Substitute Teacher Intensive
with Linda Roy
Substitute teaching is valuable and rewarding with benefits for the employee and the school. Administrators, teachers and students all value good substitute teachers. Whether new to substitute teaching or looking to freshen your classroom presence, this program will enhance key skills & understandings that will lead to your success at any grade level. Through class presentations, discussion and readings we will address behavior expectations, getting and keeping students on task, and building positive relationships. Examine lesson plans at all grade levels, preview what to expect in any day on the job and discuss the role of technology in todays classrooms. Consider the variety of subbing opportunities in special education and review the professional behaviors that will ensure you are kept as busy as you wish. In order to ease anxieties you might have about fitting into the school community, some of the RSU 23 (OOB) and/or Saco School building principals will visit our class for informal but informative presentations. Brief walk and talk principal-led tours of some of the buildings may be arranged. Because good schools share best practices, these snapshots and tips will be easily translatable to any school within or outside of our two districts. Leave the course with a notebook containing the course presentation, relevant readings and resources that will help you on the job. Course fee refunded upon successful completion. If hired by Saco &/or RSU 23 schools, you will receive the highest substitute pay rate for that district.
Required: Masks and distancing. Bring proof of registration. You must have access to a computer and email and are responsible for completing state-mandated fingerprinting & Criminal History Records (additional fees) and an employment application.
Linda Roy taught primary grades in OOB schools for 39 years and has a Professional Teacher MS. Ed degree. Since retiring she has substituted regularly in our local schools.
