The Gibbsboro Board of Education is currently seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic candidates for current Substitute Teaching positions.
Substitute Teachers are called on an as-needed basis to provide classroom coverage located in the Gibbsboro School. Our talented team of teachers will design an appropriate curriculum which you will implement during your time in that classroom.
Please bring the items listed below to the school office, and your name will be placed on the next Board of Education agenda for approval. Once your application packet has been received, and after approval at the Board of Education meeting, your name will then be placed on our active substitute call list.
