People who have had a hankering to teach but who could not because they lack full teaching credentials will have a chance to fulfill their dreams through the Limited Short-Call Substitute program. All that is required is a four-year bachelor’s degree. Resource Training and Solutions, now based in Sartell, will host a two-day program, Dec. 9-10, to prepare individuals on how to apply to become short-term substitute teachers.
Under Minnesota law, limited short-call substitute teachers’ licenses are granted only if teachers who hold regular teaching licenses are not available or if a district is experiencing a hardship in securing an adequate number of licensed teachers. Short-term substitute teaching licenses are issued for up to two years.
Training will cover such topics as a substitute teacher’s role in the classroom and district, basics of classroom management and instruction, basics of child development and communication skills.
To register for the training, call Deb Thomes at Resource Training and Solutions at 320-255-3236 or toll-free at 1-888-447-7032. Anyone interested can also visit its website at www.resourcetraining.com.
