CEP Substitute

CEP Substitute

Education for Change (EFC) is looking for dynamic and visionary teachers who will engage students, parents, and other members of our learning community to ensure high student achievement.  The CEP Substitute Teacher works every day throughout the school year to ensure that our six schools in East Oakland have regular access to quality instructional support.  They will be assigned by the site administrators, based on need.  They perform all duties of a classroom teacher on a day-to-day basis to cover teacher absences, professional development, grade level meetings, and evaluation and coaching conferences. They may also be assigned to support the instructional program, including materials preparation and clerical tasks.
