Do I need a credential to Guest Teach?
Yes, but with the qualifications above you will qualify for the 30-day Substitute Permit, which is the “sub credential”. This is a certificate from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing that will allow you to teach in classrooms but limits you to no more than 30 days of service in any single classroom a year (and 20 days of service for Special Education classrooms). You can find more information at CTC Substitute Permits Requirements.
