About Noble 
Noble is Chicago’s highest-performing and largest network of public charter high schools. Our 18 schools and 1,500 employees currently serve over 12,500 students, 98% of whom are students of color, 90% low-income, and 81% first-generation college-goers. The School Quality and Rating Policy scores for the Chicago Public Schools rated Noble campuses as ten of the top twelve public high schools in the city. Noble supports over 20,000 alumni with 98% of Noble students accepted into college and almost 94% choosing to enroll. 

The people we hire must have a commitment to being anti-racist in all areas of our organization. In the past, we have diligently worked toward pursuing the accomplishments listed above. We plan to use that same determination, innovation, and diligence in our goal to become an anti-racist organization. We believe our people are the most valuable asset in preparing our students to be successful in college and lead choice-filled lives - and welcome those ready to join us in that pursuit.

Role Overview
This is a full-time, long-term substitute teaching role with benefits. Network long-term substitutes support parental leave coverage for various classrooms around our network of 18 campuses and fulfill administrative duties (office support, culture team support) as needed. Each parental leave coverage varies, but substitutes can expect assigned coverage duties to range from 4 weeks to a semester in length. When not in a long term subbing role, this person is available to travel and substitute on an on-call basis or support with central office administrative needs. We are seeking applicants who can start as soon as mid-August 2021.
