HAMILTON, NJ -- Everyone remembers their favorite substitute teacher, a fresh face in their classroom for a few days every so often. Hamilton Township School District is looking for new substitute teachers, school professionals, secretaries, and custodians to step in for those who may be out for a sick day or two or for a few months on an extended leave of absence.
To fill available openings, the Hamilton Township School District is hosting a Substitute Employee Job Fair on October 29 from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the District's Administration Building located at 90 Park Avenue.
"Being a substitute is a wonderful opportunity for people who need flexible schedules. We are looking for individuals who like children, get along with people, and other professionals," said Rebecca Gold, Interim Director of Human Resources for the Hamilton Township School District. Gold noted that there are currently openings for substitutes school professionals in Hamilton Township given the large size of the school district across 23 schools.
The school district is looking for both short-term and long-term substitute employees. All substitutes would need to undergo a criminal background check.
In order to be hired, an applicant to be a short-term day-to-day substitute teacher needs a minimum of 60 college credit and a state or county teaching certificate. Long-term substitute teachers, those employed for more than 20 days, also need to have subject area experience. Substitute secretaries require computer skills and, like substitute custodians, will undergo additional training.
Application packets for school substitutes will be available at the job fair.
