Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – August 17, 2012
Pros: you got to choice what school you wanted
Cons: it's not always monday- friday
You sign in early on line and see what schools needs a substitute teacher . You must respond quickly to get job. You walk into the classroom read the lesson the plan that the teacher left and follow it . If there is no lesson plan you must create your own very quickly. At the end of the day you leave a detail report to the teacher and if you really – more... enjoyed teaching the class leave a letter showing interest to sub for that teacher again. – less
Educator (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – April 5, 2014
Pros: the staff at kelly did everything to make our lives better! great benefit plan!
Cons: would not verify employment, $84 fee for "re-fingerprinting every 5 years"
I loved working for Kelly because it gave me the flexibility to manage my own schedule and appointments. The challenges of being a substitute for K-12 teachers are many. The staff at Kelly did everything to make our lives better. For example, there was an affordable health insurance plan, choices of half-day or whole-day assignments, both online and – more... telephone scheduling, one-time hourly rate increase after working 30+ hours, paid holidays for those who work most hours. My only complaint was the $84 charge for "re-fingerprinting every 5 years". I could see no reason why a temporary, part-time employee should be required to pay for that. I rate Kelly highly in every other category! – less
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), New Orleans – April 2, 2014
Pros: choose your own schedule.
Cons: no regularity
I spend my day trying to keep unmanageable kids that don't seem to want to learn from getting into trouble. This company provides barely any training and doesn't seem to care about its employees at all.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Terre Haute, IN – April 2, 2014
As a substitute teacher, I learned that you need to have a lot more patience than I have. I did not mind doing it a few days a week, but to keep your sanity, I would never sub all week. I enjoyed the middle school aged students the most and tried to keep my work at my childrens schools.

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FL – February 24, 2014
Pros: flexibility, hands-on training for educators, weekly pay
Cons: low hourly rate, inconsistent work nature, no advancement
I decided to make a career change into becoming an elementary school teacher. I recently relocated to Jacksonville and felt being a substitute teacher would not only give me hands-on training but also determine which schools would be a good place to start my new career. I accepted assignments for all grade levels including special needs all over the – more... Jacksonville area. I made a mental list of which schools I had an enjoyable time substituting versus the ones that were not so enjoyable. If you are new to Jacksonville school system, either you can follow my strategy to determine which school is for you and/or you can ask other substitutes their opinions about different schools. Schools have either a good, bad, or "stay away" reputation. I take my hat off to those educators, both permanent and temporary, who work in the "stay away" schools. When I first started with Kelly, other subs gave me a verbal list of which schools to AVOID. A couple of times, I ignored the advice given to me and selected the assignment. Some of those assignments, I wish I had listened and stayed away. The pay is great for SUPPLEMENTAL income only. For more money and consistent income, try to aim for permanent substitute positions through a school directly. Especially, if you're taking steps to become a permanent teacher. Overall, Kelly provides great hands on experience for classroom management and teaching. Also, great supplemental income not good for sole income. – less

I work as a substitute teacher, and the staff is excellent. I have really learned classroom management and how to deal with irate parents. The hardest part of the job is the pay. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the children and the staff.

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Jacksonville, Florida – November 8, 2013
Pros: weekly pay, convenient working schedule for family purposes
Cons: no pay when students are out on holiday breaks and summer break.
As a Substitute Teacher, I immediately introduce myself to the classroom. I reinforce the regular instructed rules. I sometimes give the students the opportunity to introduce themselves as well.I have learned while being a substitute, that every child does learn things differently. Some students require a hands-on approach or visual example and some – more... require independent learning by reading the information at he or she own pace. Kelly's management is very clear, consistent and considerate with expectations I am to follow. The hardest part of this job is trying to maintain order of a class who may have a few disruptive students who chooses to be challenging, regardless of my approach.The most enjoyable moment of being a substitute teacher is being able to serve and encourage students who may or may not feel confident enough to continue reaching for goals; whether it's to complete daily assignments or even graduating from their current grade. I always advise every student that "Anything" is achievable as long as they don't give up. Failure may come, but that's when we should pick up the pieces and try it again. – less
