Minnesota Substitute Educator Center

 

The Substitute Educator Center is a central location for interested applicants to learn about substitute teaching pay rates and opportunities in Minnesota’s public schools and districts. 

Substitute teaching in Minnesota requires either a full teaching license, or “short call” substitute teaching license. 
If you have a Bachelor’s degree, or are in an educator preparation program and have completed your student teaching, you can acquire a short license and begin making over $100 per day doing rewarding work at a time of need. More information about how to get a short call license to substitute teach
