Have you ever thought about substitute teaching?

Jill Vialet, founder of Playworks and d.school Edu Fellow, will be leading a 2-day immersive Substitute Teacher Training workshop at the d.school next Tuesday and Wednesday, January 12-13th from 9-5pm.

Substantial is a new non-profit project dedicated to rethinking how we recruit, train and support substitute teachers in order to maximize that time as an opportunity for teaching and learning. Join us at this inaugural training as we explore best practices in building rapport with students while creating a path for people interested in developing the skills needed to make substitute teaching a rewarding and valuable experience.

This training will be active and hands-on, with opportunities to learn about group and classroom management, design thinking, mindfulness, music, working with special education students, and using games to build rapport. This training will give you an arsenal of tools to use as a substitute teacher.
