Hi! I'm conflicted. I've been offered these two positions and I don't know which to choose. I enjoy working with kids, but I don't want to become a teacher. I'm a writer and am working on a novel right now, but of course that isn't going to be paying the bills just yet. Surprisingly, the sub position pays way more than the aide position. I would work every day for both positions and I would receive benefits. My friends and family, of course are interested in the pay. Obviously, the aide would be a consistent routine while the sub would be last minute and what not. The subbing would either be for maternity leave or for absent teachers. Listen, I want something good. I want something that won't give me work to take home because that would be my writing time. Please help!
