What is a good job for a teacher to do over the summer?
I am looking for a summer job that pays decently, isn't too taxing, and is tailor-made for teachers who have the summer off. I have taught for a few years, and so far the only job that fits that description is bartending at a summer resort. I'd like to not do that anymore. What else is out there?

Try starting a tutor program. Many parents look for tutors for their kids, if they did poorly on their report card. You can get payed alot! Or maybe... try working at a summer school.

My favorite job over the summer is to work in a teacher supply store. It's a lot more laid back than teaching summer school and I get the opportunity to meet other teachers who come in over the summer to buy stuff. PLUS you have access to a ton of teaching materials and have plenty of time to browse them.
