There is an important distinction between a substitute and a “super substitute”. In the absence of a regular school teacher, a substitute has the critically important job of providing continued, comprehensive education to the students in that classroom. While a regular substitute may meet the minimum requirements to supervise that classroom’s students, a super substitute goes above and beyond to be an effective educator and a valuable member of your district team.
Super substitutes are highly qualified, extensively trained, well prepared, and supported by the district they work in. These attributes produce more a confident and capable substitute, as well as more effective learning days for your students. Super substitutes also understand your district’s community and work in your schools more frequently, filling absences more often than regular substitutes
