It is incumbent upon each teacher to keep their certification current and to ensure that they are meeting the requirements for professional development. The links on this page will provide you with information from NYSED regarding certification and professional development.
Substitute teaching is a good way for teachers to get experience while looking for full time employment. If you are interested, please see the attached link, fill out the application and return it to the Personnel Office.
