Building a Sub Folder, Binder, or Sub Tub? We Can Help!

Even the most organized and well-prepared teachers rarely have their sub binders ready to go! It’s not that they don’t plan ahead, but life happens. Instead of waiting until you wake up sick to put together a sub-binder, make it easy on yourself and do it now!

A substitute teacher folder is the foundation of your class and can keep your substitute feeling prepared with all the information they need to be successful. Creating your sub binder and including your classroom plans and information helps ensure classroom continuity when you are absent. We’ve created an editable and printable Substitute Teacher Binder Template to help keep your classroom on track while you are away.
