. The program consist of several tutorials on things such as Ethics & Boundaries for School Employees, Digital security and Protection, General Harassment, Internet Policy, etc.

GoFundMe is the world’s number one personal fundraising website. With four easy steps, this mobile-friendly campaign is able to raise money for medical expenses, education costs, and more. “I like the overall idea of a people donating money to those in need for bills, etc. through a campaign like this,” junior Michael Manniello said. People have raised more money on GoFundMe than any other campaign. There are no penalties for missing a goal, no deadlines or goal requirements and people get to keep every donation they receive. When first searching for the GoFundMe website, most campaigns that first appear on the website are medical, tuition, and funeral expense related. Billions of dollars have been raised for these personal causes. This website continues to help people with their needs. Students here have some personal relationships to people who have started a campaign on this website. “My friend started a campaign because he was working two jobs while having to pay for dance class as well as having his car break down. He didn’t have any transporta-

tion to his classes, which would help advance his career, so he started a page to fund him a new car,” junior Olivia Glowacka said. To create a campaign, a person must fill out a profile and pick what category the cause belongs to. Along with that, a summary of the cause is placed below the picture. Next, the page is shared publicly with GoFundMe’s built-in connections to Facebook, Twitter and email. Anyone around the world can donate by paying online. Then, the donations are tracked and the receivers can send thank-you notes from their dashboard. Along with the donations, GoFundMe takes a 5 percent fee from each one. An email is also sent to the person who set up the account whenever a donation has been received. “I think it’s beneficial to start a campaign publicly because it is available to virtually anyone. Not everyone has the same resources, so it’s great that people can get the support and funds for something important that they can’t pursue without the money people donated,” Glowacka said. GoFundMe gives the opportunity for people to give and receive around the world to help those in need. •Click here to vote for your favorite GoFundMe story on CorreLive!

College campus tours aid students in making college decisions Kelly McCarthy Throughout the past year, many seniors and juniors have been going on college visits and campus tours in order to gain insight on which colleges they could envision themselves at. While many different factors go into making the final college decision, a college visit can really

help students figure out if a school is the right fit for them. “Going to visit a college helps narrow down your list because it gives you a better feel of the atmosphere around the school; pictures and statistics can’t do that,” senior Cassie Kruchten said. In order to visit many of the colleges on their lists, students sometimes schedule college-visiting road trips over summer vacation or spring breakso that they can visit multiple colleges in a short amount of time. Each college visit generally consists of an admissions presentation followed by a student-led walking tour of the campus. While every college tour has its own unique details, most tours take prospective students through academic buildings with classrooms and lecture halls, the recreation center, library, dining halls, and residence halls. “My favorite part of college visits is seeing the dorm rooms because I like seeing how different people decorate their rooms,”

senior Allison Busby said. Other students pay less attention to the actual campus and place more focus on the surrounding town and area of the college. “It’s important to see the area surrounding the campus because that’s where you will be spending most of your time,” senior Patrick O’Brien said. The walking campus tour also helps students to get a feel for the student life on campus. “On a tour, I typically look at what the student body is doing. I observe how many people are out with friends, studying in the library, or walking from class to class,” Kruchten said. The admissions presentation can also give students an idea of the different types of students that attend the school in addition to the different types and amounts of financial aid available to students at that college. “I need to make sure I can financially afford it and that I can see myself being there for the next four years,” O’Brien said. Although most college visits and tours are pretty similar, some students have gone on particular college visits that really stick out in their minds because of exceptional admissions presentations or welcoming committees. “The presentation at Baylor was unlike others because they had fun games and props to take pictures with while you waited [for the presentation to start]. By doing this, you have an opportunity to bond with other prospective students, and your parents socialized with other parents too,” Kruchten said.

ENTERTAINMENT

R for Real Talk goes horizontal, and other weird stuff Joshua Irvine Given its January, the month where movies come to die and this publication goes online, this column once again is forced to divert from its formula. Thankfully, Netflix remains as active as ever, and given the moratorium on writing about Netflix at this publication has been temporarily lifted due to the lack of material for criticism, please enjoy the following mini reviews of television shows and films the author watched over my Christmas break. The X-Files A FBI agent plays skeptic to her eccentric partner’s wild conspiracy theories on extraterrestrial life, despite the fact that all the evidence for alien life is present in the fact her partner is played by the inhumanly sexy David Duchovny. Come for the rubber masked monsters and the nostalgia for a time when evil old white guys using the government for their nefarious schemes was fiction, stay in the vain hope the show will ever resolve any of its overreaching plot threads (spoiler alert: it won’t). Friends Annoyingly punctuated title card aside, enjoy the classic tale of a group of twentysomethings trying to sort out their lives from within their ridiculously large Manhattan apartments - until you realize that this canned premise was the best thing television could offer 20 years ago. Watch it out of misplaced nos-

