New Mexico Governor Signs Up To Be A Substitute Teacher

Amid a teacher staffing shortage, New Mexico's governor is signing up to become a volunteer substitute teacher.

It's a part of GovernorMichelle Lujan Grisham's new initiative to fill staffing gaps by getting state workers and National Guard members to sign up as volunteer substitute K-through-12 teachers and child care workers.

Lujan Grisham's press secretary confirmed to CNN the governor completed the process herself to become licensed as a substitute teacher -- which includes a background check, online training, and a school's typical onboarding process.

While Lujan Grisham has no prior experience in education, she tells CNN she expects to be assigned to an elementary school sometime next week.
