MONROE, CT — Connecticut has a shortage of substitute teachers at a time when school districts face staffing issues amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Connecticut State Department of Education recently revised requirements to allow those with a minimum of a high school diploma to apply, rather than a bachelor’s degree.
Monroe public schools is hosting a virtual substitute teacher job fair today (Thursday), which will be held via Zoom from 1 to 3 p.m. Click here for the link. The meeting I.D. is 834 0986 2224 and the passcode is 467530.
The district asks all candidates to attend the fair for the entire duration as important information will be shared at the start of the meeting. Staff will be available to assist and to answer any questions.
All candidates should have a download of their resume and have college transcripts information.
Substitute teachers in Monroe earn $95 per day and choose the days, schools and/or grades they are available to teach.
