MOESC Now Hiring Substitutes for 2022/2023 School Year

17 Aug , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

As the start of the school year approaches, the need for substitute teachers is great. Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center is looking for substitute teachers to work in a number of area school districts. 

Steve Earnest, Mid-Ohio ESC Executive Director, said substitute teachers play a vital role in the education of our children. “When a substitute teacher can’t be found, schools will often ask full-time teachers to give up their planning hour in order to fill in. This has a negative effect on the teacher’s ability to plan their class effectively, ultimately affecting students as well. Substitute teachers step in and lighten that load while ensuring that each student receives quality instruction while their formal teacher is away.”

HB 583 allows districts the flexibility to use substitute teachers with either an associate degree or high school diploma.

“In class at Ohio State Mansfield, as I was learning this different approach on how to teach math to young kids, I thought ‘Why didn’t I know this as a kid?’ When I was a kid I was never good at math,” said Sayre. “This approach would have helped me.” More…
