  • Try applying at the schools. I know a lot of schools are cutting back, but so many need the extra help that they might be willing to hire an aide to help instead of a certified teacher. Just a thought!

  • I'd say you get a job and do what you have to do. No one that I know of has a job like that and if you need money then you take what you can get.
