Substitute Opportunities

PLEASE NOTE: The next round of substitute hiring is expected to begin in late November. For more information about substitute opportunities, please call the Employee Connect hotline at 901-416-5304.

Many applicants and teacher candidate pool members who do not secure a position with Shelby County Schools but want to gain valuable teaching experience are encouraged to pursue substitute opportunities with our district. 

SCS typically accepts application for the substitute teacher pool quarterly, though SCS may accept applications during other months on an as-needed basis. Teach Memphis will add details about the process to the website as information becomes available.
