If you're looking for a fulfilling temp job - think about substitute teaching.
The teacher shortages we're hearing about include substitute teachers as well. HISD's Dr. Alejandro Gonzalez says they usually work an 8 hour day and many work extended assignments. He says subs are really needed now. "We're always looking for substitutes. Just this last year and a half has made it even more difficult and so we just find ourselves looking for more substitutes that we are used to.""
"The HISD hourly rate for substitute teachers is $14 an hour. If you're coming back after having retired as a teacher or an associate teacher, the pay is a little bit more." Assignments vary from 1st grade to high school calculus . At HISD you must have at least 60 hours of college and will be given some training and on-boarding. Your local ISD requirements and pay may vary and Dr. Gonzales suggests you visit their websites for their criteria and wage.
At HISD, there is some training and on-boarding before you enter the classroom. Your first step is to visit your area's ISD's web site and follow the directions to apply.
