Hershey, PA
Job Category: Teacher

Milton Hershey School (MHS) is seeking a One Year Full-time High School Building Substitute Teacher to assist through the 2022-2023 school year.  It is anticipated that instruction will take place in-person, but requires the flexibility to teach virtually, if needed. Building Substitutes are a full-time position in which teachers are assigned to classrooms where teachers are absent or where coverage is otherwise needed.  Building Substitutes cover classrooms in all grades (9 through 12) and all content areas.

MHS teachers collaborate with fellow faculty and other 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 expected of the role.
