  • LOWER SCHOOL SUBSTITUTE

    The Lower School (grades K-4) is always looking to develop its pool of substitute teachers. The Lower School embraces a child-centered, progressive philosophy of teaching and learning. Students are viewed as active participants in their learning. They learn to read by reading great books and to write by writing and studying the craft of writing. Students engage in hands-on math investigations and in-depth projects. We believe the social and emotional learning goes hand-in-hand with the academic curriculum. We live our mission and core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, compassion, and the pursuit of knowledge. As such, it is important that our substitute teachers embrace these same values and philosophy of teaching. Shorecrest requires that our substitutes have a bachelor's degree. (Experience teaching is a plus.)

Initial Inquiry and Application

Written inquiries are welcome throughout the year. The most effective time to inquire for the following school year, however, is February 15 - May 15. It is during this time period that most openings become known and when the School is most active in its recruitment and hiring. Inquiries should be addressed as follows: Michael A. Murphy, Headmaster, Shorecrest Preparatory School, 5101 First St. NE, St. Petersburg, FL 33703. A letter, preferably with a resume, is sufficient as an initial inquiry.

An Application for Employment may be obtained here. Information on the Application is subject to verification, and applicants are subject to background checks. Letters of recommendation, college transcripts, and other formal documentation are accepted but they are not necessary at this early stage. These will be requested by the School as needed. If you are interested in being placed on a substitute teacher list, please note this on the Application.

Shorecrest's receipt of your completed Application is taken as evidence of your continued interest in employment at the School.

The Application Process

Shorecrest receives a relatively large number of inquiries, and attempts to respond promptly in writing or via e-mail to all candidates. Since some positions require more extensive review, this process may take some time. If a prolonged period of time goes by without communication from the School, do not hesitate to ask about the status of your application. Applications received will be considered for one year. E-mail: employment@shorecrest.org

Salary and Benefits

Shorecrest's salary and benefits are regionally competitive. The salary for a given position is set within the School's overall salary schedule with additional consideration for advanced degrees and supplemental responsibilities.

Shorecrest is committed to the ongoing professional development of its faculty, and significant funding is available to facilitate such continuing education. Whether undertaken during the school year or the summer, continued college course work is eligible for tuition (at current USF tuition rates) and textbook reimbursement provided that the employee earns a minimum "B" in the course.
