    Hello,

    I just started subbing in the los angeles school district last october, and with all the planned lay offs for teachers- I was wondering if subs in california think there will still be enough sub jobs for actual substitute teachers?

    I have a multiple subjects credential but with the layoffs - i'm doubtful that i will be able to land a full time teaching job. I rely month to month on subbing to make my livelihood. also, what do subs do during the summer? I feel like I doubt there will be enough year round schools to call me in during that time. I also have a part time retail job to make a little extra money.

    I'm a little freaked out. I do want to get into teaching but I feel like I need to stay with subbing and in the education field because I know positions will eventually open up.

    thank you :help:

    I'm in San Bernardino county. The district I've been w/ has changed from traditional school year system to a system called orange track to year-round. It's currently traditional, but no matter what system it's been on, I never subbed in the summer, even several yrs ago.

    This summer, I guess I'll be completely free from subbing & my college classes.

    In fall 2009, I should be back to subbing. I've been blessed to have numerous, long-term speech assignments (as in speech, language, & hearing therapy grps).

    I've been a bit lucky so far, and been substituting quite a bit for an Alternative Education program in the Monterey County. And one of the teachers at a Youth Center told me, "I was a successful substitute, which would give me high priority for a summer position." With those inspiring words, I was motivated to email the principals at the different schools and will now have a full time teaching position for both summer sessions.

    This Fall I'm hoping to land an internship while I attend college in hopes of obtaining my teaching credential.

    I will most likely continue substituting in the summer as well as in the fall. I have good connections with a particular school that is only 15 minutes from me.
