As the strain on schools from the pandemic continues, EVSC is looking for some fresh faces to help shape the future generations.
The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is looking for substitute teachers to step in.
Though the pandemic has created a resource strain--
"Certainly this year you've had more people in and out, simply because when people are in close contact situations, that's going to take teachers out of the equation for a set number of days," explained EVSC's Jason Woebkenberg.
--leaders say they've already seen a great response in people willing to step up and step in, and they're looking for more who are called to help teach.
You will need to pass a national background check to sign up, and either already have an Indiana teaching license or apply for a substitute teacher permit if you don't have one.
But with around 1,500 teachers in the system, that means there's always a need for filling in.
EVSC is highlighting not only the scheduling convenience of the role, but the ability to make a difference in the community:
"Substitute teachers play a vital role in the success of our schools. Especially this year, but in any year, they play such an important role. So we've been promoting sub openings. It's a great opportunity for people to have flexible hours, they have flexible days of the week. They can pick their location. And really have a great experience," added Woebkenberg.
