Substitute Professional Development: What Does this Look Like in the Future for our Guest Teachers?

March 21, 2024 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CST

Jamie West, Non-Instructional Recruitment Partner with Lake County Schools will be presenting. 

We all share a common goal: to provide equal opportunities for our students to receive the best education they can during their school years. However, substitute teachers don't usually feel like they fit into this goal. Even if they do, they might not feel comfortable. At Lake County Schools, I got the chance to create a substitute program from scratch. By doing so, I was able to survey our substitute teachers and not just read their feedback but also listen to it carefully. I have improved our program to better suit their needs and help them become better substitutes for our students.

Recently, I designed a PD program for our subs called Substitute Teacher Boot Camp. What were my goals in doing so, and how did I achieve them? This webinar will cover the three significant aspects I wanted to incorporate into a professional development program for our substitutes.

5 Strategies for Running an Effective Substitute Teacher Program 

March 21, 2024 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CST

John Meekins, Strategic Sales Manager and Caroline Clayton, Client Services Lead with Kelly Education will be presenting. 

Filling last-minute absences at 5:30 a.m. is the new normal for today's administrators. According to the Institute of Education Sciences, 61% of public schools report that it’s much more difficult to find substitute teachers compared to three years ago—and the continued teacher vacancy crisis is only making things worse. This leaves many districts in a state of nonstop recruiting for substitute teachers. In this webinar, Kelly Education—the nation’s largest provider of substitute teachers in the United States —will cover five key strategies for running an effective substitute teacher program that keeps classrooms fully staffed and students learning.

This webinar is sponsored by Kelly Education and is free for AASPA Members and NonMembers.

From Conflict to Collaboration - Part 1

March 26, 2024 | 11:00am - 12:00pm CST

Dr. Robert Feirsen, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, Manhattanville College and  Dr. Seth Weitzman, Senior Lecturer of Educational leadership, Mercy University will be presenting. 

Co-authors of From Conflict to Collaboration: A School Leader's Guide to Unleashing Conflict's Problem Solving Power are excited to present a two-part webinar on March 26 and April 30.  This series will offer practical strategies for navigating a challenge that has grown in magnitude and elevated stress levels of school leaders. The responsibility to manage conflict is part of a human resource administrator's job description, yet little to no training is typically provided. The presenters maintain that, when skillfully channeled, conflict actually creates beneficial opportunities to address a school's substantive issues. 

Part 1 will present causes and consequences of conflict in schools, and share strategies that enhance school leaders' "conflict agility" skills.

This webinar is provided FREE for AASPA members and $25 for nonmembers.
