Summer break is kind of bittersweet to me. Though I am excited about the time off, I have to find a job during the summer. Am I the only one who has to work during the summer? Anyone else out there who works during the break? And if so, what do you think is the best place to work during summer break?

Definitely not the only one! I too need to work during the summer and currently do not relish what I will be doing...(not education related). For those of you who work in public schools there is this option which could be a great opportunity:

It's the National Park Service Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program which hires teachers at National Parks for the summer season then has them integrate an NPS educational activity during National Park week in their own classroom.

I'd like to hear some of the other options out there though!

Hi Cheri,

It really depends on your personal need, but many teachers gravitate to educational types of positions. I would suggest either educational positions, or positions connected to your hobbies. If you need a break, but have to work, you might not want to be with students during your vacation.
