Substitute Teachers

Substitute Teachers are an integral part of the educational process in Caldwell School District. It is critical that students have an effective teacher every day. When the regular teacher is absent, guest teachers play a significant role in maintaining a stable classroom. Substitute teaching can be a rewarding job, and often assists aspiring teachers in gaining the experience needed to lead their own classroom. It also provides a flexible job where you determine the days you will work.
