How do I get a job as a substitute teacher with barely any experience?

Dec 3, 2015 12:14am

I am a recent university graduate, and I am looking for a job as a substitute teacher. I am actually in the process of becoming a certified teacher, but I do not start those courses until next fall. I would like to know how I should present myself to potential employers. I know that to be a great sub I need to teach the classes that I am assigned.

      Go to the school district and complete an application.Follow up with the building secretary to find out when you will hear if the Board of Education approved you as a substitute for their district. Do not limit your choices.

        Many, but not all school districts hire subs who are not certified. Sub salaries can vary based on certification or lack thereof.
