I remain hopeful of finding a teaching or teacher's aide job by the fall, but the reality is I am probably going to have to go back to substitute teaching this year. The issue is, I have a baby. I have never had to deal with daycare (family is too far away for free babysitting), and I'm not even sure how to go about it considering subbing is often a last minute deal. I'm just wondering if anyone has had any success with doing this. Are there daycares that don't mind you showing up at random times if you got called in at 5 am? What if you didn't end up getting called in that day? Did people find that subbing was enough to afford the cost of daycare? I live in LA if that makes any difference. I want to make sure I stay in the education field as best I can, but if this isn't an option I may have to look outside it.
