Teachers On Call: Calling all career-changers who want more meaning in their work

August 24, 2021 GMT

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The pandemic’s great workforce shift has millions of people re-evaluating their careers––seeking a higher quality of life, more flexibility, and greater purpose. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 7.5 million people left the U.S. workforce just before summer. Now, they’re being picky about where and when they return.

Teachers On Call invites these “career changers” to consider working inside of a school where they can make a profound impact on students for the rest of their lives.

This is an opportunity for the community to help students with learning recovery. Local schools in Minnesota and surrounding areas have many immediate openings to join an extraordinary team for the 2021-22 school year––some roles do require teaching experience. For others positions that don’t require a teaching credential, Teachers On Call will onboard and train newcomers to become successful in the classroom before you ever step foot into one. We also offer access to health insurance, 40l(k), weekly pay and more.


Inside the classroom:

“The need for a career change, the desire to find a greater purpose, and the demand for more flexibility are driving large numbers of workers to quit their jobs,” says Al Sowers, vice president and practice leader, Teachers On Call. “We call them purpose seekers and work-life designers, and we’re seeing a renewed interest from these individuals to work as substitute teachers, tutors, or paraeducators.”
