Why Substitute Teach at KIPP Austin?

Flexible Work Schedule: Our substitute teachers have the flexibility to customize their own schedule and use an online tool called Aesop to find and manage their assignments. Substitute teachers work anywhere from 3 days per month to daily, depending on their availability. We ask that our substitute teachers demonstrate dedication and commitment to our school community by accepting a minimum of 3 assignments per month.

Gain Experience and Make Connections: Substitute teaching can be an excellent pathway to future full-time roles. In fact, while our hire rate for full-time positions is about 6% of total online applicants, almost 70% of our 2014-15 substitute teachers who applied to full-time positions were hired.

Competitive Pay: Our substitute teachers are paid a competitive daily rate, depending on qualifications.

  • 60+ College Hours: $90 / day
  • Degreed (Bachelor, Master or Doctorate): $100 / day
  • Texas Certified Teacher: $120 / day
  • Long Term Stipend: Substitute teachers who have been selected by a school to complete 10 consecutive days or more in the same assignment will receive an additional $20 / day
