Scoot Education is hiring exceptional substitute teachers across Los Angeles to work with K-12th students at private, public and charter schools. Yes, COVID-19’s impact has led to school closures all over California, but the search for stellar subs continues! 

Like everyone, we’re hoping that schools re-open in May. Use the extra time we have now to get on-boarded with Scoot so you can start teaching and working as soon as possible. This can all be done virtually from the comfort of your home - why wait?!
