Call the school district, and ask if they have an orientation scheduled for those who might want to substitute. Or check the district website for information.

And take a class from a local university on classroom management. Things are far different than they were even 5 years ago.

Hi, fallingwaters. I came out of retirement as a sub, and got cerrtified to be a full time math teacher. You will not have to worry about lesson plans. The "regular" teachers make these up for use by subs, and these are e-mailed into the school office (at least where I work). All you'll have to do is follow the plan :)

Who knows? You may enjoy "subbing" so much that you'll get certified as a teacher. GO FOR IT!
