Job Description:
The School District of Clayton is seeking a Long Term Substitute English Teacher for the spring 2023 semester. 
Students in Clayton High School English classes value the social nature and power of language.  Classes build a reading and writing community where students share meaning, influence others’ ideas, and create cultural connections with our shared literary heritage.  Clayton High School students learn that language is a tool for gathering information and a way to construct and disseminate knowledge, create beauty, and inspire others.  Students learn to recognize and use the structures and conventions of language as well as learn to struggle with ambiguity; through such struggle, thoughtful readers expand their personal perspectives and work to understand the unfamiliar.  Clayton High School English students value language as a tool for reflection and exploration of personal and intellectual concerns, and in doing so become critical readers, writers and thinkers.
