    Substitute Teacher Spotlight
    Polk County Public Schools, Florida
    Haines City High School

    Kelly Education is proud to highlight the work of our talented substitute teachers. Turkesa Code shares about her experiences and offers her inspiration to new substitute teachers.

    Why did you become a substitute teacher with Kelly Education®?

    Initially, I chose it because my son started to attend Haines City High School. I stayed because the staff is so welcoming and helpful. 

    I've been doing it for five years and am always made to feel like I am part of a family. The principal is always including me in events with other faculty and staff. He never made me feel like "just a substitute".

    Kelly Education always gave me what I needed to perform well at my job. They prepared me to work full-time through workshop trainings so I knew what to expect inside the classroom.

    What do you like most about being a substitute teacher?

    I love the atmosphere and children. I enjoy connecting with the students. It's fun to watch them light up when they are learning and understanding. 

    What advice would you give to new substitute teachers?

    I would say that they should come in with the attitude that they are going to change the world. You are here to teach future leaders.
