Local schools hiring temporary teachers

ROSSFORD (WTOL) - The tough economy has more people looking for work. Your local school district may be hiring.

In tonight's Assignment Education, we'll show you the pros and cons of being a temporary teacher.

"You don't know where you're going to be the next day," Teacher Andy Campbell tells us. He remembers all too well what it's like to be the substitute teacher.

Until a year ago, that was how he paid the bills -- surviving on a daily rate determined by the school system. "Depending on the school system, anywhere from $65 a day up to about $100 a day," he said.

Substitute Jim Christ says, "It's really risky because you can go days without getting a call."

Christ also says its an easy job to get. "You only have to have a bachelor's degree in any area." He adds that it's not always an easy job to do. "A well-disciplined class. You have to gain their respect right away. Others want to push buttons."

To help temporary teachers fit in, the Rossford schools where Campbell works are providing in-service training.

Superintendent Doctor Susan Lang says about 80 subs turned out for the fall session. "The three retired teachers that subbed for us that did the training gave them a bus tour of the district, showed them the different schools, they put together forms, they put together lesson plans."

Rossford Schools is looking for more subs to take on the job. The Rossford schools are holding a second in-service April 1. If you want to sub, and have a degree, you are invited. Rossford, as well as other districts, prefer candidates with education degrees.
