According to Dr. Marion Gillis-Olion, Dean of FSU's College of Education, American Education Week is an annual celebration of our schools and provides an opportunity to spotlight the good work that is done by our teachers and other school personnel. She noted that Substitute teachers are a rarely celebrated, but extremely important, group to the school districts and school buildings in which they serve. 

"Substitutes make it possible for teachers to take care of their own health and families without disrupting the learning of the students in their classes," Gillis-Olion said.

School systems are always seeking substitute teachers. If you are interested in joining the ranks of these dedicated workers, contact your local school district Human Resources office. Training for substitute teaching is available at Fayetteville Technical Community College.
