What do you get paid? Since I started subbing in the fall of 2009 the pay hasn't been raised. It's $100/day and $50/half day. I know that's good, but I live in North Dakota and we have such low unemployment that I really think the pay needs to be raised because in some areas in the state you can make $15/hr working at McDonald's. You can't go anywhere without seeing hiring signs. It's not that I want to work in retail or the food business but if the pay is higher it might not be too bad. If my husband and I were a bit younger we'd be smart to get Commercial Driver's Licenses and work in the oil field driving trucks-they can make over $100,000/year.

Sub. pay is $80 a day where I am in Texas if you are degreed and certified - $75 if you just have a 4 year degree. Our pay has been the same since 2007 when I started.

North Texas here---$96/day and $46/half day. I work for one of the highest-payimg districts in the area.

ETA: That's the pay for certified teachers. I've no idea what it is for non-certified folks, nor do I know how long it's been at that rate. I've only been subbing since October.

$84 per full day in my district. It was $90, but budget woes caused a "10% cut" to $80. You do the math. At least we have been partially restored to $84. Some of the surrounding districts pay a bit more, some a bit less. We work for a third-party company, but the district still sets the rate of pay. Because we are not employees of the school district, we don't have a deduction for the retirement system. No union dues, either.

my district pays $82/day, reduced $3/day in 2011-2012. A neighboring district pays $90--I'm probably signing up there.
Feels odd because I worked for the low paying district before retiring, but...

I live in PA and work for 4 districts. The one is $80/day, then $85/day, $90/day, $100/day and the last one pays $105/day. This is in the suburbs of Philly.

I think Philly public pays $130ish but not exactly sure. I think it's like $20 an hour so maybe $140

I'm north of Pittsburgh and the pay is between $75.00 and $90.00. It has not increased in over 10 years. Most districts are near the low end of that range, one district has a sub incentive plan where you can earn increases for subbing so many days.

I'm a bit south of Pittsburgh, (guess we are neighbors, Subman) and the district I go to begins at $85, increases to $90 after 45 days and tops out at $95 after 90 days. That's pretty standard around here. It's been that amount for the entire 4 years that I have done this.

The district that I work in is $100 per day, or $50 half-day, $120 per day after 20 days for long term. I have two other districts surrounding me, one pays the same as my district, the other pays $130 per day. I stick to the district that I am in because my kids are there, and I am well known enough that I get plenty of work. I am actually starting my second long term position any day now (maternity leave), and I think that will last until the end of the year.

I'm here in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles and our daily rate with the LAUSD is $173.04 a day. We are paid well here, but the housing cost is very high. There are also many teachers who have been laid off and are now subbing. I'm not a laid off teacher, but was hired as a sub in 1996, and have stayed with subbing.

We get $100.00 a day and 1/2 that for 1/2 days in south central Ohio. There's a lot of competition for jobs; subbing & non-subbing & they're thinking of closing down the city board office. A few classes are held there. Yes, there are money woes & teachers will be let go.This is a very recessed area; period. There have been some layoffs before. And go figure; we just got AESOP last fall.
I don't care too much for it at all; prefer the former sub caller. Too many hitches in system. I'm looking & have been looking for other work, plus teaching jobs. (A lot of competition both in & out of teaching for jobs.) Sad to do this; but seem to have no choice. DH gets small pension; not much; we both have health problems & are over 50. Little retirement now; too.

Ranges from $97.50 to $159.50. Higher pay is for SIG schools that have a longer school day. I don't do long term as I am not credentialed in CA and have no desire to go back to school at this point in my life.

I'm in southeast PA, most districts around me pay $100 a day and have been at that since at least 2006. Judging by a lot of responses here, I suppose it's not too bad, but still hard to live off.

Indiana - Districts around here are $70 - $75 a day, and it doesn't make a difference if you have a teaching license. In fact, some districts around here only require a high school diploma.

55 or 60 like others have said - that isn't really minimum wage because we have to get there early, load students on buses or cars (and it is freezing!) and stay after. Not to mention being treated like a pile of poo. No wonder subs don't stick to the job.

