Can long term teaching substitutes collect unemployment?

I am starting a new job next week. It’s a long term substitute position. However that is only for another 4 months. After the school year ends, will I be able to collect unemployment? I have previous work history. I was a teacher for 5 1/2 years until I quit to move to out-of-state.
