Substitute Teachers Needed

FROM RHONDA STEINBERG We are desperately looking for parents who are interested in becoming a substitute teacher. This year our teachers are receiving more professional development than ever before. The good news is that your children are benefiting from the advanced knowledge that our staff is obtaining. The bad news is that we have been running out of substitutes on a daily basis, forcing some teachers to lose out on important information because we are unable to provide classroom coverage.

If you are interested and hold a B.A. or a B.S. degree please email rsteinberg@mbusd.org for the steps to take to obtain your substitute credential. We would love to have you join our staff and work with the best students on the planet in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Thanks for considering!
