Can substitute teaching be a financially rewarding career?
I know people who can survive by subbing. Not me. I take off whenever I want or need to. I do not get calls every day, especially in the beginning of the school year. Some people do, however. I do not know how they make it work. There is some trick to it.
It wasn't financially rewarding for me. After subbing for a while, I returned to full time teaching. My son subs when he needs extra money. Financially rewarding? I don't believe it is.
For some people, Yes, if you get work frequently. Otherwise, my answer will be no. I personally find it so difficult and will not be able to cope with it.
i've considered subbing while looking for a teaching job, but the money potential is a bit of a deterrent. mostly, though, i've been afraid that the perils of being a sub -- classroom behavior issues and inconsistent day-to-day business, primarily -- might turn me off to teaching altogether.
has this been a problem for you at all? maybe it's not as big a deal as i imagine.
No, not at all. I have found different teachers have different teaching styles, and it is interesting to be able to watch that and take what I like from the teachers I have observed. I am subbing in the younger grades, pre-k through 4th though.
