Substitute Teachers

All school staff members play an integral role in education. From daily to long-term substitutes, we have available positions at our schools across the district that fit every schedule and level of experience from those exploring a career in education to those who are recent college grads.
Substitute Teachers are responsible for operating a safe, orderly, and positive classroom environment while the regular teacher is absent. They must follow the teacher’s lesson plans, as well as school policies and procedures, to provide effective instruction for students.
Waterbury Public Schools is proud to partner with ESS to find the best staff to fill our substitute openings! Any candidates interested in becoming a WPS substitute teacher must apply on the ESS website.


For any questions regarding the hiring process, please contact Donna Divito at the WPS Substitute Office at 203-574-8026.
