    Question Best ideas for working from home

    Ok ladies...
    Here is your challenge:
    I would LOVE to try to work from home. I don't want to be away from my kiddos anymore!
    What are the best work from home ideas that you have done yourself? or heard or read about??
    Thanks for the ideas in advance.

    P.S. I have a degree in elementary education... but am willing to try almost anything.

    I currently work from home as a teacher in an online school. Online schools are becoming more and more common. Mine is k-12, I teach 7th and 8th grade. We employ a number of k-6 teachers.

    Check with your state's dept of ed and see what is available in your state.

    You can also apply to write curriculum for the larger, corporate curriculum providers such as k-12, kc distance learning, etc. I don't know if any of them are hiring right now but you can check it out. I have done this also from home and it is kind of fun.

    If those options don't pan out there are many online tutoring services out there that you might apply to.

    Check out www.wahm.com for more ideas. Hope that helps!

    I vote for the internet school also...
    MY oldest did internet charter school and had a teacher that worked from home.

    I did home day care for years before my 3rd baby came along.

    Have you looked in to your local art centers?
    One of the gals I know teaches classes for school age kids.
    Its only a couple of days a month and she enjoys it.

    Don't count tutoring out...you can charge a pretty penny and parents WILL pay.

    good luck.

    other ideas involve more sales (the 'party' style) but i have friends who swear by them and have been quite sucessful--arbonnne, usborne books at home (one friend does entirely online).

    there are other but i am drawing blanks after a sleepless night and the kids are chirping.

    tutoring you could set your own hours...
    have you looked into tutoring centers?
    the one around us is always looking for somebody to teach and own the darn place...

    You couldn't do that from home but maybe you could do most of it from home
