Substitute Teacher

Interested in Substitute Teaching?

So you’re interested in becoming a substitute teacher with Murfreesboro City Schools… great news! We are constantly looking for qualified and dedicated individuals to add to our substitute teaching team.

Murfreesboro City Schools hires all of our substitute teachers in house, meaning we do not use an outside service to hire or manage our subs. We feel that this gives our substitute teachers an opportunity to train and learn within the system before the real work begins!

Steps to become a substitute teacher:

Step 1: Apply online. Application information can be found by clicking “Apply Now” at the top right of the webpage.

Step 2: Interview. Human Resources reviews all applications – if you are deemed qualified, you will receive an invitation to interview.

Step 3: New Hire Processing. If your interview goes well, you will then be sent instructions to complete your new hire onboarding. This will include fingerprinting, online paperwork, training videos, and an in-person orientation.

Step 4: Time to sub! Once your new hire processing is complete, you can start subbing!

If you have any specific questions, please contact Andrea Rumley in Human Resources via email (Email Andrea Rumley) or 615-893-2313.
