Job Description

The Grand Isle Supervisory Union and its member districts of Alburgh, South Hero, and the Champlain Islands Unified Union School Districts are seeking full time, building based substitute teachers for the 2021-2022 school year with potential for future employment beyond this school year. This is a full time position that offers a regular schedule (not on-call) and benefits.
The GISU and its member districts work to ensure all members of the learning community are curious, creative, courageous, and capable of pursuing their aspirations in a diverse and ever-changing world. The GISU Schools specialize in educating grades K-6/K-8. We are proud that our schools maintain impassioned faculty, personalized beliefs about success, and a caring, safe school culture.
Yet, even the most dedicated teachers and staff need a sick day. When a planned or unplanned absence keeps our staff away from the classroom, a substitute teacher is there to fill in. A building based substitute is an integral part of the school community and will fill a variety of roles within the school building to provide coverage for planned and unplanned absences.
There are several ways to apply: online applications at schoolspring.com will be accepted or mail to:

Job Description
Substitutes have fulfilled state requirements and registered with the local department of education before applying for the job. For many, substituting provides the teaching experience needed as they pursue their master’s degree in education. Others simply enjoy being in the educational field without being tied down to a single subject/classroom.
In the Grand Isle Supervisory Union, our teachers have a profound impact on students’ lives. When they have planned or unplanned absences, we rely on skilled substitutes to fill in. We are currently looking for engaging, reliable substitute teachers to cover classes at all levels, from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. In this position, you will take over for full-time teachers in their absence, carrying out their lesson plans and ensuring students have a fulfilling classroom experience. You may also be asked to support the school community in regular support areas on days/times you are not subbing, for example covering duties like recess or lunch supervision. The ideal candidates will have prior substitute-teaching experience and the ability to lead the class in an orderly fashion.
Objectives of this Role
Arrive at school every day with a flexible mindset
Execute lesson plans consistent with the teacher’s guidelines, and school curriculum
