Substitute Educators Day

Friday of American Education Week

Substitute Educators Day was established in 2003 by the NEA Representative Assembly. Substitute teachers have a vital role in public schools. They have an ability to go into a classroom of strange faces and keep students on task in the absence of the regular classroom teacher. Encourage increased respect for substitutes by celebrating Substitute Educators Day, the Friday of American Education Week.
