Become a Substitute Teacher!

Substitute teaching is a flexible, fun, and critically important job that allows you to make an immediate impact on students and schools in your community. It's also a great way to explore a career in education--whether you're right out of college, or looking for your next professional adventure. As a substitute teacher, you get to chart your own course, working in the schools, grade levels and subjects that you choose.
