March 8, 2022

Emma Eckert, 20, dreams of landing a job as a teacher in the Howard County Public School System after graduating with her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Salisbury University. Looking to gain hands-on classroom experience before entering the workforce, she took jobs as a substitute teacher in the school system during her summer and winter breaks. Since the school system announced that it is providing its substitute teachers with a 25% pay increase, Eckert said she will be able to save the money she needs to start her career as a teacher more quickly.
