    My sister is just starting out as a teacher so she was wondering how many years of experience she technically has if she did student teaching plus one month of long-term subbing?
    Would that count as one year since it totals about 7 months?
    Or would that be zero years & student teaching doesn't count?

    I'd think zero.

    Zero. Student teaching does not typically count.

    Zero. They don't even have to give you full credit for non-public school experience in my state.

    Well she did her student teaching in a public school and her long term subbing also in a public school :p

    So when in doubt, round down?

    Definitely zero. Student teaching doesn't count, and the long term was just for one month. Even if it were longer, subbing typically doesn't count either, at least in my area.

    Depends on how the long-term subbing was considered within your district: that itself might be considered 0.1 years. The student teaching won't count, though.

    It can't hurt to ask HR of wherever she ends up teaching, though! Never want to accidentally leave money on the table.

    I did an entire year of subbing (all except 5 days) at the same school, and almost a semester of that was for the same teacher. I was teaching within my certification area, too. Still didn't count toward experience when applying for jobs or time toward retirement.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I think in some cases my subbing did count as partial experience. I can't remember if that was in regards to pay scale, or something else...but it did in some fashion. Again, can't hurt to ask.

    Thanks, all. I'll have her ask the HR at her new district.

    For me, one district I interviewed for a few years ago counted every paid teaching job (like daycare, but did not student teaching, so those years of working in daycare counted towards the pay/step scale, which was nice! But I turned down that offer so it didn't matter anyway)
