Welcome Debra,
I can't advise you on substituting but it has been discussed in the
past. Varying replies, with some leaving detailed lesson plans and
others not. You can look in the archives.

This is something I am probably going to start doing soon too. I
plan to advertise in the parent's magazine that you can pick up
anywhere for free. They are local papers which tell you a variety of
info. Recreation, private schools, camps etc. I also am going to
post a few flyers at places which I have worked such as the
preschool I was at. I've had offers to teach private lessons and
that is a good place for contacts. It is also a church and they have
a bulletin board. The great thing about that is you can determine
the age and who you want to teach and how many. I would suggest the
YMCA or other rec. center bulletin boards and if you have any
friends already teaching they may know of local people in need who
are not in a conventional school.
