    take over

    Considering that a teacher is sick, and needs a substitute, what's the difference between "to fill in for the teacher" and "to take over a group". Would either of them necessarily convey the idea of temporariliness?

    Re: take over

    Yes, only "fill in" implies a temporary situation. "Taking over" could be permanent.
