On-going Training for Substitute Teachers – Webinar

By For Administrators, Webinars for Administrators

The importance of on-going training for permanent teachers is well understood, but what about substitute teachers?

With very little interaction with other teachers and lack of professional learning communities to participate in, substitute teachers are often left to learn on their own.

On-going training for these individuals can have a dramatic affect on their ability to manage a classroom and implement lessons left by the permanent teacher.

In this webinar, Geoffrey Smith, director of STEDI.org, will introduce  SubWise™ eMentoring course for substitute teachers.

Online Substitute Teacher Training – Webinar

By For Administrators, Training Options, Webinars for Administrators

Districts and organizations who hire substitute teachers, find the benefit of requiring training prior to employment. This not only save the school district thousands of dollars each year in processing those individuals who are only looking for a quick paycheck, but it prepares those who really want to teach but lack the training that would help them from day one.
