School District In Dire Need of Subs

In a letter addressed to the families of Cheatham County students, ESS, the company that manages the district's substitute employee program, answers questions and provides details about becoming a substitute teacher within the county's schools.

As you are all aware, we are struggling with a tremendous shortage of substitute teachers. It is imperative that we properly and safely staff our schools each day and becoming a substitute teacher is a HUGE way to help! Check out these FAQ’s on subbing in Cheatham County:

  1. I have another job. Can I still sub? YES! We only ask our subs to work 4 days per month, anything helps!

  2. Can I sub at my child’s school? OF COURSE!

  3. Can I just work with one grade group? YES! You are able to choose what assignments you take. You can stick with elementary grades, only sub at high schools, or change it up everyday. You are in charge of your schedule 😊

  4. I’ve never taught. Is training provided? Yes. ESS is a nationwide company that has experience staffing thousands of subs in school districts across the country. Our team has compiled proven teaching strategies and techniques that we provide training on prior to entering the classroom. Additionally, we are here every step of the way to assist you with any questions.
