National Substitute Teachers of the Year - Congratulations to our Winners!

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our National Substitute Teachers of the Year in honor of National Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week. This week is about honoring great education professionals in our community and in our schools!

Congratulations to our winners!

Minnesota Division:

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Minnesota Substitute, Sue. Sue is our Red Wing Rockstar! In addition to working as often as she can, Sue keeps the Teachers On Call staff smiling with stories from the classroom, and even the occasional selfie. She enjoys working at the Middle and High School levels, and helps to ensure that these schools always have the necessary coverage. She might even substitute  for the swimming pool if you ask her nicely! Sue is a pleasure to work with, no matter the circumstance. We couldn’t ask for a more pleasant, engaged employee, and she has certainly earned this honor with all of her continued hard work and dedication!

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Minnesota Substitute, Marilyn. What can we say about Marilyn? She thinks she’s Teachers On Call’s number one fan, and little does she know, we appreciate her just as much. Between physical education at Fairmont Elementary, Special Education at the Jr/Sr High School, and her infamous bird call, Marilyn keeps both staff and students on their toes, and keeps classes running smoothly when primary educators must be away. Marilyn helps us to recruit and train new substitutes in her area, by giving new substitutes a glimpse of what a career with Teachers On Call really looks like, and confidently shares her own experiences branching out into different age levels and subject areas on the job. She is the epitome of professionalism and grace, and we’re lucky to call her one of our own!

Charter Division: 

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Charter Substitute, Sherri. Sheri is an outstanding substitute! She loves teaching and working with all age groups in our schools and early child care centers.  Sheri’s passion for teaching is noticed by both the schools and the children she works with on a daily basis. While balancing her work load throughout our different locations, she also finds time to volunteer on Friday mornings.  Sheri is very flexible when it comes to scheduling and is willing to accept positions last minute.  Her communication is outstanding both with students and staff, and at the end of her shifts, the feedback she leaves teachers is very helpful.  Sheri is a top notch employee, and her talent for teaching comes from her strong mind, big heart and all her compassion she demonstrates to the students she works.  If anyone deserves to be recognized for substitute appreciation week, it’s Sheri.  Not only do we thank you, but the school staff, students, and parents do as well!

Early Child Care Division: 

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Early Child Care Substitute, Starla. Starla has been a superb substitute for Teachers On Call! We are extremely grateful to have such a dedicated employee that is great at what she does. Her leadership skills shine at the child care centers, and she tops the most requested substitute list. Teachers On Call and child care centers alike, really enjoy working with Starla because she is a very kind, caring, and respectful to others. We know we can count on her if we need help with short term or long term assignments, and last minute positions.  Starla is always willing to step up and try new child care centers, and is a hard worker in the workplace. Starla is very deserving of this award as she continuously goes above and beyond on a daily basis.  We thank you Starla for all you do!

Wisconsin Division:

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Wisconsin Substitute, Lynn. Lynn is a dependable substitute who works often and is flexible about where she works. She is especially helpful when covering last minute positions, which can be stressful in the early hours of the morning. Lynn keeps us in the loop on her schedule in advance, and is always kind and respectful on the phone. Thanks for your great work, Lynn!

Teachers On Call would like to recognize our Wisconsin Substitute, Scott. Scott is an outstanding substitute! He calls our office often to let us know his weekly availability and is very flexible when it comes to accepting assignments. Scott also helps schools by staying additional hours when they are in a bind. He is extremely friendly with our TOC staff, and it is apparent that he genuinely loves working in education. This positive attitude makes Scott a pleasure to work with at Teachers On Call.
