Hi, I will know whether I do have a new job in a few days - but all my interviews (and this possible job) are in the same part of the country which has a VERY high cost of living. I was told the possible 'starting' salary in the interview and at this point I am thinking - roomates? live in a bad part of the neighborhood? Seriously, though, I think if I ever want to vacation again or have money to retire, I need to consider working in the summers. So, my question to other educators is - what do you do to earn extra money in the summer? Do any of these earn a lot? (or how much do they earn relative to your current salary?) Ideas I am entertaining so far: adjunct teaching a course at college in the summer; summer school teaching at the school; try to freealance write? I also noticed that tutoring in some areas seems to earn a lot of money - didn't know if it was truly worth the time investiment or if it is feasible in the summer. Any ideas that others are willing to share would be appreciated.
