There has been a lot going on in the Buffalo Schools lately, both inside and outside the classroom. From Bennett High School winning the New York State football championship to significant changes and concerns with how transportation has been in the district, the BPS is thriving in some areas and in desperate need of change in others.
There are many places within Western New York's largest school system where some additional assistance is needed, one of the areas that the district has identified they need help in is inside the classroom.
The Buffalo Public Schools are looking to hire several substitute teachers to help fill soem temporary vacancies in all sorts of educational areas.
Officials from the Buffalo Schools are going to be open interviews on Saturday, January 28, 2023, and you're not required to have your New York State Teacher Certification to be a substitute teacher.
A substitute teacher is responsible for providing instruction, managing the classroom environment, and promoting student learning in the absence of the regular classroom teacher. Substitute teachers must implement teacher lesson plans, assign student class work and homework, maintain classroom control and discipline.
