When substitute teaching, it can be a battle to get good substitute teaching jobs. While you’re working or doing things with your family, it might seem someone else is always scooping up all the good jobs. If you have been substitute teaching for a while, it might be frustrating to see others getting more jobs, and it might be annoying to find yourself only getting the jobs no one else wants. It may seem like you have to pick between having a life and getting decent substitute teaching jobs. You have a few of options.
Wait by the Phone Constantly
You may choose to sit by the phone, waiting for the substitute teaching system in your local area to call you informing you of open jobs. This may mean giving up Saturday activities with the family or not going out in the evenings for fear of missing a substitute teaching opportunity. It might mean going to bed never knowing if you’ll get called early in the morning and have to rush across town for a substitute teaching position no one else wanted.
Settle for Less
You may also choose to just take the jobs no one else wants. You can do this knowing there are so many substitute teaching opportunities you are missing, but the good news is at least you get to have fun with your family and friends.
Get Notified First of Available Jobs
