    I have been working at Clark County School District part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been working with kids since high school and substituting is a great way to get some fulfillment in that regard while being able to dodge the schools and classrooms you may not be a fan of. I also got extremely lucky and found a school I sub at with extraordinary regularity. Being able to hop from work environment to work environment until you find a place you adore and just stay put is a really nice feeling. My very first school was such a scenario, but I imagine for others it may take a little longer.

    Cons

    It all comes down to the pay. The school calendar has 180 days on it. $90 a day is $16,200 if you sub EVERY SINGLE DAY. I don't know if it's intentional, because it was never made apparent to me, but it's nigh impossible for most people to work this job alone. I work two jobs to make it all come together. Even if you work a vacancy or work in schools on the east side where the pay is slightly better, it's not really a great pay rate. This is a job of passion and of convenience. I enjoy working with kids, and it's incredibly easy to get the job as all you need is 60 college credits. I realize this may speak to the pay rate, but if you're mandating college experience and trusting these folks with kids from all around the valley, there probably should be a little more offered in return.
