30 Summer Job Ideas For Teachers

It’s the time of year that teachers start to consider what the summer ahead will bring. Winter cabin fever is setting in, and we’re dreaming of long, sunny days. Teachers are fortunate that we have the option of stretching out our 9 month salary over 12 months, which means we can receive paychecks year around even though we aren’t teaching year around, but in addition we’re lucky because while receiving that summer paycheck, we’re able to take on a summer job to supplement our income. Here’s a list of great summer jobs for teachers:
