Substitute teaching

Our apartment managers are a married couple and Michelle, the wife, is a high school history teacher in a nearby city. I was talking to her yesterday and it turns out she had been a substitute teacher for this school district and she had many positive things to say about it. I had asked her how frequently she was called and she got called on OFTEN. I asked that if she had a free and open schedule (like I do) would she get work five days a week and she said that once you build up your reputation and students and teachers get to know you, then yes, you could end up working five days a week. That was really great news to hear so once I get in the classroom I can finally start contributing to the family income.
