Need for Substitute Teachers

Parents: If you are willing to help us, we do have a real need for substitute teachers. So far this year, we have had many sub requests go unfilled.

So that you are aware, subs are able to choose the location(s) where they are willing to sub - meaning if you only want to sub for MJHS you can. You are also able to choose your days of availability, with no minimum commitment per month. If you are willing to apply to be a substitute teacher, please visit the Utah Kelly Educational Staffing webpage at http://www.kesutah.appone.com or call our awesome secretary, Theresa Carey here at MJHS to get more information about helping us out as a substitute teacher. Thanks,Nate
