Subs : how much do you get paid yearly...

Assuming you work a lot.
This year I made a whooping $6000

Just to be classified as poor I should be making $12000.
So, I will be a Resource Inclusion Para but for bilingual classes K to 5th. The kids seem to be more em... tamed. More docile. Seems easy huh? I believe salary will be roughly $20,000. By 3:30 I'm out so it's even earlier than a substitute.

How do you all live off of what you make?????? Haven't posted in ages... circumstances in my life pushed me to sign up for something more challenging. Oh and since I'm moving from classroom to classroom at least I'll get to pee.

Ohana
I'm so happy for you
Those are the sub jobs I always loved. That is one I'd come out of retirement for
Have a great year !
I think I made less than $5000.
Thank God it's supplemental

I work almost every school day and paid extra for long term jobs, so about $15,000 combined with all my districts. I also do a lot of focus groups, sports betting, and research studies on the side that bring that up to about $18,000. But the way I see it, a regular teacher after taxes, health insurance, pension, union dues, etc.. only brings home about $25,000 Net. Therefore, we really dont do much worse than the newer full time teachers.

Let's see. If I worked all days I am able to (120 as a retired teacher) at $90 a day... around $10,00. Helps make up for the fact that I took early retirement.

I don't think anyone could live on a substitute's pay, even if they work all 180 days per year. My income supplements my husband's. I chose the job so I could stay home with my kids most of the time. My kids are grown but I still do it because I like it, but I don't do it every day! I'd go nuts.

If I worked all 180 days I'd make $29,000 before taxes and you can't live off that in CA.

True Sublime. But my point is that many people cannot live on their own from many jobs. Some full time regular teachers tell me they wouldn't be able to live on their own without a secondary spouse income, so it is not just us subs who struggle. I dont think there are many jobs that are easy to come by that pay enough to survive on your own easily. It is very sad and shows the true state of the economy. As someone else stated elsewhere on this forum, making $27/day in 1960 would be $175/day now. However, those same school districts only pay about $100/day now. Cost of living significantly outweights average salary across the US and its a huge problem that continues to get worse.

If I worked every day Iíd make 21,600. Nowhere near enough to live in the CA Bay Area. For us it has been a way to supplement my husbandís income and help out. I work between 100-120 days per year. Allows me flexibility to help with the in-laws.

I make $100.00/day so $19,000/year from subbing. I make more per year at big box home improvement store. So in the end I make about what a first year teacher makes in the area.

I sub in multiple districts so that the PD days and breaks are not at the same time. I end up working about 190 days subbing. Since the school district calendars are published in advance I know when I am off and can work at the home improvement store. I also can get overtime in the summer so that helps out a lot.

If something were to happen to either source of income I would be in trouble and quickly need to replace the income lost. Between the two jobs I make enough to live on; not enough to get rich.

If I worked every single day, which I donít, Iíd make $18,500. I probably make around $16,500 b/c I work quite a bit. It supplements my husbandís salary and my pension (I retired after 30 years), and thereís never been a month yet that weíve said, ďWhat are we gonna do with all this extra money?Ē

I made around $12,000 when I subbed, and that was 27 years ago! I worked 170 of 175 days, and I had a teaching degree.

I met a certified teacher who said she worked 150 days last year and made about 14 or 15k, working for about 180 a day before taxes. I donít see how you guys work so much. I sub in several districts and itís always dead around Xmas and spring break. Itís also slow in Sept and there is hardly anything the last two weeks of the school year. I tutor to even things out. That said, itís extremely hard to get by on sub pay.
