Substitute Teacher Ultimate Guide is more than a Survival Kit. It's everything you need to be a successful sub; with tons of tips, printables, teacher scripts, and lessons in every curriculum area.

You’ll get expert advice on subbing; from job interviews to really cool lessons, mastering technology to behavior management, so you’ll be calm and confident in the classroom.

Compiled by a long-term teacher who has observed hundreds of subs and teachers, and who also subbed for three years before teaching full-time, this is a detailed account of what to bring, do, and say when you sub.


This Kit is also perfect for...

Regular teachers--as a refresher course for yourself, or to set up a comprehensive sub binder for the substitute teacher on days you are absent. The seasonal crafts will perk up every month, and the generic lessons will last you a full year.  You will return from your absence to a calm and orderly classroom.
