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 enjoyed teaching the class leave a letter showing interest to sub for that teacher again.
I worked for Kelly services for a little over 3 months and I got called into the office and they let me go over what someone put on my facebook, I was told I had to go seek professional help from a shrink before I was ever able to come back to work.
great way to get in to a state job
they will gt rid of you quicker thank you can say i didnt do it
You don't make many friends within your company, but you meet many other teachers and learn of other potential employment if you're looking for full-time, non-temporary work. Your day goes as you will it to be, and schools tend to be helpful when dealing with students who are making your job difficult. The only negative to the job is that the pay is not great, but, as teachers make very little already, substitutes make less. I've received better compensation at retail jobs than I have with my college degree working at Kelly.
Paid lunch breaks, design your own schedule, only teach at schools you want to, can take a lot of time off when needed and with no reason
Low pay, unexpected behavioral issues at schools, have to be ready for when the school needs you to cover somewhere else entirely

Check in school office. Get lesson plans that teacher left and follow them. Maintain control and behavior of students according to school policies. Leave substitute report for teacher at the end of day. Lock room and take anything to office that needs to be returned.
Substitute Teacher K-12 (Current Employee) – Kansas City Metro – May 3, 2016
I enjoy flexibility in my substitute schedule. I can chose the days and school districts that I wish to sub for and plan my calendar accordingly. The rewarding part of this position is forming trusting relationships with the students and staff. I enjoy revisiting several schools.
Instructs assigned classes in the locations and at the times designated. Maintains reasonable rules of conduct, which encourages self-discipline and responsibility. Implements a variety of instructional techniques and instructional media as required in the instructional plans for the day. The hardest part of the job is when teachers leave no instructions/work for students to do during that day. The most enjoyable part of the job is when students are learning, to see that as a teacher is a beautiful sight.

My entire experience with Kelly has been great. The staff is friendly and want to see you succeed. My only complaint is with the job itself (which has no bearing on Kelly Staffing) Substitute teaching is just a tough job because students tend to give subs their worse. the pay isnt great, but for an inbetween time job, its convenient.

Pros I love working for Kelly Educational Staffing because I'm able to have control of scheduled. Also, I don't have to worry about being micro managed. Cons, The thing I don't like about working at Kelly Educational Staffing is the fact that there is no opportunity to earn more hourly because it is paid per day. Also, having a steady schedule is not guaranteed.

A substitute company gives a lot of flexibility which is nice. They expect you to work at least three days a week. The compensation is not much. It starts at $68 a day if you have an associates degree and goes up to $85 a day with bachelors. I think that once you get your actual teaching degree you are eligible to receive about $100 a day but even if you sub every day that still puts you right around the poverty line. It was good for while I was in school and to get some experience but I would never want to be a career substitute.
the substitute teacher imparts knowledge and provides instruction, just like regular teachers. But they work either for only a few days at a time or when the regular teacher is away on extended leaves, like a vacation. Substitute teachers use lesson plans, assign class work and homework, keep the class in order. They often work in new places, with new students. This is both a pleasure and a responsibility

Kelly educational staffing was a great experience. It provided an opportunity for a newly certified teacher to test his abilities and have many "at- bats" in front of students. There was not much professional support, but jobs were frequently available in a wide range of settings from urban centers to suburban.

I like the convenience of being a substitute teacher. You create your own schedule and select which assignments you want. The staff in the office are very professional and helpful. Overall, it is a good job.
Make your own schedule, you choose which jobs you want to accept, weekly pay.
