Substitute Teaching and Instructional Assistant

Seattle Public Schools is currently facing a shortage of available substitute teachers and instructional assistants. There are over 100 unfilled positions daily. If you or someone you know is interested in subbing as a teacher, you must have at least a Bachelor’s degree and be willing to work in person. The sub-office and human resources have the ability to provide an emergency certificate (they apply directly with OSPI).

Paraprofessionals and instructional assistants are needed, too (no Bachelor’s degree required).

Please contact Principal Peter Donovan if you are interested in either type of position, and he will provide you with information on the next steps.
