Keep your brain sharp with fun things to enjoy during Summer!

Summer break brings many opportunities for teachers from R&R to learning opportunities. Summer itself seems to breathe a little extra life into us with its longer hours and extra dose of vitamin D. Keep your brain sharp and prepare yourself for the next school year by enjoying these fun summer activities.

Reading Outside

It may not seem very exciting, but there is something magical about reading outside. You get all of the benefit of reading combined with enjoying the beautiful weather which summer provides. You will head into the next school year better read and possibly a little red.

Camp Counselor

No one becomes a teacher for the pay which means working with young minds is most likely their top priority. If that is true for you, then working as a camp counselor is a great way to spend your summer. You get to enjoy the great outdoors with the benefit of teaching at the same time.

Learn a New Skill

One of the greatest benefits of being a substitute teacher is that you are not tied down to any one subject. The summer is a great time to take up a new hobby or learn a new skill that could be both entertaining and pad your resumé.

Work the Beach

This may seem unfair to people who don’t live on the coasts, but there are actually beaches everywhere in the country. There are more beach jobs than just lifeguard, and many that allow you to interact with people, especially children. What would be better than being paid to spend your day at the beach; plus it is a seasonal gig so you will never have any conflicts with substituting.


If you are looking for fun things to enjoy during summer there are few activities more fun than traveling. Traveling anywhere does not only offer unlimited fun, but it also offers learning opportunities which you can use in your profession.

Summer is a fun time for everyone, but especially a substitute teacher. It is a great time to brush up on skills or enjoy a new experience. When you are ready to get back to work in the fall make sure to contact us to maximize your substituting opportunities.
