We all know teachers (at least in most public schools in most areas) are underpaid. A lot of the teachers I know look for part-time gigs in the summer and while a decade ago looking for summer work often resulted in retail sales and restaurant positions, today there are part-time telecommuting opportunities that teachers could take advantage of for making that extra bit of income in the summer months.
Here are 2 opportunities I found with a quick search:

As a teacher you have a lot of knowledge, an educational background, some super-mad skills, and the summer off from your full-time daily routine at school.
