Substitute Teacher (part-time)

DePaul School is looking to fill an immediate need for a part-time substitute teacher.  Candidates must have current PA certifications as a Teacher of the Deaf or other relevant certifications (Elementary Teaching certifications).

Interested applications should send their resume and cover letter to the school principal, Mary Jo Maynard at mjmac@depaulhearingandspeech.org.


Substitute Teaching Assistant (part-time)

We are in need of a substitute teaching assistant to help when people are out. This person would assume the role of a TEACHING ASSISTANT – not a teacher.   We would provide training to help this individual learn the assistant position and gain understanding of the philosophy of the school.    This person does not need a certification to work as a sub on this level but would, of course, require all three levels of clearances for PA criminal/child abuse history.
