September 22, 2017 – In an effort to recruit more substitute teachers for the district, the Human Resources (HR) department of BCSD hosted and information session in the Board Room of the Education Center on Baker Street.  During the evening, several HR representatives spoke to attendees and covered a wide variety of topics including qualifications, expectations, exams and overall benefits of becoming a substitute teacher.

Current teacher Kelli Limi, also shared her experience of starting at BCSD as a substitute teacher and eventually accepting a full time teaching position at her school.  She discussed her journey, classroom experiences and why she was so happy to have that experience and to be where she is now.

Eunice Curiel, an attendee of the event, said, “I have been talking about going back to school for a long time now, and I wanted to come and see exactly what I needed to do to become a substitute teacher and possibly a full-time teacher.”  She was excited to attend the event and added, “This evening was very informative and I now know what I need to do to move forward.”

There were more than 130 attendees that were present during the two sessions.
