Would I be better off taking a student teaching position over the summer, or babysitting and continuing my other not school major related job for an Elementary Education Major?

I applied for a student teaching summer position with the local school district, when a former employer offered me a position to Baby sit their 3 children over the summer. I will be entering my Junior Year in College, and while I would like to get some good experiences on my resume, the babysitting pays more, the hours are better, and it is more flexible. It will also allow me to maintain my position at a local gym, which will give me a free membership. #resume-building #elementary-education #education

Hi there! You've asked a great question, one without a clear answer - but there are a few different ways you could think about it. If you are working hard to pay off student debt/loans and the money will help you get there faster, that would be something to strongly consider. However, have specific experience in your desired career will absolutely give you a leg up in the hiring process post college and could potentially help you build relationships that will help find you a role once you have graduated. Consider if you could teach and then babysit as needed - it may help fill those financial gaps! Wishing you all the best!
