Read more about Esther, our awesome March sub of the month!
How long have you been a substitute teacher?
I taught 7th-12th English and Middle School Math for 13 years!
Why did you choose education as a career?
Though education was my fourth career, it has always been my passion. Teaching elementary school, kindergarten to fourth grade, has also been an awesome experience. I enjoy the little darlings.
What is your fondest memory of a substitute teacher?
As a professional teacher and student, I am always learning more and more so that I can share the knowledge and life's experiences with my children.
Why is being a substitute teacher important?
After retiring from the School District of Philadelphia in 2014, my husband and I took time to relax and travel, but I was missing teaching. My experience at Educators on Call since December 2018, has given me the opportunity to return to the classroom and has exposed me to teaching subjects outside of my certified area. Every time I get the opportunity to do so, I accept the challenge with joy. I may have to do a little research on a subject to prepare for a class, but I don't mind. I don't want the students to miss a beat!
Would you like to share anything else?
Thank you again, Educators on Call, for this honor. Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father and, from the Lord Jesus Christ.
