SubIn Open House

On Friday, November 19, 2021, Bradford Elementary School, the University Magnet School in the Montclair Public Schools, hosted an open house for Montclair State University students who are interested in becoming substitute teachers. Speakers included Bradford principal Frances Aboushi, district Human Resources Director Damen Cooper, and Superintendent Dr. Jonathan Ponds, all of whom spoke about their passion for education and the benefits of gaining substitute teaching experience in the Montclair schools.

Many of the attendees are students in Montclair State’s new SubIN program, which recruits and supports those interested in becoming substitute teachers. “Events like these are a win-win for Montclair State students and for our partner districts: they provide real-world opportunities for students to explore career options while providing the district with potential new substitute teachers at a time when there is a great need for additional staff in our schools,” said Caroline Murray, co-coordinator of the SubIN program.
