Teachers Rejoice – Schools (Almost) Out for Summer! So What’s Next?

Summer Jobs for Teachers

For some students and teachers this date cannot come soon enough. The end of the school year is not just about being done, but it is about change, completion, endings and new beginnings. Some students move on to the next grade while some move on to college or the next stage of their lives. The thing about education is that we really never stop learning, but while school stops for the summer many teachers look for ways to make extra income. There are a number of opportunities out there, but one of the most lucrative and fun could be going on a European Tour.

EF International – Teachers Can Travel to Europe and Make Money in the Summer

In 2014, 2015 and 2016 I was a chaperone on a European trip. I’ve been to Venice, Rome, Italy, Spain, Munich, Austria and a number of other countries and places all on EF Tours. A good friend of mine who is a teacher signs students up for a summer trip and for every student that goes, he can take a friend for free or he can get paid a set fee. There are some summers where he has made $15,000 in extra revenue all by taking a bunch of students to Europe! EF International’s summer programs offer the chance to earn money while you travel.
