Substitute Teaching Opportunities

What kind of experience is required?

An understanding of children and young people is essential. Have you raised your own children? Have you ever volunteered with children at church or another organization? Have you ever coached a sport? If so, you may have more experience than you think. Would you like a flexible work schedule with no weekend hours? Are you good at thinking on your feet? Would you like to make a difference in a young person’s life? Would you enjoy working with children and young people ranging from pre-kindergarten to high school? If you answered “yes” to these questions, becoming a substitute teacher might be for you.

Do I need to be a college graduate to substitute teach?

No. If you are a high school graduate, you are eligible.

What forms do I need to complete?

We will need a completed Substitute application (found at, an I-9 Form, a W-4 Form, and a Substitute Emergency Information Form. Additionally, you must be fingerprinted and have a background history check.

How much do substitute teachers make?

$75.00 per day or $37.50 per half day. Long term assignments may pay more.

Am I able to choose when and where I work?

Yes. You are always able to decide if you wish to work any assignment. You may chose the school, grade, and days you wish to work.
