Do you love working with kids? Are you looking to build on your experience in the field of academics? Do you have some extra time you could dedicate to students? If you answered Yes to these questions, you might want to consider being a substitute teacher.

With summer on the wane, schools are seeking qualified subs for the upcoming year. While rules differ at each school district, many require no special accreditation.

According to the following note on the New Hartford Central School Facebook page, your chance to make an impact and get your foot in the door for the 2017-2018 school year is coming up later in August:

New Hartford Central School will hold a Substitute Teacher Recruitment Day on August 24, 2017. Applicants must hold a four-year degree or teaching certification to apply. Please contact Mrs. Denise Owens at 315-624-1274 to schedule an interview and apply online at by August 17, 2017.

Maybe this is your true calling. Or maybe it would just be a good experience. History has examples of some significant substitute teachers. World-famous physicist Albert Einstein was a sub for two years in Switzerland. And, before he was front and center in the famous Scopes Monkey Trial, John Scopes was in front of a classroom as a substitute biology teacher with the audacity to suggest the concept of evolution to his students.

Maybe you're next. Polish up that resume and those dress shoes, and get ready to make a good impression.
