Substitute Educator Spotlight

Cynthia White, substitute teacher

 

"The schools need subs now more than ever. They need reliable people who can come in and fill in the gaps. [Because of COVID] there’s an element of uncertainty for the students, and it’s better for them if they have someone in there who is projecting confidence."
