Do you want to be a substitute teacher? Our local schools are in great need of subs! Attend our one-day Substitute Teacher Workshop and our Suicide Awareness & Prevention Workshop (which is required training for all Maine school employees) and receive a Substitute Teacher Certification that is recognized by PVAEC’s four member districts (MSAD 4, MSAD 41, MSAD 68 and AOS 94). Substitute Teacher Workshop This fun program is designed to prepare people interested in serving as a substitute teacher or ed-tech. There will be plenty of “hands-on learning” that will include important classroom management techniques and teaching strategies. We’ll also cover some legal aspects and help you develop your own “sub pack” of resources and an action plan that will get you started on the right foot! If you’ve been subbing, this is a great opportunity for a “refresher” and some new ideas. Attendees will earn a certificate recognized by many local districts. One student comments, “…very engaging with a lot of real-life scenarios. I came away with new information even after subbing for a year.” Walter Boomsma has worked in the field of developing individual and organization effectiveness for over forty years. He currently teaches with the Real Estate Learning Group and is a “battle-tested” substitute school teacher at Piscataquis Community Elementary School. He is a volunteer “bookworm” with second and third graders and says he “learns a lot” from the stories they read to him and the conversations they have. His book, “Small People — Big Brains” details some of his experiences and lessons the kids have taught him.

Enrollment in this course will automatically enroll you into our Suicide Awareness and Prevention Workshop (a requirement for all Maine school employees).

with Walter Boomsma

Calendar Mar 31, 2020 at 6 pm

This two-hour awareness session will bring attendees into compliance with the recent law (LD 609) that requires all Maine school employees to receive basic suicide prevention education. The program is designed to raise awareness about suicide risk factors and warning signs and to provide information on what practical steps to take if suicide is suspected. While focused on students and youth, the information and skills you will learn are appropriate for use with anyone who might be feeling suicidal, no matter what their age. Students who attend say they feel much more confident and comfortable talking about suicide. The workshop will be conducted by Walter Boomsma who is Gatekeeper trained and NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Certified Mental Health Specialist for Youth and Adults. He is also an experienced educator and substitute elementary school teacher.

Space is limited; preference will be given to students who have completed Boomsma's Substitute Teacher Training Course.
