I would like to ask you if a substitute teacher need a teacher certificate to teach Kindergarten or Elementary school? I have a Bachelor Degree in Education, is it enough? And how is the salary? What I want so bad is that I want to work in a Kindergarten..either as an Aide( even though I heard that it's very rare to have an Aide in Kindergarten or Elementary school, or am I wrong?) or a substitute teacher because I like it and also to see the educational system from U.S as I'm a foreigner from Europe) I would also like to ask you, if you can help me.....if you are a substitute teacher, can you have another job....what I'm trying to say is...you just stay at home and wait for some schools to call you ...can you make ends meet from this job? For example..I'm a teacher assistant at preschool( working from 9-6)...in order to be a substitute teacher do I need to quit my current job? Or how is it? Thank you in advance! I would highly appreciate your help in this matter!
