One of my favorite parts of teaching is summer break. After a year-long focus on my students (and all the connected work that comes along with them!), it’s nice to take some time to myself to relax. Use these best ways to make extra money in the summer to shore up your bank account or save up for something special.
If you don’t get paid during the summer, like some teachers (particularly adjunct college instructors) then take heed. Even with extremely careful financial planning, the summer drought can be painful without an extra source of income. For those teachers who are paid through the summer months, the summer can be an excellent time to get ahead on your financial goals by putting in some extra hours and bringing in new income. Regardless, I think all teachers should make an effort to bring in money during the summer, doing something that is not tutoring!
