I have been working at Lake Washington School District part-time (More than a year)
Great school district with staff support, technology and classroom training, collaborative and cooperative department support, etc. The kids are wonderful, too!
Substitute teaching needs no further explanation. I work almost every day. I would absolutely love to go full-time again!
Advice to Management
Please visit classrooms, write recommendations, and interview substitutes who have worked all over the district, taken professional learning classes, established report with other educators, and experienced a variety of classrooms. We have not only stamina, experience, and knowledge, but the desire to work and the ability to manage change and students.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lake Washington School District.
This was easy and straight-forward. They only needed a few details, I think they were quite desperate for subs at the time. Once I was accepted into the system, they took photos and put us through training quite rapidly. We were also trained in the IA and para-educator roles at the same time.
