Substitute Teaching

Substitute Teaching

At Clear Creek Independent School District, we make every effort to staff our classrooms with professionals and paraprofessionals of outstanding ability and dedication.

It is reassuring to know that when a classroom teacher or staff member must be absent, there is an equally dedicated substitute implementing the instructional program—You.

As a substitute, we know you possess many talents—versatility, flexibility, and selflessness to name a few. As you consider applying to be a substitute at CCISD trust that you will feel a real sense of satisfaction as you view the contributions you make to the students and programs of our District. We appreciate that you are there when you need you the most.

"My favorite part of this job is seeing the light come on. Whether I am in a class for a day or a month, I find it fulfilling when I am able to help a child gain understanding and grow as a learner.''

- Donada Fortner, Long-Term Substitute

We accept applications for teacher and paraprofessional/aide substitutes throughout the school year. We encourage you to fill out an application based on your primary interest (either Teacher or Paraprofessional/Aide).
