Ideas for Substitute Teachers' Business Cards


If you are currently a substitute teacher, then you want to effectively advertise the fact that you are available to be hired in the hopes of securing not only substitute assignments but eventually a permanent position. One idea to advertise your services is to create a business card. Aside from your contact info, the card can detail information about you as a subtitute professional.


  • Place a picture of yourself on the front of your business card. The picture should show you in a professional manner. If you are a male, wearing a shirt and tie or a collared shirt is advisable. If you are a female, wear a suit or dress, which exudes professionalism. You can also have the picture taken in a classroom setting. For example, the picture might feature you in the classroom.


  • List your education and accreditations on the front of your substitute teacher business card. When the principal or hiring staff pulls your card, they will immediately know in what field you have your degree. This will allow them to place you better in the classroom by assigning you to a subject where you have expertise. If you have taken any additional continuing education courses list those as well.

Desired Areas

  • If you have a favorite subject or age range of children you like to teach, then place that information on the front of the business card. While every assignment offered to you might not be in your preferred area, it will allow the principal or human resources department to place you in classrooms you enjoy teaching as often as possible.

Contact Information

  • If you are leaving a business card behind for the teacher who is out, or with the office staff, remember there is a chance that a student could get a hold of the business card. If you are worried about them getting your contact information, then create a separate email and phone number where you only receive information about substitute teaching assignments. That way if a student does abuse the privacy of your contact information, you can create another email account and change your phone number without affecting your personal contact information for friends and family.