talgia for the 90s, or if Netflix bugs out loading “How I Met Your Mother.” NCIS Wait, this is still on TV? Didn’t like half the main characters die or get written off? The Killer John Woo directs this ultrabloody Hong Kong crime thriller tragedy about a repentant assassin forced into One Last Job in order to help a beautiful nightclub singer he accidentally blinded during his last hit. Blood squibs, bullets and doves fly as the assassin struggles to save his true love... and his other true love in the cop chasing him in an increasingly homoerotic game of cat and mouse. Its the cinematic equivalent of fast food - messy, simplistic, and oh so good. 30 Rock Return to the set of “TGS with Tracy Jordan” in the rapid-fire “Saturday Night Live” parody that pioneered the role of women in network television, launched the career of Childish Gambino alter ego Donald Glover, made Tina Fey a superstar, and probably ended up being a better show than the one it was spoofing. Carrie Fisher shows up in one episode too, so add poststar-mortem grief-watching to that pro/con list.

•Courtesy IMdB/NBC Universal s evidenced by these promotional images for a movie from 1994 and a show from 2013, there isn’t much in terms of entertainment right now.

A

Reservoir Dogs Be simultaneously shocked, horror-struck and completely amazed by this quintessential indie thriller that made Quentin Tarantino a household name in households with really lax movie viewing rules. Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth and a bunch of other names half the student body will recognize from the backs of DVDs in their basement they’re not allowed to watch. Pulp Fiction ...and then immediately watch “Pulp Fiction” like I did in the equally shocking, horrifying and amazing

and slightly funnier film that made Quentin Tarantino an international star in even more questionably lax households. Once again, Harvey Keitel, Steve Buscemi, and Tim Roth all star alongside a slightly expanded cast that also includes the righteously Bible-quoting Samuel L. Jackson and the guy who played Danny from “Grease.” And despite the fact that these two films sound near totally identical on paper, they couldn’t be more different. Stranger Things This show is absolutely amazing. How is no one talking about this?

...actually, it’s just that Potbelly offers new cuisine to Randhurst Sneh Pandya

Mount Prospect’s Randhurst Mall has recently added a new restaurant to the chain, and I could not be more excited. Potbelly, a family owned sandwich shop established in 1996, is a favorite around Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. The now national chain is known famously for its array of sandwiches, soups, and most recently, mac and cheese. Their sandwiches, ranging from

classic ham and cheese or vegetarian options to more complex creations such as the pizza or mediterranean, come in original sizes, “skinnys” that can be paired with their soups, salads, or mac and cheese, and for especially hungry eaters, “bigs.” Their variety of relatively healthy and tasty options, combined with usual meal prices under $10 and a proximity to Hersey, make for Potbelly to surely be one of the more popular food options for students during lunch.

Evanston gets more cheesy Lauren Theisan

If Evanston wasn’t fun, unique, and authentic enough, Cheesie’s Pub & Grub adds to the college town. Cheesie’s Pub & Grub is a restaurant that provides a creative new spin on the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup combo. They have different types of sandwiches such as their take on the original grilled cheese with mac and cheese inside, and many other fun versions that make it an exciting place to try something new.

It is located right by Northwestern and always has a football game playing in the background. If the food isn’t great enough, Cheesie’s Pub & Grub also has a wall for customers to sign their names and write about their feelings towards the place. Cheesie’s Pub & Grub is a great place for adventure a casual place suitable for any type of outing.

Ed Sheeran re-emerges in the music industry

Breakfast is redefined at Gail’s Carriage House

Lexi Wachal

Nate Horne

After over a year of absence, Ed Sheeran returned back to the music industry more vivacious than ever. This past Friday, Sheeran released two brand new singles, “Shape of You” and “Castle on a Hill” off his upcoming album. “Shape of You” is easily the standout single, one of which Sheeran originally penned for singer Rihanna. The song itself is unique with a

more tropical and lively sound than other of Sherran’s hits. As much as I love this song, I do admit that it would be better released in the summer (but to be honest, I don’t want to wait anymore for more Sheeran). Once again, Ed Sheeran is finally back in the music world, fitting in the groove like he never left.

