Summit ESC and Renhill Group to Host Substitute Job Fair

The Summit Educational Service Center (ESC) and Renhill Group, an Ohio teacher staffing firm, will host a Substitute Job Fair on Aug. 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Summit ESC Event Center, located at 420 Washington Avenue in Cuyahoga Falls.

The available substitute opportunities include full-day and half-day assignments for teachers, classroom assistants and classroom attendants for the Integrated Preschool Program throughout Summit County as well as teachers and classroom assistants for both KIDS FIRST and Transition Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS) in the Copley-Fairlawn City School District.

“The opportunities available at the Summit ESC are more than just a job,” says Bailey Koester, Department Manager, Education, at the Renhill Group. “Substitute teachers and classroom assistants play vital roles in the education and well-being of the community’s children. We are looking to hire people who understand that role and embrace it.”

The Integrated Preschool Program is for preschool-aged children with special needs as well as typically developing peers. Substitutes will engage in play with students, assist with arrival and departure activities, toileting (as necessary), facilitating snack time and various other activities.

The KIDS FIRST program serves students, from kindergarten through grade eight, who have an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis. TOPS serves high school students throughout Summit County. Substitutes for both of these programs are expected to be active participants in the classroom and engage in constant interaction with students. Candidates must also be comfortable in dealing with severe behaviors and be able to provide intense interventions as needed.

“We are looking for the best possible candidates who enjoy working with all children, including those with special needs,” says Kristen Matti, Hiring & Compliance Specialist for the Renhill Group. “Prior teaching experience is not required as we offer comprehensive training for successful candidates.”

Interested parties are asked to bring a copy of their resume and two forms of ID to the job fair. Candidates should be prepared to interview on the spot. Renhill Group is the employer for all substitute positions for the Summit ESC.
