Guest Teacher Information

Mechanicsburg Area School District is pleased to offer an exciting program where you may  qualify as a Guest Teacher in our school district. Guest Teachers serve as substitute teachers in the absence of the regular classroom teacher. There are opportunities across all grade levels. 

This first half of the training will be completed virtually through online modules.

Module 1: Getting to know our District
Module 2: What does it mean to be an effective Teacher?

The second half of the training will be an in person session  - more information to follow.  


Why Become a Guest Teacher: 
You will have a flexible schedule and the freedom to pick and choose the days that you want to work, as well the buildings and classrooms where you want to work. Most importantly, you will be sharing in the education of our students. 
We are seeking anyone that holds a Bachelor’s degree such as stay-at-home parents or recent college graduates to serve as a guest teacher.

To qualify as a Guest Teacher, participants must:

  • hold at least a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
  • successfully complete the District’s Guest Teacher training program.

If you are interested in completing the Guest Teacher Program, please contact Britny Hopkins at [email protected] or 717-506-0863, prior to the next in person session. Once contacted, she will provide access to the training modules and additional information on required paperwork.

Guest Teachers will receive $105/day. Guest Teachers will also be eligible for the Substitute Teacher Incentive Program. The program allows for a monthly incentive payment depending on the number of substitute openings that a Guest Teacher accepts in a given month. The incentives are as follows:

Monthly Incentive

5 Substitute Days - $75 per eligible month

10 Substitute Days - $160 per eligible month
