Notice of Job Opportunity
Reserve Teachers

Eden Prairie Schools is seeking applicants for Reserve Teacher at elementary, middle and high school locations.  Reserve teachers play an important role in the education of all students by ensuring each student continues to receive high quality education when the regular classroom teacher is not able to be present.  Please consider joining the Eden Prairie Schools team in our Reserve Teacher program.

Applicants will need a Bachelor’s degree to apply, but you do not need to hold a current teaching license.  Instead, with a Bachelor’s degree, you are eligible to apply for a Short Call or Limited Short Call Substitute Teacher license issued by PELSB, the Minnesota teacher licensing standards board.  So if you hold a Bachelor’s degree and enjoy teaching and helping students learn, please consider joining our district as a Substitute Teacher.
