Substitute Teachers Needed

We are always in need of substitute teachers. You can be a substitute teacher without having an educational degree. Our teachers leave great sub plans and we will help you every step of the way.


If you or someone you know is interested, I encourage you to explore getting a short call sub license with the Minnesota Department of Education.
