Philadelphia & Camden

Across Philadelphia and Camden, Kokua teachers have the chance to embody the mantra: “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”. From the Liberty Bell to the Rocky Steps, Philly has its own exciting and historic culture. A Kokua substitute teacher thrives in this type of environment, which is why we ventured into Philadelphia years ago to partner with leading educators, and many of the top schools across the city’s education landscape.

With both long-term and part-time opportunities available in elementary through high school classrooms, Kokua is a great fit for those seeking to make a difference. Apply now to join us this school year and see the impact you can have on a child’s life as a Kokua Substitute Teacher.
