It is if you want to pursue a career in teaching or if you want the experience working with kids. It doesn't pay well but it is a learning experience.
In general, no. It is, however, very flexible and you get out of work quite early in the day. It can prove to be a tough day though for some subs. If you can get into a good district that pays well, the cons might outweigh the pros. It might also be good to make contacts or to check out a school if you are interested in teaching.
I am not sure what you mean by 'worth it'. If you mean financially it can be quite lucrative. I took off work for several years when my first grandson was born, and I had more calls to sub than I had days to offer.
If you mean is it a headache...some days. Some days you have classes that are challenging.
It is a great way to find out if you want to be a teacher.
It is also a great way to learn so much more than in any class that you ever it...it is fabulous OJT (on the job training).
