Description and requirements of the cover position:

The cover teachers are called on to fill in when one of the permanent staff are away.  Many of our cover teachers have also transitioned into full time staff at the end of their first year, so it is a great way to learn the process of our program before taking on a class.  See the above description for the requirements.
