Substitute Teacher Class scheduled in Dexter and Dover


This fun one-day program is designed in collaboration with PVAEC 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. The workshop is based on Utah State University’s STEDI Program and attendees will earn a certificate recognized by PVAEC member 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.” The program is taught by Walter Boomsma, an experienced substitute teacher and adult educator. An optional recommended text containing educational strategies and classroom activities will be available for $25.

The fee for this one day class is $10 and the class is being offered twice:

  1. Tuesday, January 28th at Dexter Regional High School Dexter starting at 9 AM and ending at 4 PM.
  2. Tuesday, February 11th at Penquis Higher Education Center (Dover Foxcroft) starting at 9 AM and ending at 4 PM

For additional information or to register, contact PVAEC at 564-6525 or visit their website to sign up online. For questions about course content, email “Mr. Boomsma.”

  1. Well Walter you always surprise me with your energy and organization skills. When most of us at our age are looking for early bird specials and early naps you’re writing books and teaching our youth. I certainly miss working with you and perhaps when the snow melts in Maine Laura and I may visit. Have a great 2014…..Your friend Bill Ricci
    PS: go to my website, not really as lazy as I say….

    Bill! Sometimes I surprise me… but I’m having tons of fun! I’ll catch up with an email… because if you’re going to wait for the snow to melt it may be a LONG time–minus twenty here this morning.Your site is great… and an interesting (but not surprising) business for you… I knew you were working in that direction; glad it seems to be successful for you. Unfortunately, most of the kids I work with probably don’t need sanitation services… well, not the kind you offer! LOL Be in touch…
