ABSTRACT
The article offers strategies on how substitute teachers can improve their teaching skills. Substitute teachers are essential to the academic success of students. Under the U.S. No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), schools want to make sure that all teachers including substitutes should be qualified. The first strategy is for substitute teachers to be knowledgeable of the campuses and principals that they would be of service to. Other strategies include managing the classroom with confidence and prepare emergency lesson plans. INSET: An Inexperienced Substituting Experience.
