We require individuals not holding a teaching license to take the SubSkills course and pass with an 85% composite score.

Don’t worry – you can do this! The course was written specifically for those not holding a teaching license and who desire to influence the lives of students.

You will learn to:

  • Manage a classroom and avoid common errors most substitute teachers make
  • Teach with power, even if you don’t have a teaching degree and don’t know the material
  • Foster respect from students
  • Learn strategies to work with students with special needs
  • Implement activities when students finish early or when there are still five minutes left in the period

SubSkills contains engaging videos, downloads, examples, and teaching strategies for you to study and learn. The course can be accessed at any time and you can log out and return later to exactly where you left off in a lesson.

We look forward to having you in our classrooms.
