Substitute Teaching


Substitute Teaching in Weston


Substitute teachers are important members of the Weston Public School staff. Substitute teaching is an excellent way to learn about our schools while allowing principals and teachers to get to know you. To qualify as a substitute teacher, you need a college degree but do not need formal teacher training. However, you do need to enjoy and respect children and the educational process. Most substitute teaching assignments are at the elementary and middle levels and cover every subject area including special education. As a substitute teacher you may select the days of the week you wish to work, and the subjects/grade levels you desire.
