How to Make a Grand Per Month as a Substitute Teacher

Substitute teachers are needed every day to fill in for full-time teachers who are sick, attending a conference or other event or on maternity leave. You may not have given much thought to substitute teachers, but did you know that it is possible to make a grand or more a month as a substitute teacher?

This is the perfect job for those who need a flexible schedule, especially stay at home parents whose own children are in school.

Qualifications to Be a Substitute Teacher

Qualifications vary by state and district, but in Kimm’s district, one only needs to have a B.A. from an accredited

Initial Investment

What are the start up costs of the opportunity? Does it require a lot of capital, time or both?

Make an Extra $1,000 a Month by Painting

Have you ever helped someone else paint their room? Or, maybe you currently own a place and after redoing every room in the house, you now have some pretty good experience with painting. Whatever the case may be, if you feel like you’re efficient and pay attention to detail, you most likely could earn yourself an extra $1,000 a month!

My Experience

Let me be the first to tell you that there is definitely a demand for good painters out there. My wife and I bought our house almost a year ago and we’re still not done painting! There are still about 7 doors to paint, and I don’t even want to talk about trim anymore. Since I’m not a professional painter, finishing all of these painting projects takes a ton of time, and when I do finally finish, it doesn’t really look as good as what I had hoped.

Making a Grand Per Month to Stay Out of Debt

The following is a post from Melissa at Mom’s Plans

Making a grand per month can do many wonderful things for you and your family—you can save for retirement, save for your child’s college education, or use the money to become debt free. However, sometimes extra money is needed just to make your budget work.

The adage is to spend less than you earn, but what if your earnings are too small to meet your expenses? What if you are frugal, but you are in a low paying position such as a paid internship or a graduate assistantship and you just can’t make ends meet? What if you have unexpected expenses such as medical bills or an expensive car repair, and you don’t have enough money saved to pay cash?

In many cases, the option is to use credit cards, which can start the downward cycle of credit card
