The Substitute teacher is responsible for managing an assigned classroom by carrying out the appropriate learning activities and following the lesson plan developed by the classroom teacher of record, to ensure student learning activities and experiences remain uninterrupted during the teacher’s absence. By accepting a substitute assignment in one of our schools, you should consider yourself a teacher for that particular classroom, along with the responsibility that comes with such teaching assignment.
