We are looking for Part time Substitute Teachers for the 2023-2024 school year.

Salem Montessori School substitute teachers are an essential part of our community. Former teachers, parents and grandparents often choose to be a substitute teacher. Substituting is also a wonderful way to see if you are interested in teaching in a Montessori environment.

Substitute teachers assist in a classroom with a lead teacher. Substitutes attend a training session and have the support of the lead teacher and the SMS admin team. Substitutes are paid an hourly rate.
