At Scoot, our substitute teachers believe in the value of an exceptional education. We have a thorough hiring process and we pride ourselves in providing market-leading pay and W-2 employment.

Scoot substitute teachers bring a high level of competency, aptitude for common sense, and professional attitude to the classroom.
They understand the complexities associated with filling in for the day and take great pride in providing a consistent, valuable day of learning when the regular teacher is away.

They are professional (especially in high-stress situations), reliable, flexible, and eager to quickly build rapport with students, staff, and the school community.

Above all, our substitute teachers understand that they are an extension of Scoot and strive to represent Scoot with the utmost integrity knowing they are part of an elite group of educators.
