We can’t wait for you to join the ESS family!

Becoming a substitute is an exciting and rewarding way to give back to your community and make a difference in the lives of students.

Whether you’re a recent college graduate looking to work your way into a full-time teaching position, a retired teacher interested in getting back into the classroom, or anyone looking to make a positive contribution to the development of children, ESS has a place for you.

We offer excellent employee perks, including health benefits, training, support, weekly pay, 401(k), bonus opportunities, award programs, and more. Plus, working as a substitute is extremely flexible – when, where, and how often you work is entirely up to you. To work as a substitute in Littleton Public Schools, you must pass all criminal background checks and meet the education requirements
