The Substitute Teacher will teach the lesson plan, if available, as outlined by the absent teacher or the Program Coordinator. If lesson plan is not available, the Substitute Teacher may bring prepared lessons that improve students’ ability to speak, understand, read and write the English language, and lessons that provide relevant vocabulary and skills designed to improve quality of life to a diverse set of adult immigrant students. Class instruction should be student-centered, and should reflect student needs and interests, which include employment, family health, access to services, community, civics, etc.

The Substitute teacher will work with the director and administrative staff to ensure successful achievement of curriculum goals and administrative duties (e.g. taking attendance for the class, timesheet). The Substitute Teacher may also be invited to conduct BEST Plus tests when needed.
