Summer Job

11 posts in this topic

I work at a middle school as an instructional assistant, and in another month, I won't have any income for six weeks. Most businesses won't hire someone for only six weeks. Plus the fact that I have fibromyalgia. Last summer I worked at my husband's factory for four weeks. I have never been in so much pain in my life! We've been struggling this past year, so we haven't been able to prepare for it like we had hoped.

Any suggestions?

Could you nanny for someone with elementary-aged kids? How about tutor someone over the summer?

I know a girl who is lining up families that are willing to pay her to watch their kids once/week for SAH or WAHMs. I'm hiring her to watch my kids once/week while I WAH.

Have you looked into the summer positons available for the local school districts? I know in my district the Pre-K special education programs run most of the summer.

Another idea is to get permanent part time job where the hours increase during the summer and decrease during the school year. Where I live this would include theme parks (Disneyland, California Adventure, Knotts Berry Farm), Blockbuster, food service (not recommended for Celiacs)

I've thought about tutoring, but it's a crapshoot whether I'd get enough clients to get me thru the summer, but I am considering giving it a try. I didn't know SAH or WAHMs hired nannies.

Our school district has summer school programs, but my school is year-round. Summer school starts before I am done with the school year.

No theme parks nearby, and I did work part-time for 5 years at a pharmacy just to have a job during the breaks. But it became too hard on me physically---all the standing and looking down to count pills (lots of issues with upper back and neck).

Thanks Cheri A and Phyllis28 for replying! I really appreciate your trying to help :P

Your welcome. Keep us posted about what you try. Maybe you could do some tutoring and some kid-sitting.

My mom is a preschool teacher and she tutors a little during the summer. She also has them break her salary down so that she still gets some pay during the summer.

This will be my first year hiring someone to watch my kids for a day. I'm going out on a limb and trying to be positive that I'll be busy with my WAH job. If I don't, then I'll use the time to clean, cook, shop in peace. :lol:

Your welcome.

I'll toss out another couple of more options that may or may not work for you:

1) Look into transfering to a school with traditional calendar. Summer employment will be much easier to locate.

2) Apply at employement agencies that supply temporary help. These jobs would be mainly clerical (Examples are filling, accounting clerk and secretarial). The first agency that comes to my mind is Kelly Girl. I don't know if they are still in business or in your area. You should be able to find names of your local agencies advertising in the want ads in the paper. They will be advertising for full time postions but you can call and ask if they also place temporary.

The tutoring and kid-sitting is a possibility. Unfortunately, spreading out the salary is only available to teachers, not assistants, since we are paid hourly.

1) I work with hearing-impaired kids. I go where they go.

2) I should try that. Don't know why I didn't think of it! Darn brain fog hasn't lifted completely :P But that's why we're all here---to help each other figure things out :lol:

I have to say that I LOVED nannying for a summer. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun, and very rewarding. I watched some really good kids though. Probably helped :)

BTW, SAH/WAHM = stay at home/work at home mom i'm assuming?? just checkin'

Hope you find something :D

Yes, SAH/WAHM = stay at home/work at home mom. :)

GREAT idea about the temporary employment agencies, Phyllis!! Why didn't I think of that too? I did that while I was between jobs and getting ready to move. I loved the time I spent "temping".

Summer camps might also be an option....day camps.....in our area, some hire people just to pick up and transport the campers.....

Maybe a local library --- or even newspaper delivery....a lot of the kids who have routes during the school year are away or cannot fulfill their routes during the summer months.

Good luck!

    • These results, assuming you have been on a gluten free diet since the original tests in 2015, likely mean you are still being exposed to gluten which is why you still feel shitty.  Go see a GI or go on a non processed gluten free no going out to eat strict diet for 3 months and see how you feel. 
    • Kitty!  Thank you so much!  Reading these words is so reassuring....  I've had a horrid weekend googling 'white spot on tongue'  - so many horror stories about such a symptom.   I then read a few more articles which were more balanced and gave other things - such as teeth grinding and sharp teeth being a cause, which for my sanity's sake I'm trying to focus on!  Esp. as said sore is remaining stubbornly on my tongue! I must thank you for the links, too. Fascinating: In one it talks about 'Crazy muscle cramps in the form of stabbing pains in toes, calves, arches of feet, and backs of legs.' The Deficiency: Magnesium, calcium, and potassium. "If it's happening frequently, it's a tip-off that you're lacking in these,"  That's absolutely incredible - I never knew that, as at night I am being woken by these pains in my toes and feet.  Thank you so much.  I did used to supplement these things and have stopped.  I will look into this and try to eat more healthily and supplement too in the short to medium term while I recover.   I'm off to see my doctor tomorrow so having this information that you have sent in mind will be so helpful.   My tongue is the weirdest colour - my dentist spotted it straight away and said, 'Wow, you are anemic'.  So if my ferritin is low - which I know it is  - I'm probably running other deficiencies too.  Thank you so much again for taking the time to post.

    • If you need any suggestions for gluten free equivalents just ask. Lots of different opinions on foods here.
    • Thank you so much for saying that. I don't deal well with unexpected things and getting a phone call saying hey we want you to go to the hospital for an endoscopy has thrown me for a loop. I googled celiac and everything mentioned cancers, chirosis, and lots of scary stuff. It caused me to go into a panic. 
    • Having celiac means you have to buy brand b instead of brand a. A diagnosis for most people just means they have to go gluten free. Think of it in phases. phase 1 - eat all of your favorite stuff with wheat, barley and rye until after the official diagnosis. phase 2 - eat stews and simple foods until your symptoms go away. phase 3 - eat whatever you want as long as it's gluten free. There's lots of great tasting equivalents to the stuff you're used to. Barilla pasta, Canyon Bakehouse bread, Betty Crocker cakes.   Oh, and the endoscopy is easy peasy.
