  • Do you enjoy working with young people?  
  • Do you have a four year degree?  
  • Can you pass a background check?  


If you can answer yes to these three questions, you are eligible to apply for a Short Call Substitute License.  This license will allow you to serve as a substitute teacher for grades K-12 in the state of Minnesota.


This course will provide information on the process for applying for a short-call license, along with the things you need to know in order to have a successful experience as a substitute teacher.  We will address topics like classroom management, reading and implementing substitute teaching plans, building rapport with students, and how to handle various classroom situations.


Substitute teaching is a great way to supplement your income, while maintaining flexibility in your schedule.  It is also an opportunity to contribute to the education of students in our community.
