I love working at our schools – there is something new to learn and experience everyday. It feels great to know that I am supporting teachers and students, while also having flexibility in my schedule. I love that we work as a team.”

Kim McCarthy
Guest Teacher

I really love subbing. There is a lot of flexibility with this job – you can set your preferences with schedule, location, and grade-level. I am able to help teachers out in a way that I know they greatly appreciate. If you like being around kids, you will love this job.

Aleta Moretz
Guest Teacher

I love that I get to teach. I was an educator for 21+ years and missed the students when I retired. Subbing allows me the balance of continuing to teach without taking on the additional responsibilities of full-time teachers. The hours are great – I arrive at a school in the morning and complete my teaching day by the early afternoon.
