With the partial government shutdown now in its fourth week, Metro Nashville Public Schools is encouraging federal workers to consider filling in as substitute teachers. The opportunity provides substitutes to earn an income upwards of $1,300 every two weeks, according to a release.
“We understand this is a tough time for many families impacted by what is happening at the national level,” said Amber Tyus, MNPS director of talent acquisition. “We believe this is a way for workers to find employment that benefits them and the thousands of young people we serve in this district every day.”
Individuals interested in substitute teaching opportunities may email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the application process or learn more here.
