    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Work is always available Pay is decent for sub work Typically only have to teach 5 class periods (for HS positions) Great opportunity to develop classroom management skills and observe other teachers

    Cons

    Some schools can be chaotic (although most are decent--you just need to learn from experience which schools to avoid) Some days can be slow/boring Schools sometimes reassign subs to different classes/subjects upon arrival in the morning (e.g. if you sign up to teach history you might end up teaching science)

    Pros

    Always work available.flexible hours. Teachers leave lesson plans most of the time Great job if you like interacting with young people. Don't have to develop long term relationships with other staff members Can be very easy or very challenging depending on the school or your experience.

    Cons

    Don't make enough to miss days, no benefits. Must find other work in summer.. many holidays but subs don't get paid for them so this can create hardship of you don't have another source of income
