Guest Teacher

  • Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12 offers Guest Teacher Training on behalf of Adams, York, and Franklin County school districts.

    Individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree in any field of study are eligible to apply to become guest teachers. The PA Department of Education (PDE) allows school districts and intermediate units to apply for emergency certifications for qualified applicants. Applicants who complete Guest Teacher Training requirements are eligible to substitute in LIU 12 classrooms and participating school districts in the area (listed at the bottom of this page).

    LIU 12’s guest teacher training includes two segments: online training and on-site orientation at LIU. Online training requires approximately 8.5 hours of viewing time, which can be completed at the applicant’s convenience. Orientation dates occur on a rolling/ongoing basis and will be scheduled after all prerequisites are completed. 

    Prior to online training and orientation, the following items MUST be received by the LIU 12 Human Resources Department:

    1. Guest Teacher application
    2. $75 non-refundable training fee (check / money order – payable to LIU 12)
    3. Two completed reference forms: Guest Teacher Reference Form 

    NOTE: After your application has been submitted and reviewed, LIU will contact you via phone and/or email to proceed. Please do not submit payment, references, or Act 168 forms until you have been contacted by LIU.

    Once the required items listed above have been received by the LIU Human Resources department, applicants will be contacted via phone and/or email in order to schedule orientation and receive access to the online training.
