I just stopped working. I took a year off with DS then worked 1 day a week for a school district (which was really working 1 day a week at the school then a few hours another day at home & checking e-mail at least 2x a week from home)

It ended up being too much, though. I mean, it was nice to go in only 1 day....but that's all I got paid for. I *had* to do the other stuff because there was no planning time while I was there (hence working a few hours) & if I didn't read e-mails I had issues when I went back in - like parents would be upset that I didn't respond to their e-mails, there were a few litigious issues with IEPs and I had to be available to answer questions & stuff....

It ended up not being worth it for the money or the time involved - after taxes & day care I was making like $50 a week. I could charge that for 1 hour of tutoring or ABA around here.

 that sucks.

yah i would want more than 1 day a week, but 40 hours per week is kind of alot.

Right. Me too. I gotta be able to get stuff for birthdays and Christmas. I hate feeling helpless around holidays because I'm broke.
