    Employment Opportunities

    Substitute Teachers are valued members of the Portland Public Schools community who play an integral role in supporting the students and school communities of Portland Public Schools every day. Working as a Substitute Teacher with Portland Public Schools requires a high level of flexibility and adaptability, as Substitute Teachers are eligible to work throughout the district in any school, any subject, and any grade level. Substitute Teachers work a flexible schedule on an as-needed basis, and have the ability to assign themselves to jobs via the Absence Management system.

    Portland Public Schools has a competitive hiring process for our Substitute Teacher pool. In order to be considered for a Substitute Teacher position, you must hold an active Oregon Teaching License issued from TSPC and you must submit your application to the current Substitute Teacher job posting.
