As an aspiring school counselor, Agustin Juarez turned to substitute teaching in order to get the hands-on experience that would propel him to the next stage of his career. Thanks to the Swing platform, Agustin has been able to fit subbing seamlessly into his life.

Hands-on experience

I became a substitute teacher so that I could see what support kids need in the classroom setting firsthand. As an aspiring school counselor, I wanted to get a feel of the classroom as a teacher, so that in my future career I can be helpful to both students and teachers.

Favorite part about subbing

My favorite part of substitute teaching is the special connection that I make with students. Even though some assignments are only one day, getting to know the students and figuring out their different learning styles is magnificent and makes for a fun day!
