Virtual & On-Campus Substitute Teacher

Full-time; 2020-2021 School Year

We are seeking a flexible, responsible, and dynamic individual to join our community and teaching team as a long-term substitute teacher.

Are you…

  • A passionate and compassionate educator and role model?
  • A responsible and creative educator ready to support in various grades and subject areas?
  • An effective communicator and thoughtful listener, both online and in-person?
  • An inclusive community member who sees and appreciates the diverse fabric of our city and community?


  • Bachelor’s degree
  • 1-2 years of experience supervising and/or teaching children
  • Technical proficiency with demonstrated experience with Zoom, Google Docs, and Google Classroom
  • Ability to work with multiple stakeholders (students and colleagues) in a warm and empathetic manner

Primary Responsibilities

The long-term substitute teacher will be asked to support all grades (K-8) and all subjects. Their schedule will be consistent but the classes they will support will depend on staffing needs of the day. Current availability will be needed to support online distance learning, with future availability to transition to an on-campus role when students and faculty return to campus.


You will need to be:

  • Responsible for previewing the lesson (we will provide lesson plans) so you are as prepared as possible to teach
  • Flexible and adaptable when plans (and tech) change
  • Responsive, communicative, and able to provide support
