Substitute Teachers and Substitute Paraprofessionals

Are you the parent of school-age children who might be interested in part-time, as needed, work while your kids are in school?  Perhaps you are an empty-nester interested in rewarding work where you can make some extra spending money?  Or maybe you have always been interested in working with young people in a school setting?  If so, then we just might have the perfect opportunity for you!

The Kettering City Schools employ Substitute Teachers and Substitute Paraprofessionals for a variety of positions within our district.  All Substitute Teachers and Substitute Paraprofessionals must meet state required education levels, based on the job title, and must be able to pass a background check.
