Who is Enriched Schools?

Enriched is a community talent hub that supports student learning across the country. We connect schools with awesome flexible staff: substitute teachers, enrichment instructors, coaches and more. We are on a mission to eliminate loss of student learning due to teacher absence, and we do so by tapping into the power of community.

What is Enriched all about?

Enriched believes that the "sub day" is an opportunity to ignite passions in kids and push learning forward, not leave them 2 steps behind. Enriched believes all schools deserve committed partners to help them provide diverse adult role models for their students, as well as resources for sustainability (like access to quality, on-demand coverage options, candidates for mid-year vacancies, etc.) to help their teachers and leaders thrive.

What is a Guest Educator and what does one do?

A Guest Educator is a passionate, professional substitute teacher. As an Enriched Guest Educator ("GE"), you will serve as a highly qualified, highly impactful, flexible substitute teacher, embodying excellence, impact and delight at all times for our partner schools and students.

You will receive selective opportunities to enrich at schools in Philadelphia, PA in content and grade level areas of your expertise, and on days that work for your schedule. You will have the opportunity to both bring your own unique specialty and guest lessons, as well as serve as an "A Team" pinch hitter who is able to pick up a teacher's lesson plan or jump right in to support a school partner where they need us most.
