At Scoot, our substitute teachers believe in the value of an exceptional education. We have a thorough hiring process and we pride ourselves in providing market-leading pay and W-2 employment.

Scoot substitute teachers bring a high level of competency, aptitude for common sense, and professional attitude to the classroom.
They understand the complexities associated with filling in for the day and take great pride in providing a consistent, valuable day of learning when the regular teacher is away.

They are professional (especially in high-stress situations), reliable, flexible, and eager to quickly build rapport with students, staff, and the school community.

Above all, our substitute teachers understand that they are an extension of Scoot and strive to represent Scoot with the utmost integrity knowing they are part of an elite group of educators.

scoot interview process

Review your application

We’ll review your application and if we find you’re a good match we’ll contact you. When we review your resume, we’re evaluating against several factors:

  • What kind of teaching experience do theyhave?
  • Do they hold a bachelor’s degree?
  • Do they have a clean, professional, and grammatically correct resume?
  • Do they exemplify the character of an elite Scoot substitute teacher?
  • If they don’t have classroom experience, has this person worked with children before (ie: tutoring, summer camp, sports)?

Depending on the state, we’ll also check to see if you have mandatory substitute certifications or other supplemental state-issued teaching credentials.

Phone Interview

We’ll reach out to you and ask you a few questions regarding your application, background, and desire to work with Scoot.

This is just a quick 10-15 minute call.
