Floating teachers should have a general knowledge of all age groups and be prepared to cover any classroom. Some days you will be in one classroom for the entire day covering for the absence of the lead teacher, other times you will be providing breaks or planning time for staff. Floats are also trained in housekeeping roles around the center, including laundry and sanitizing.
