I was wondering if anyone knew of a great idea for a school teacher that did not necessarily want to return to the classroom. I am thinking of teaching jobs that might be off the beaten path or hard to find in this area. san antonio, hill country, etc. just wanting to generate some ideas about where to look

Google Pearson. They are always looking for teachers to write/edit content for testing materials.

Also, all of the tutoring places (Huntington, Sylvan, etc.) are always looking for qualified tutors.

You might also check with some of the homeschooling organizations, like FEAST. They often use teachers collaboratively for lessons best done in groups, or outside their scope of knowledge.

Thank you! Does anyone know of any other organizations with homeschooling coops? Also, I know that sometimes kids are school through their gym if they are really involved in a gymnastics program. Sometimes it is called TOPPS. Does anyone know anything about this? I was also wondering if anyone had any info on educational programs at seaworld, the childrens museum, etc.

You could also consider the "visiting teacher" program for kids with medical conditions that do not allow them to attend classroom studies. That would mean that you go and teach the kid where they are (home, hospital, etc) vs classroom.

Default teaching alternativesI

Hey kinderteacher .... your post was some time ago so I'm not sure this is still pertains ... I taught for 15 years and am looking for "Other employment". I am limited to a small town community (30,000) and will be lucky to find a job making 10$ an hour. I am going to go back to school and get an L.V.N. ... the salary isn't what teaching is but you don't have the stress involved either. With nursing you can branch out to all sorts of different areas and work in various places (nursing home, hospital, camps, school, dr. offices). I have to stay in my community and this seems like the best alternative. It blows my mind with a degree, I can't make over 10 an hour. A teaching degree just doesn't transfer ... maybe it would in a city like San Antonio.
