Guest Teacher Program Opportunity at LIU 18

Luzerne Intermediate Unit #18 Guest Teacher Program

Attention Community Members!

The Luzerne Intermediate Unit #18 Guest Teacher Program is a service offered to our local school districts, Career and Technical Institutes and the Intermediate Unit programs in Luzerne and Wyoming counties. The purpose of the program is to train individuals with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college in a variety of fields interested in serving as substitute teachers. The program provides substitute teacher training to people who have a bachelor’s degree but do not have a Pennsylvania teaching certificate. The blended training sessions, conducted by Luzerne Intermediate Unit professionals, will provide instruction in Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professionalism. This will be done in two parts. There is an online training and one ½ day training onsite from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. Guest teachers leave the program with an emergency permit issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and the basic knowledge to be an effective day-to-day substitute teacher in the consortium school districts and/or Luzerne Intermediate Unit classrooms. The opportunities are rewarding and gratifying. For more information visit the LIU website via the above link.
