I am fortunate enough to be a WAHM (work at home mom). I have said this many times before, that I consider myself very fortunate to be able to use my degrees, and work from home. Even a few years ago, this would not have been possible.
In my teaching position, I actually have 3 roles I perform for the company. I teach, of course, but I also have a team of teachers that I help to navigate through the company. I give them feedback on their observations, an.d I point them in the right direction should problems arise. My third role is as a substitute. So many hours a week, I am on-call. This means that I have to sit at my computer in case they need me to go in and teach. During this time, I can do pretty much whatever I want, as long as they can get a hold of me over our messaging system. I can visit my favorite sites and blogs-in a nutshell, I am getting paid to surf!!!
There is a down-side to this last position, however. Boredom. Saturdays are a prime example. I am on-call from 8-12. Four hours is a long time to sit and do nothing. I hope to not have this position for much longer. Eventually, I want to be a supervisor, but those jobs are few and far between, and I haven't paid my dues yet. In the meantime, I am going to try to move over to monitoring teachers. I think I have a lot to bring to that position, and it would move me in the right direction.
