Substitute Teaching Opportunity

Parents and guardians,

We have an opportunity that we would like to offer you.  Along with school districts across the nation, we continue to experience a substitute teacher shortage.  We are reaching out to our parents and community to hopefully increase the substitute teacher pool for the foreseeable future.

The qualifications for substitute teaching are for the person to have a high school diploma and enjoy working with students.  The substitute is supplied with lesson plans for the day by the classroom teacher.  The daily rate of pay for the substitute teacher is $80.  Substitute teachers can indicate what school(s) they prefer, and the day(s) of the week they are available.

If you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher please apply online at http://www.pfsd.com/Content/186 or call Roberta Becker or Dawna Shepard at 208-773-1658
