As a substitute you will work all over the Bay Area. The staff at Swing are helpful and on top of there game. The schools you will work for are often underprepared, and generally don't attempt to make you part of the team. Very structured classrooms at many of the schools so be prepared for an approach to education that was not the norm in CA while many of us adults were in school. Swing makes every attempt to help you out though!
good administration that tends to every need and question. Flexible schedule
Schools are not always very helpful, and are not exactly welcoming and accommodating to people who are new on their premises.
