Re: Substitute Teaching: input please?
Beth Clymo

    I sub in Lovingto, with my BS degree. I get $75 a day. I have been
    other places and they get a lot whole lot more. With out my degree,
    I would only get $45 without any school hours, $55 with an AA
    In Hobbs a sub with a degree gets $55, non degree gets $50. What's
    up with that? Texas is a better paying job for Subs and for
    teachers...Try there!
