Immediate opening for a long term substitute position and or a full time upcoming math teacher position.

The situation for the full time sub is due to a medical issue with the current math teacher. This teacher is in the building full time, but due to a recent medical incident cannot work with a full group of students in the classroom – she does not require any attention from the subs part, just supervision & management of the classroom with assistance for the students. The teacher works in an office across the hallway from the classroom & sends all of the notes, work, and meets with students individually throughout the day.
