Sub Central is a good way to become aquainted with the schools in the districts you have selected. You can call HR Connect to add subject areas and districts so that you can get more calls. Don't sign up for any districts that are too far, as the system may call you as close as 30 minutes before you have to be at a school. Once you've been to a school, they may ask you for your contact information. If they are satisfied with your work, the school can call you directly, sometimes for several days of work and plenty of prior notification. Looking for jobs on their website doesn't really work. You cannot search during call out times (5-9am and 3-10pm I think those are the times). So you would have to look in the middle of the night or very early morning when teachers are calling out. Your best bet is to give your information to the schools directly. Don't be afraid of declining a job. I decided that I don't want to work at junior high schools, so I decline them. The system will call you back if they have something else. It seems completely random and they don't hold it against you if you say no.

Show up 15-20 minutes earlier, as you will have to fill out the time card and get your schedule, maybe even look for the AP for lesson plans. I usually have some of my own work (I am a certified English teacher) and some word searches on hand, just in case the teacher doesn't leave work. It also helps because you can give a word search to the kid who's making noise and refuses to do what the teacher left. Hard word searches with lots of words do the trick.

It's hard work so good luck!