East Central Ohio: $75/day, $37.50/half day. The area is still in a recession even though they have dropped the unemployment rate in Ohio; I see no difference in the number of jobs advertised in this part of Ohio. And I'm still hearing they are swamped with applications. I apply for anything I can do that's full-time with benefits. I love working with the kids, but the inconsitency and weeks with no work during breaks, low pay, and lack of benefits leave me no choice. I'm thankful I have it to make a little money, but it's also stressful. For instance, I've been afraid to sub because of the flu and not having any health benefits. There's been a big number of people being hospitalized and even recently a woman about my age was found dead, and they think it was flu related.

$100 per day in a city of 6000 people in south-central Nebraska. We haven't had a raise in several years and I believe we are due. Agricultural economy is very strong here. Unemployment is very low. I would like to see the rate go to $120. We'll see.

Here in West Texas it is 75 a day and 37.50 for half day. 85 on Fridays and after 30 days it becomes 85 a day and 95 on Fri. after 90 days it becomes 95 a day and 105 on Fridays.
Our economy is doing very well, so I think we deserve a raise. We have a lot of families moving in here and there are more kids in the classroom.

That is awful pay for the demands of the job, but I guess they can justify it for the lower cost of living in your area. You would probably be better off working retail.

Subs in my district got $120/day without a state teaching certification and $140/day with a state certification (has to be AK; they don't accept out-of-state certifications... not even for classroom teachers). I don't know what half-day rates are.

However, because of a recent overload of sub applications (there are over 13 thousand applicants looking for teaching jobs - almost all of whom have applied to be subs when they didn't find jobs, PLUS the people that were subbing that weren't certified), now the district only allows AK certified subs. This limitation happened this year in about October/early November.

I have been subbing since 2006 and the district I work in starts off at $115 a day and that includes teachers who have a teaching certificate and people who only have a sub certificate. Every 20 days we get an $5 increase over the school year. If we are lucky enough to be asked to fill in for a long term position it is around $240 a day but that is after 10 days working in the classroom in a row. I always look for the long term positions if I can. Not all districts in the Chicago land area pays that well. Some start off at $90 to $100 a day and long terms could only pay $110 a day.

I don't find it right when the district let's the sub certified teachers fill in for long term positions. These people have NO teaching degree and have no idea how to educate students the proper way. I don't think they should have substitute teachers who are not certified teachers to work in the schools. With the economy the way it is now, with lack of jobs for teachers and hundreds of people getting their teaching degree. It is only for the best interest of the schools and districts to get qualified people to be working this positions.

Doov3, I disagree with your assumption that just because a person doesn't hold a teaching certificate that they automatically don't know how to educate students the proper way, and that they should not be allowed to work in schools. Many of us who don't have a teaching degree are educated, and have the natural skill to be able to get through to students and teach them. Everybody has differen skills and abilities. Not every teacher with a teaching certificate is necessarily a good teacher either.

A lot of times the longer you teach the better teacher you become rather you have a teaching certificate or not. We invested in our education just like teachers have and none of us, teachers or not, got a degree in substitute teaching. Most are subbing because of the way the economy is, regardless of our degree major, and deserve to be able to sub. If we weren't capable we wouldn't last too long being a sub teacher. Now if you said that you don't believe that people who didn't go past high school should be able to sub teach then I would agree with that.

I do agree that not every teacher is a good teacher or at least knows how to teach. I have seen a lot of inexperienced teachers out there that don't have a clue on what they are doing, nor do they know how to control their classrooms.

Yes everyone has different skills and abilities and that is how we find what we enjoy doing in life. I don't feel that school districts should be hiring non certified teachers at this point of the economy when there are too many teachers looking for work who have a teaching degree. They are the ones who have spend the last 4-5 years getting a degree and their certification to teach. So use the qualified people to better your schools and your districts to raise the scores on standard tests and not place a person who has NO educational background in the classroom to do any long term positions. The districts shouldn't have people with acting degrees and business degrees teaching our students. They have NO idea on what to do besides read a teacher's manual and go through the plans that were left behind. It is like having a teacher going to a doctor's office and filling in for a doctor who has taken the day off. They are not qualified for the position and the patient is not getting the best care possible. This is just another reason why the scores on standardize tests a low. We have non qualified and certified people just going into the classrooms filling in for teachers and the students are not getting the best education during that time.

Some districts in my area only hire certified teachers as subs and that is how it should be. As for long term positions they should be only offered to the certified teachers who have experience teaching that grade level.
