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.
Scoot Interview Process
Review your application
We’ll review your application and if we find you’re a good match we’ll contact you. When we review your resume, we're evaluating against several factors:
- What kind of teaching experience do they have?
- Do they hold a bachelor's degree?
- Do they hold an emergency 30 day permit?
- Do they have a teaching credential?
- Have they taken the CBEST exam?
- Do they have a clean, professional and grammatically correct resume?
- Do they exemplify the character of an elite Scoot substitute teacher?
- If they don't have classroom experience, has this person worked with children before (ie: tutoring, summer camp, sports)?
We'll reach out to you and ask you a few questions regarding your application, backround and desire to work with Scoot.
During the interview, we’ll ask you about your teaching style and assess your classroom management skills. We’ll get to know your unique needs and geographical preferences. We’re interested in learning about you, as a person, and not just the substitute!
Expect your interview to be both professional and fun :)
If all goes well, you’ll be offered the position and we’ll begin the on-boarding process of welcoming you as a Scoot Substitute!
