We are currently recruiting applicants for substitute teaching positions. Substitute teachers gain valuable experience working with children while having the opportunity to observe some of the field’s most quality educators. Many of our staff have been here for 10 or more years. Many were hired on after subbing with us. There is nowhere better to learn about quality early education than UTCS! Just submit a resume and cover letter here.
We hire substitute teachers based on their passion for children and working in strong community. While we appreciate previous work experience with children, we do not require it. We believe in fostering curiosity around early education in children and adults alike.
We hire full time teachers based on their professional background, with particular attention given to their philosophy in working with children. Our staff members are expected to have experience working with children and/or education in Early Childhood Development. Most of our staff have both.
Candidates are interviewed carefully in a traditional question and answer setting. Strong candidates are asked to return for a second interview in the classroom and their references are thoroughly checked. After a satisfactory performance during a three-month trial period, a teacher becomes a regular member of our staff, receiving ongoing training and evaluations. As the state regulations require, a criminal history check is filed with the Department of Early Learning for each new employee. Staff members are required to obtain First Aid, CPR, Bloodborne Pathogens and Food handler certifications, a TB test, and Washington State S.T.A.R.S. training if needed.
