I live and Sub in CT. I never understood why New York subs have to be certified. In most other states including Connecticut you just need a bachelors in any field some just an associates or a certain number of college credits. If you are certified in teaching wouldn't you just take a full-time teaching job over subbing?
It seems like you have to jump through hoops and walk through fire to become a sub in New York City!!
"written assessment, oral evaluation and submission of said required forms and documents"
"Proof of completion of EdTraining Center (SubHub) online teacher training program
Proof of completion of the Child Abuse and School Violence Prevention Workshops
Proof of passing results or registration for the New York State Liberal Arts and Science Test" --taken from NYC department of education site.
I know the pay is higher but are they giving you benefits and summer pay for all this? All I had to do was show a copy of my transcript and pass a background check.
