In CT you must have a bachelor's degree to sub. I have found a couple of
people who are working on their MA in art ed...they love the experience and
make great subs. I can call and request them for my job. I have their home
numbers...and before I call in the job, I always call them to see if they are
free first. We also have a permenant sub...but the perm. sub we had last
year did not like subbing for art (and she was a friend of mine!~!!) so
rather than have someone in there who was uninterested...I always just booked
my own sub. The perm. sub has a job no matter what...if she/he is not
assigned...then they work with special ed.
We raised sub pay to $100 a day...but still have problems getting subs. We
have about 700 teachers in our district....so on any given day.....and on
days were people go out for professional workshops...good grief!
