Successful substitute teaching


Published on

Published in: Education, Technology
  • In addition to participation in strengthening the field to make us more efficient subs, I do believe your organization might also be concerned with the health and financial welfare of substitute teachers. As you know, there is no Union currently in place for substitute teachers; therefore, these amazing men and women, who have major responsibilities like anyone else, are paid only what has been predetermined as “district” payment rate for services rendered. Recently I co-wrote a book with financial expert V.L. Trent, titled: If You Want a Larger Piece of the Pie You Have to Take a Bigger Bite. The title can be found on Amazon under books and Kindle reads. I co-wrote the book after recommendations from friends, who are also substitute teachers like me. After reading the book many teachers felt hopeful and encouraged they could continue to mold young minds without fear of financial scarcity where there is not enough money available from the job to do what needs to be done. As you know lack of spending power is costly both inside and outside the classroom; teachers who are scarcely paid cannot perform at their best. And why can’t substitute teaching be a viable career option? Why should substitutes have to look for additional jobs outside the home away from family while giving back to the field of education? Substitute teachers need alternatives to keep pace with the ever-increasing cost of living, savings for emergencies, etc. because insufficient funds impact every facet of life in a big way. Maybe you will find the book useful as a catalyst for any substitute teacher that loves his or her role, but is having trouble making ends meet or who wants more from this great profession! Please contact me for additional information about getting this useful financial tool out to your readers. Sincerely!
