Have you considered being a nanny? You could probably find a job with daytime hours that has decent pay in the nanny world. Also to supplement subbing income you could look for a job at a place like Sylvan or Huntington learning center…those places usually close around 7 or so so you would still have most of your evening free to be with your husband. Good luck!

Unfortunately the teaching outlook isn’t too great these days in most areas. I have a teaching degree and just graduated. I know many schools that are getting rid of teachers instead of hiring. Besides subbing you may want to look into other careers, thats what I plan on doing. When I started going to school for teaching  I didn’t expect it to be so hard to get a teaching job. Good luck! 🙂

I have had a great time teaching in some un-conventional locations. I have my degree in home ec education (of which there are NO jobs any more becuase it has been cut almost accross the board) 

I am curently teaching and tutoring for a community college, which is a blast! I have helped out at head start and a testing center which was great! look for positions that need teaching degrees but arent also teachers too. Accademic advising positions at colleges, school-life coaches in public schools, long term subbing, even some museums hire teachers to handle thier school groups. just a though. Best of luck! I know the job search world is rough

@dayl20:  My husband’s a teacher, and right now is a near-impossible time to be looking for a teaching job for the upcoming year.  Most schools did all their hiring for next year in late spring/early summer, and staff is set already. 

Something to possibly look for in addition to the subbing, is temp fill in for maternity leaves?  Also, day care and nursery school if your degree would apply.  A couple of my teacher friends spent years in nursery school before they were able to get into a regular school. 

I also agree with PPs to try nannying as well.
