School District Administrator Testimonials
Cynthia Jones, Human Resources/Risk Management in Wakulla County School
“The demands on our time and budget have limited us from hiring substitutes in the past. This outsource has taken a considerable piece of the constraints from us. We have been very pleased with the information and ease of your training along with the positive feedback from trainees. We have recommended this to other districts.”
Dr. Bobbie Dawson, Director of Federal Programs for Washington County School District (FL):
"That's it? We're ready to start? Wow! That was easy! I've been in this job a long time, and no part of my job has ever been this easy!"
Cheryl Allen, Director of Human Resources for Monroe County School District (FL):
"I like that the program is 100% online and that the assessment piece is built-in. We used to use the Utah State workbooks and CDs, which were expensive and less convenient, and we weren't able to require new subs to complete the online assessment, so we had no way of knowing for certain that they did the work. This solution is much easier, more affordable and less time-consuming for us, while also being more complete."
Maureen Wilson, Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services for Longmeadow Public Schools (MA):
“Using the Sub-Hub to train our subs has been a good experience for us. [The training] was especially useful for new subs coming into the district but was also a good refresher for those who were already subbing. I found the program to be very flexible and our subs were pleased with the training.”
Donna Wingard, Director of Teacher Certification, Endorsement and NCLB Compliance for Polk County School District (FL):
"I have been very impressed with the quality of the Sub-Hub program. We've streamlined our processes without reducing the quality of our training. I have already recommended the Sub-Hub to many of my colleagues and associates. I know that they will be successful long-term because there is such a need for this type of program."
Patricia Nabors, Manger of Employee Processes for Albuquerque Public Schools (NM):
“The Sub-Hub has helped us to streamline our sub hiring processes and has been very well received by the subs. In our initial pilot subs spoke highly of the program content and technology and the support has been responsive and helpful. I consider deciding to use this program one of my better decisions.”
Karen Peddie, Director of Administration for Liberty County Schools (FL):
"I just wanted to convey my appreciation to you and your company. Our online substitute training has begun and we are absolutely thrilled with the service.
My time as an administrator is divided between so many responsibilities and training substitutes formerly demanded a half day every month. With the online training I am now free to delegate the training to another staff member, while being assured that the level of training is not compromised.
The program components combined with our district specific policy and procedures page included everything my training had previously covered and then some. Our prospective employees are equally happy with the flexible training schedule. They are encouraged to call our office to schedule their training at a time that is convenient to them.
We are increasing our number of substitutes daily which is also creating some very happy school administrators. Thank you again for all of your assistance."
Barbara Melanson, Director of Human Resources, Charlotte County Public Schools (FL):
"I finished the course and liked the format. It is simple, easy to understand, and thorough. You all did a really good job."
Tony Anderson, Adminstrator/Coordinator for PAEC FloridaLearns (FL):
"I previewed the sample training that you provided, and the product looks very good and is user friendly. I would be happy to send it out to the district HR Directors or Professional Development Directors in our consortium for their review."
Joyce Menz, Director of Staff and Program Development for Nassau County School District (FL):
"I liked the course and we would prefer for ALL instructional staff to take it in addition to having their annual update by principals on this topic, and their initial training during our new teacher program. I think this is a more efficent and trackable way of training our employees."
Learner Testimonials"Great job, it was perfect! I'm ready to take on the world of subbing."
"I have been a substitute teacher in the past, and I wish I had had this training prior to beginning my assignments then. I really did learn information that I can use in my current position as well as being a substitute teacher. I'm looking forward to taking the other courses in the series."
"I particularly liked the video explanations. I am an audio learner so this was extremely helpful. The material was well presented and reviewed. I did take several notes which I think will refresh my memory. All in all ... a very nice and informative course."
"As with the Sub-Hub course on Substitute teaching, I found the Paraprofessional course very informative and helpful as well as re-emphasizing the material leaned in the Substitute teaching course. Thank You."
"I found the Sub-hub online training to be more useful and educational than the in person substitute training I attended about a year ago. The information is presented in a way in which I was able to better retain what I had learned. I felt that the in person training was okay, but it was so open to questions and comments that it would often go off track or become confusing. I even found this course helpful for my current Graduate of Education Program. This program helped to reinforce and build upon concepts I already had some knowledge about, and it also introduced me to some new concepts I had not previously learned about. I give this online training an A+."
“I want you to know I have highly recommended the [Substitute Teacher] program to the other districts where I sub. I have personally benefited from your program in the following ways: I complete the work I'm supposed to cover, I am organized and focused with a plan, I have the framework and knowledge to support the challenging students I encounter, I know to ask about medical issues, and I understand where a sub fits into a child's and a class' space. Thank you for providing this wonderful program."
"This course enabled me to be very cautious in my line of work as a paraprofessional. It kept me very alert and enabled me to learn about things I didn't take seriously or was not aware of. It was an excellent course that will enable me to give my job 100% and to be safe."
