Substitute Teacher Aides in The Experiential School of Tampa Bay are responsible for assisting in the implementation of the daily program under the direction of the teacher.
The Experiential School (ages 3-5) is looking to develop its pool of substitute teachers. The Experiential School believes in a child-centered, progressive philosophy of teaching and learning that values children’s interests, ideas, strengths and uniqueness. Experiential School students are capable, curious, active and engaged thinkers and doers who learn through inquiry, exploration, discovery and play. In our learning community, Alpha and Junior Kindergarten students learn through interactions with people, environments, materials and experiences that are student-directed and teacher-guided. As such, it is important that our substitute teachers embrace these same values and philosophy of teaching.
Shorecrest prefers that our substitutes have a bachelor's degree. Experience teaching 3, 4, and 5-year old children is beneficial.
