ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - The COVID-19 pandemic is creating a career path for area professionals and college students that they not have thought about in the past, teaching.

Many area schools need substitute teachers to help students get back on track. School administrators say community members could be the key to making that happen. Kelly Education hosted a job fair to find substitute teaching candidates and says it will provide the training to make sure the person is ready for the classroom.

Tammy McDonald-Adoba of Kelly Education says, “I think its a noble profession right and I think that if you are looking to make a difference in your community you’re looking to make a difference in a child’s life. If you’re looking for a flexible schedule and something you create and do as you please, I think it’s the right thing for you.”

The recruiting process can take up to three weeks to finalize and it can be done in person, over the phone or virrtually.
