Canyons District Seeking Substitutes for the Coming School Year

Canyons is committed to keeping students engaged in learning while also being mindful of the health and wellness issues presented by COVID-19. To aid in this effort — and to support teachers who may need to stay home because of health or personal reasons — a robust list of substitute teachers is needed for the school year.   

Licensed substitute teachers have the opportunity make up to $129 per day. This is a rewarding opportunity to make money and help some of Utah’s finest students excel in school, according to the substitutes who regularly step in to help teachers when they need a day away from the classroom for health or personal reasons.  

Canyons District recognizes the uniqueness of the upcoming year as the novel coronavirus continues to change the way we all work and learn.  Canyons Human Resources Administrator Sally Sansom says the District will work tirelessly to support those who indicate they would like to be substitute teachers. 

Potential substitutes are assured that CSD’s Back-to-School Action Plan, which was developed with guidance from the Utah governor’s office and the Utah State Board of Education, calls for extensive cleaning procedures and Personal Protective Equipment. The District is investing nearly $1 million in cleaning supplies and PPE for the coming year. 

Safety equipment such as face coverings will be available for substitutes.  

Benefits of becoming a substitute teacher are valuable transferable skills, practical experience in a variety of settings, and competitive pay — not to mention making a difference in a lives of students and the community, Sansom says. 

Regular classroom substitutes must have a minimum of 48 college credits and must be at least 20 years old to qualify.

New substitutes, except those with a standard teacher license or those who are retired teachers, must also complete the STEDi Training Course

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
