Being a substitute teacher would be a great way to try out teaching and get a feel for the school system. There is always a need for more subs! Most states allow you to become a sub if you have a bachelor's degree. You can work in a variety of schools in your area as well as multiple different grades to find what you like and don't like. You will also build connections with administrators and teachers who can help you as you move into being a teacher and be good mentors.

Hi Yera and thank you for you question! It's great that you're considering getting some experience working in a school before pursuing your teacher credential. There are many different school job positions that can give you valuable experience and help you figure out if teaching is the right path for you.

One great option is to apply for a job as a teacher's assistant. This role typically involves working one-on-one with students who need extra support or helping out in the classroom with tasks like grading papers or preparing lesson materials. You'll get a chance to observe how teachers interact with their students and learn some of the basics of lesson planning and classroom management.

Another option to consider is a job as a substitute teacher. This can be a great way to get experience teaching different subjects and age groups, without committing to a full-time teaching position. You'll also have the flexibility to work as much or as little as you want.

If you're interested in working with students outside of the classroom, you might consider a job as a coach or after-school program coordinator. This can be a great way to get to know students and build relationships with them outside of the academic setting.

Ultimately, the best school job position for you will depend on your interests and goals. I encourage you to think about what kind of experience you want to gain and what skills you want to develop, and then explore job openings that align with those interests. Also, talk to people in the field to get a better sense of what might be a good fit for you. I hope this helps. Best of luck to you!

Special education teacher aides are in high demand and you need little to no experience to get started. My sister currently works at her son's elementary school. She was a stay at home mom for five years taking care of my nephew so when she decided she wanted to go to work, it was difficult for her to find something where she could help people without having a college degree just yet. Her only experience before that was assisting teachers in classrooms at a private school. It's hard work but she really enjoys it and most places require some experience so it's one way to get some hours in for you.
