Substitute Teaching

Substituting is a great way to gain experience working in a school and to get to know a school community. If you are looking for a job, substituting can also be a good way to get yourself into a school and be at the top of the list for consideration when a teaching position does open up.


Each school system has its own requirements for substitute teachers (high school diploma, bachelor’s degree, teaching certification).  To find out about how to substitute in a particular system, go to that system’s website.

You can also go to Teach Georgia and do a job title search on “substitute teacher.”


You must contact each private school individually about becoming a substitute. You can also search on the following sites:
