    I was wondering if anyone out there like me who is a substitute is worried about working in the summer. I was wondering if anyone knows of any educational jobs for the summer.

    I teach blind people blindness skills (using the cane, Braille, etc.) over the summer. Maybe there is a camp in your area that you can teach at, whether it's crafts or sports or another interest of yours.

    I got a job teaching summer school for six weeks. So many teachers don't want to teach summer school so there are opportunities there.
    Check your local district websites for opportunities.

    I used to sub at a daycare. I had a notebook and all the teachers would come to me and schedule their vacations. Maybe you could see if there is a need for that if you are interested...

    I am teaching summer school (2 classes in Keyboarding & Computer Applications 4-8 and 2 classes of Music 1-3, going back to my roots, I guess) - and of course, I have the grocery store (my regular part-time job).

    Go through all of the school vacancy listings for summer school jobs- many are gone, but I have seen a few.

    Also consider the park district summer camps. Working with kids that way would be considered relatable skills.

    I'll be watching two of my nephews and getting paid for it. Days spent riding bikes, swimming, watching tv/movies, etc. - yay. One of my nephews is special needs though and he really knows how to drive a person up the wall so it will be frustrating 80% of the time.

    I followed the links and didn't see where it said those two things were necessary.

    Best of luck in your search.

    I'm with ya on that! I'm trying so hard to find a full time job for the fall...and NOW I just realized that I need to start looking for a job for the summer!

    This is so complicated! I really don't want to work anywhere that doesnt relate to education - otherwise i feel like school officials frown on it. "Oh...you worked here...hmm...no other work?" It's just as hard to find a education related job as it is to find a teaching job! haha - maybe I'm just going crazy!

    Pretty much any job can be related to education. And, in this economy, I think most principals would prefer to see you with some work experience than waiting for something in a school.

    Have you looked into Sylvan or Huntington Learning Centers? It's decent pay and the experience would look nice on a resume.

    of course you can relate any line of work to education SOMEHOW. i'm just trying my hardest to not work at walmart or a hotel again.... :)

    plus i definitely wouldn't just sit around all summer, i'll get work somewhere, it's just deciding where right now. so far i've applied to a gymboree play & music and a sylvan center.

    i was considering just volunteering at a museum - if i do have to choose the route of working in customer service :) that will at least get me some experience
