    SEA Celebrating Substitute Educators Day!

    Substitute Educators Day focuses on the importance of substitute school employees. These professional educators perform a vital function in the maintenance and continuity of daily education.

    Today we celebrate Substitute Educators Day in Seattle. In our public school systems, substitutes are the educational bridges when regular classroom educators are absent. They are called early in the morning, take over lessons with short notice, and ensure that quality education is maintained in our classrooms. The professional substitute ensures that time is productive and furthers the student's learning.

    Substitute Educators throughout the United States are seeking to be recognized as the professionals they are. They are seeking professional compensation and development; they are seeking support through collective bargaining; they are seeking partnership with their full-time colleagues in the classroom.

    Substitute Educators Day seeks to:
    > Increase respect for substitute educators
    > Advocate for all school substitutes to receive wage and
    health benefits for those who work most to all of a full
    school year
    > Receive genuine, continual professional development in
    the art of substitute teaching
    > Provide a reminder for school staff about effective
    practices to prepare for, welcome, and support substitute