From Max and Erma’s to Honeyberry Café, the slot at the West end of Northpoint Strip Mall has housed a variety of breakfast/lunch restaurants, but none like Gail’s Carriage House. Being a self titled breakfast connoisseur, I entered Gail’s with a stern fork, ready to heavily critique my dining experience, but the flaws were minimal. To begin, the staff was delightful. An educated and engaging waitress

was quick with a joke and incredible at pairing menu options together to enhance each customer’s experience. And in terms of basic food options, the pancakes were the ideal blend of a fluffy texture and a warm, delicate taste. The hash browns were crispy and flavorful. And the bacon, my god the bacon, was the greatest bacon I’ve ever had.


OPINIONS

‘New year, new me’ Ellen Bakal

We have heard it once, and we’ll hear it a billion more times: “New year, new me!” I’m normally the first person to shut down silly ideas like these, but why not take advantage of a new year to start anew? Although nothing huge really happens when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, America is convinced that something does. Our culture is massively convinced that we have a fresh start at the new year to rid of the bad habits and become the people we desire to be. With the year we’ve had (politically speaking), I think I’ll jump on to any concept that has the nation positively making changes together. I’ve decided to take my resolutions to a more serious level this year. I’m not going to lie, 2016 was not my best year, and no, that is not me attempting to conform to the crazy Twitter uproar against 2016. I had a few losses, but mainly I felt as if I lost a bit of self that I loved. So, I took action by buying a planner and writing (actually writing, no Notability or iPhone notes nonsense) about the person I hope to grow into by the end of 2017. After writing an imaginative and protracted

excerpt about my future self, I highlighted the main points that I was making. Another tip that I have for those making their “new” self is to organize and comprehend the branch that goals grow from. Distinguishing the physical, emotional, and mental goals from one another gave me a sense of the values I have in my life. The world we live in can be so filled with negativity, as our society often hunts for it like treasure. So taking the negativity of 2016 and turning it into a phenomenon of goals is the best approach we can make. The ball dropping is to stand as much more than a reason to kiss someone and cheer, but as a symbolic and refreshing splash to the face. As we wash off the people we were in the past, we should uncover our “new” selves. Admittedly, I sometimes bail on my huge resolutions pretty early into the year: the more I set for myself, the more likely I am to hold on to •Flickr a few more. Students can benefit in tremendous ways by writing down their resolutions and attempting to stick to them. This is due to the epic timing that our district has created. We have finals nearly three weeks past the start of the year; this gives students the advantage to put their new work and school appetite into full effect. When we do this, we can maximize our chances of final success.

Mindful attitudes conduct productivity Jamie Anderluh I will admit, to begin, that I am a yoga-doing, meditationpracticing, juice-drinking human (though I balance out these activities with an intense love for carbs and various kinds of ice cream). But the hippie segment of my heart has allowed me to uncover a practice that has bettered all departments of my lifestyle: mindfulness. Mindfulness is, quite simply, being present. It is not being dependent on the prospects of the future or being absorbed by occurrences of the past. Of course, most of us have heard that being present is important. Advice regarding our tendency to be consumed by the past and future is often clichéd, and it’s easy to dismiss mindfulness as trivial and unrealistic. But in an environment often ruled by the future, we can all take time to move more slowly. Students can easily spend time in high school thinking only about the next assignment or the next weekend. We can even spend our time thinking only of our futures in college. Being a student means that, inevitably, we have to plan for the future. But it does not mean that we can’t take time for ourselves when we need it. Being rushed to get to a future that we cannot predict only heightens stress.

And being present is not limited to a certain place or time. We can practice mindfulness in a passing period or at lunch. We can stop ourselves from being caught up in the things that make us anxious, the things we cannot control. That iconic idea of the American work ethic, that of our ability to put work into the present to manifest some reward in the future, is often excessive. If we are constantly waiting to be happy in the future, we will never find happiness in the present. Happiness is, more often than not, a state of mind. It’s just choosing to be happy. When we go through the day without even realizing what we’re doing, consumed by a state of autopilot, we eliminate the sense of awareness that allows us to be happy. We must recognize and understand what we’re doing to let us love what we’re doing. Let’s stop going through life without purpose. Let’s love what we do right now, in this moment, and stop waiting for •Flickr the reward. I’m sure all of this sounds mushy, but mindfulness is an approach to life we often overlook. So I’ll be harsh: stop waiting for the day when problems, stresses, or failures are nonexistent. They will always exist. All we can do is find what we love in the stresses and find what we love in the calm sandwiched between them. If we take time for ourselves in the present, happiness does not seem so impossible. Don’t look back on time in high school only to realize it was spent thinking of a better future.

