Substitute Teacher

Tri-County Substitute Teacher Consortium
(Colusa, Sutter and Yuba Counties)

Substitute teaching is an important educational component in our programs and schools.  Principals, teachers, parents, and students value a skilled substitute teacher.  Research shows that a student spends over one full year with a substitute teacher by the time he/she graduates from high school.  Substitute teachers can have a significant, positive impact on the quality of education while the permanent teacher is away. Successful teachers are those who have either consciously, or sub-consciously, developed the skills that make them effective in the classroom.  In other words, by learning certain skills, techniques, and methods you can be a successful teacher.  With these skills in your repertoire, you will be in high demand!
