Becoming a Substitute Teacher at Pine Lake

Substitute teachers serve an essential role in the operation of Pine Lake Preparatory. As Academic Partners are pulled from the classroom due to illnesses, bereavement, professional development or personal matters, it is important that we have reliable and effective substitute teachers in place to make sure classroom instruction and student engagement continues during their absence. Serving as a substitute teacher is also a great way to sharpen your teaching skills, help you get to know more about PLP and its staff, and can also lead to professional teaching positions if you hold a valid North Carolina teaching license.
