Substitute Teacher in Denton, TX
on June 20, 2022
Very flexible schedule: you can choose the grade you work with and the school you go at, the full day or the half of the day you work, and this is for every single day. You are your own boss. If school cares about discipline in class, then your day is a piece of cake. However, in many schools kids rule, and seems like, even teachers can't maintain the discipline.

Pay is low and benefits not worth. No paid time off or room to grow. Scheduling is okay but constant phone calls overwhelm your phone. No real training but hopefully district is nice.
Substitute Teacher in Cherry Hill, NJ

From the moment you begin working with this company you are on your own, you have to navigate the schools,who sometimes give the job you previously booked to their friends or other subs who may have arrived a few minutes earlier than you did...even though you are on time. Dependent on the district you sub with for that day, there may or may not be lesson plans. Overall though the kids in all districts are generally great and willing to learn. Just be engaging and show them you're not just a body in the room.

I love working here. The management team is very good to work with. I had one situation that was uncomfortable for me and the management team assured that I was pleased and comfortable again.
Paraprofessional in High Bridge, NJ

This company is terrible at communicating but if you were like me, I jumped in as a paraprofessional to get my foot in the door at a school for a teaching position when I got my degree. Only positive thing. Otherwise, pay was ehh but my ESS contact was terrible with communication.
