Norwin Substitute Teacher Academy

Did You Know ...
...that you can become a Norwin substitute teacher, which now pays $120 per day, without a teaching degree?
Norwin School District highly values its substitute teachers and considers them to be an integral part of the overall educational program.

To prepare more substitute teachers to enter the classroom, the School District has developed a FREE Norwin Substitute Teacher Academy to be held March 10 & 11, 2021. This will train non-certified teachers to become emergency-certified substitutes who can work immediately at Norwin School District earning the newly increased rate of $120 per day.
