DID YOU KNOW?... statistics indicate that one full year of instruction in every student's kindergarten through twelfth grade education will be provided by a guest (substitute) teacher.  Substitute teachers play a critical role in maintaining the continuity of instruction for students, and D60 is always looking for qualified and interested candidates.

Pueblo School District 60 is always looking for more certified teacher subs. Substitutes may apply online.  Applications must include:

  • Transcripts confirming BA degree or better, or a letter of acceptance into an education program at an accredited college or university;

  • Three (3) letters of recommendation in regards to working with children/youth;

  • Current Colorado Teaching License or 1, 3, or 5 year Substitute Authorization

Once your application has been evaluated and approved, an appointment will be scheduled to complete necessary paperwork in the Human Resources Office. At that time you will receive information regarding our automated substitute calling system.

Below are a few tips to help you be successful at Substitute Teaching:

     - Arrive on time        - Check in with the office when you arrive   - Be sure to have your "Job Number"

     - It is SO important that you follow the lesson plans that have been left by the teacher

     - Be polite, helpful, and courteous to students and staff       - Manage classroom behavior

     - Keep students busy and involved                             - Greet students at the door when they arrive

     - Dress Professionally        - Do NOT use your cell phone during class time!             - Have a positive attitude