The true importance of empathy Nathan Kim

Humans are social animals. We almost entirely depend on interaction, our survival as a species dictated through the foundations of our relationships with others. The inability or refusal to empathize with others hinders our ability to create these connections. Although the contributing factors of such an issue are debatable, it is easily recognizable that modern society is slowly shifting to become more self-centered, and less interested in empathizing with others. We often overlook how our actions could affect others, and instead just go with whatever benefits ourselves only. Instead of simply charging through life without any consideration, we should all try to take greater initiative within our lives, taking the time to listen and empathize, without judgement.

Obama’s farewell leaves lasting legacy Katherine Wiemold Tuesday night Barack Obama addressed the nation for the last time at McCormick Place in Chicago. His bittersweet words were a perfect way to end his eight years in office. His reminder to stay strong as a democratic country comes at a time when it is much needed and shows why he made a such a great president. His positive reminders of how the country improved in the past and can continue to improve in the future even had me believing that the next four years weren’t necessarily doomed. Obama gave the nation a speech that it so desperately needed to hear the other night, and his words should always serve as reminder as what people are capable of doing in the next four years. He has set high standards of behavior and leadership for all presidents to come.

New year, sa

Health goals once again dominate the year Heidi Freitag The new year has arrived and has made many students reflect on their upcoming resolutions for 2017. Resolutions are beginning to be more common with students and can help motivate them to reach their goals. Whether their resolutions are related to finances, academics, or improving their health, students plan to apply their resolutions to the new year. New Years resolutions are starting up and bringing hope and comfort to many people. With resolutions mostly pertaining to the improvement of health, some students agree that good health is the main goal for this year. of students made "I think that good health or fitness health is a good New resolutions Years resolution for anyone," junior Alexis Beidleman said. Students start off the year making resolutions about their health, whether it's their mental or physical health. Going to the gym, drinking more water, and eating healthier are just some of the goals that can be made

or achieved by students. "My goal for this year is definitely to run more, especially when it's sunny outside," Beidleman said. Creating more physical goals can be motivation to actually follow through with it. But other students believe that the fitness side of resolutions is just as important as the mental side. Getting more sleep for example, is one of the many goals that students aim for. "My New Years resolution is to get more sleep, so I will be more alert throughout the school days," junior Krista Thuer said. Making resolutions relating to sleep can benefit students and enhance their academic performance. As some students hit the gym, make a pact to eat healthier, or strive to get more sleep, others reflect on why their New Years resolution is important to them. "I have a New Years resolution because I believe that if I set a goal for myself, it will be real and make it easier to reach it," Thuer said. Setting goals can be a big step towards reaching them. This new year students continue to focus on their New Year's resolutions and plan to achieve them.

Money, money, exercise? Katherine Weimold The new year is upon on us, which means that many people in the country are reevaluating their lives to set goals for their future. According to statisticsbrain, 41percent of Americans set New Year resolutions, but of that percentage only nine percent achevive their goals by the end of the year. Most might fail because they choose to start living healthier, or improve their love lives. Stasticsbrain says that only 8.5 percent of people choose a goal to better their financmade ns s t n e o d i t u t u l s es. o of ial res "Most don't choose financ a finance goal because they are lazy and rather just spend their money on food," junior Victoria Kalicka said. Unlike most, Kalicka is choosing to improve her finial standing this year. "Half my paycheck goes into a savings account, and the other half goes

to me for what I need. I never touch the savings account unless it's for an emergency," Kalicka said. Others focus on keeping their goals more realistic. "My goal is to spread happiness and courage because the world is cruel. People are too negative," junior Yazmine Segura said. "Money goals are stupid because money won't give you any happiness, it will always just come and go." Segura said "I'm saving money for the future this year because I want to be able to travel in the future and go to college in a few years without having to worry about having enough money," junior Jodie Hermann said.

What is your New Year's resolution?

With second semester quickly approaching, students are able to reflect on their academic successes so far, but also set goals for the upcoming semester. "One of my academic goals this year is to stay more focused in class. I will try to keep my phone in my pocket and not on my desk to be less distracted," junior Kathryn Gerardi said. If one class is proving to be a struggle for students, goal setting can be a helpful way to make sure the focus more on that class. Academic goals and New Year's resolutions may not be grade or GPA related. Goals can be to procrastinate less or stay more organized. "I want to stop procrastinating. I set a timer for thirty minutes and see how much work I can get done when I'm focused," junior Rita Moujoukian said. Especially for juniors, 2017 is a great time to make academic improvements, as these will be the last grades they receive before they begin applying to colleges, and standardized tests are approaching, if not already here. My academic goals are to get a better ACT score and also keep up my hard work," junior Emily Kyle said. "I plan on using my ACT prep book that is collecting dust." With finals next week, the New Year can also be a great time to focus on short term academic goals, like studying for finals or getting an A on the last few assignments before the semester ends.
