Dear Prospective Substitute Teacher,
Welcome to Hillsborough! Becoming a substitute teacher is a great way
to get yourself involved in the school community as well as the most realistic “proving
ground” for anyone who may be looking for full-time employment someday. Many of our current employees first worked as
substitutes and are now enjoying contracted employment in the high-achieving
and high-performing school district that Hillsborough indeed is!
Whether you are looking for that “proving
ground” leading to potential full time employment some day or if you are simply
interested in the flexibility and experiences in being a day-to-day substitute,
you, as a substitute teacher, are one of the most vital parts of our school
system. It would be extremely difficult
for us to operate our school on a satisfactory basis without all persons such as yourself serving as substitute
teachers. All schools wish to extend to
you a most cordial welcome as a substitute teacher. Your daily work is an
important contribution to the instructional program of our schools.
The first step in becoming a
substitute teacher is to complete the paperwork in the pdf document on this
page. All of this paperwork, including the
criminal history check, fingerprinting, and getting your substitute certificate
must be completed before you apply on line or contact the Human Resources
office to be interviewed. Should you
have any questions about the paperwork, please contact Pinky Nielsen at (908) 431-6600
x 2999. However, there is a cover sheet
which hopefully can answer most of your questions.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
