Back to all Careers

JOB ID: 23000054

Hershey, PA
Job Category: Teacher

Milton Hershey School (MHS) is a tuition free, home, and private school for over 2,000 Pre-K through 12th grade students.  Founded in 1909 by Milton and Catherine Hershey, the lives of more than 11,000 students have been positively transformed through MHS’s high-quality career-focused education, nurturing home life, and extensive extra-curricular opportunities.  


MHS is hiring a highly qualified, dynamic Full Time High School Building Substitute Teacher to begin in the 23/24 school year.  MHS’s High School serves over 900 lower-income students enrolled in 9th through 12th grade. MHS strives to provide small class sizes (average of 1/15 – 18) and well-resourced classrooms which includes state-of-the-art technology for students and faculty. 

Building Substitutes are a full-time position in which the teacher is assigned to classrooms in which teachers are absent or where coverage is otherwise needed.  Building Substitutes cover classrooms in all grades (9th through 12th) and all subject areas.  Oftentimes the Building Sub may cover multiple different classes in the same day and assist with a variety of other responsibilities throughout the School.  Building Substitutes may also act in co-teaching assignments or supplementary classroom support roles.     


Building Substitutes ensure that a high-quality education is maintained during their time with the students.  They maintain continued academic rigor despite the change of personnel.  In most cases, lesson plans are provided by the teacher of that classroom.  In longer term assignments, the Building Substitute will develop lesson plans and assessments to ensure students’ instruction remains consistent.  Lessons are to be based on PA Common Core Standards while creating an engaging classroom with meaningful, rigorous and developmentally appropriate instruction.  Assessments are to be formative and summative and should lend themselves to differentiated instruction, as well as accommodate individual student and whole group needs.  


MHS teachers collaborate with fellow faculty and other MHS staff to ensure a whole child approach is taken to student development.  They also are responsible for supporting School initiatives such as social & emotional learning and health & wellness.  MHS teachers are required to schedule and complete an additional duty to their teaching schedules.  Tutoring is also an expectation of the role.   


  • Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education.
  • Secondary Education Teacher state certification required.  Special Education certification and/or Reading certification a plus.
  • Experience working with diverse high school students from lower income preferred.
  • Demonstrated success in creating engaging, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for a diverse student population.
  • Demonstrated success utilizing data to drive classroom instruction and develop instructional plans and curriculum.
  • Exceptional skills in positive behavioral management & classroom management are required.  Restorative justice practices experience a plus. 
  • Demonstrated skills in applying current trends in education including utilizing technology and integrating 21st century learning skills.
  • Demonstrated skills in differentiating instruction.
  • Highly skilled in effectively collaborating with others as a positive and contributing member of multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Demonstrated skills in using creative teaching strategies to increase students’ ability to think critically.
  • Excellent organizational and multi-tasking skills are required.
  • Must demonstrate a high degree of integrity as all MHS staff are considered to be role models for students.
  • MHS desires candidates who are “all in” and are eager to actively engage with students beyond the classroom in various extra-curricular opportunities.
