I live in Carlsbad, which is about 2.5 hours sw of
Alamogordo. I have been subbing since I moved here last
year. The pay here stinks, but then again, they let anyone
without a serious criminal record substitute as long as they
are 18, or maybe 19. Pay last year was $50 a day. Thats it!
It went up to $65 this year. I find this frustrating because
I moved from Iowa, who only let certified teachers
substitute, and pay was anywhere from $100-$150 a day. As a
certified teacher, I find it unfair that the pay is the
same, but that's just me. Anyway, good luck!
