Substitute teachers are encouraged to take the SubEvaluation at least monthly.
This self-evaluation tool measures a substitute teacher's effectiveness and performance
in the classroom. It points out individual strengths and weaknesses, and directs a substitute
teacher to the appropriate resources to become more proficient in those areas that may be lacking.
After your first year of substitute teaching, the Advanced Classroom Management and Teaching Strategies online courses,
offered through the STEDI Course online
training system, provides more advanced training to assist you in the classroom.
