Become a Substitute Teacher

Substitute teachers are valuable members of the Penn-Harris-Madison Triangle of Success. 


Substitute teacher compensation:

  • $100 a day for Regular Subs

  • $135 a day for Retired subs


We are excited to announce that we have partnered with ESS to manage our substitute program. A leader in K-12 staffing, ESS is now responsible for the hiring, training, and placement of all classroom substitute teachers and all of our aides in the school buildings that require a sub when they are absent. 


What does this partnership mean for our current and new substitutes?


We cannot thank our dedicated substitutes enough for stepping in at a moment’s notice to ensure our students experience continuity in academic and support services. It is our sincere hope that you will continue to substitute for our district – but to do so, you will need to become an employee of ESS. While you will officially be an ESS employee, you will still be an active member of the P-H-M community. 


Being an ESS employee, you will have the opportunity to earn incentives, bonuses, and benefits that P-H-M doesn't currently offer:

  • Minimum Essential Coverage
  • Medical, dental, vision insurance 
  • Life, critical, accident, and disability insurance
  • 401 (k) retirement plan


Performance Incentives:

  • Employee of the Month receive $50 and a letter of appreciation

  • Employee of the Year receives $500 and an additional $500 donated to the school of their choice

  • Cash rewards for accepting assignments on hard-to-fill days, in hard-to-fill locations, or for accepting a certain quantity of assignments before a certain date. 

  • Monthly gift card raffle

  • Special appreciation events

  • "Perks at Work" discount and rewards program


We sincerely hope you’re interested in working as a substitute for our district, please visit to apply or reach out to Michele Rogers, Indiana Regional Manager, at: or (574) 229-9513.
