Enjoyed my conversation with Mike Teng, Co-Founder and CEO of Swing Education. Swing Education enables schools to post their substitute job openings and substitute teachers can then pick and choose what suits their needs. Swing leverages social communities and technology to not only improve communication but put power back into the hands of substitutes and the schools that need them. @SwingEdu Follow Swing on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
