About Us

Teachers On Call has been making a difference in schools and centers since 1999. We provide substitute education professionals to over 70 school districts in Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as over 150 charter schools and early child care centers in the Twin Cities metro area.  We partner with Frontline Technologies to deliver the power of Aesop with the substitute staffing solutions of Teachers On Call. We use our knowledge and expertise to connect qualified substitutes with the schools that need them, and we provide ongoing and personalized support for all parties.

Substitutes On Call was formed as a division of Teachers On Call in 2014, to offer substitute staffing solutions in Arizona. The successful model that has been serving Teachers On Call’s schools for so many years, will now make that same difference in Arizona schools.


Mission Statement: Teachers On Call is dedicated to providing excellent customer service and finding quality substitutes in a timely manner who will be an asset to our schools or centers, to ensure the educational needs of students are being met.
