Substitute Teacher Academy continued
The State of Illinois offers substitute teacher certification to those with a bachelor’s degree in any subject. Instruction on how to apply for the certificate is also included in the presentation. The academy provides ideas and activities subs can adapt and use in any school and any grade
While no special skills are required to get a substitute teacher certificate, many school districts encourage their subs, whether certified teachers or not, to take special substitute teacher workshops, such as this one, to familiarize themselves with the process and pitfalls of subbing.
Participants most hold a bachelor’s degree and register by February 15. Registration is limited to 40 participants. The $50 registration fee includes lunch and materials.
The Substitute Teacher Academy will be held in the Hall of Honors and is sponsored by the Metropolitan Institute of Leadership in Education (MILE) and the College of Education. For more information and to register, call 708.534.4024.
