    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!
