Pros: great experience, opportunity to work, teach lessons, clock in and out daily
Cons: unpredictable timing of pay
I believe the Department of Education is a great place to work. It allows for growth and opportunity unlike any other district. As a Substitute teacher I've gained valuable experience working with various school cultures servicing diverse populations. I have taught every grade level within the public school system. That experience alone speaks volumes. Though, the Substitute Teacher is considered part-time work the pay is Per-Diem. Which means each school is responsible for paying you. This is the downfall about this job. As the rate of pay is at the hands of the payroll secretaries, there will be instances where compensation may not be rendered. So, the job requires a Sub. to be proactive and organized. Literally, keeping track of every job number and Secretary information to ensure timely compensation.
