Our Services - Schools


As a staffing firm focused exclusively on education, The Education Team understands what is required of teachers. Our recruiters know what to look for in a substitute teacher and have often been teachers themselves.

Education Team recruiters are fully trained on all state credentials and requirements and all of our substitute teachers undergo rigorous screening and evaluation before being hired. We pride ourselves in offering highly qualified professionals. While the details vary from state to state, our teachers always meet or exceed state requirements and we have the documentation to prove it.

We provide substitutes for half-day assignments or long-term vacancies. Same day, last minute requests are no problem for us, as we have a high fill rate with minimal cancelations. We bill by the hour and you only pay for the hours that the substitute is actually at your school. Call 855-898-2929 now to fill out a registration form and get our current hourly rates. Our call center is open from 6AM to 7PM, Monday through Friday.

Our substitute teachers are employees of The Education Team, and we handle everything including payroll processing, payroll taxes, benefit costs, workers compensation insurance, liability insurance, and all related human resources functions. Using our services is easy, simply request a sub either online, over the phone or by email and approve the sub’s timecard at the end of the day. We handle everything else.

We can also help you fill your permanent positions. If you are impressed by one of our substitutes you can hire them into a permanent position for a small one-time placement fee.
