My advice to any sub is this look at your credentials if you only have college credits or none stay as a sub you will make more than becoming permanent . If you do decide to become permanent take advantage of getting your degree for free while working as a sub or a permanent para. The DOE gives release time for those who are getting their bachelor degree for the first time. It’s all on how you play your cards right. This position does not pay much it’s best to either get a degree that high in demand or work another job to make ends meet.

Most often, we are introduced to schools via educational preparation and certification programs. It is left up to the individual to network, often times we are offered employment. Substitute work can also gain entry to the desired school for employment. Show principals what you are made of!. The interview processes usually consist of a lesson plan, a lesson done, and a few answered questions.
