In a post on her Down to Earth blog, best-selling author Jane Green describes power moms as being, "The first volunteer for classroom duties. She's the Secret Storyteller who shows up not just with a great book, but with home-made double chocolate chip fudge caramel whirl brownies to boot".

A logical extension of this classroom-centered enthusiasm among power moms, then, would be a career in teaching. Becoming a substitute teacher is a logical first step for power moms who've never served as teachers. Requirements to become a sub vary from region to region. States like California require substitutes to hold a bachelor's degree, while Wyandotte County, Mich., allows substitutes who never graduated from college, but hold credit for 90 or more hours at an institute of higher education.

For power moms who hold a master's degree, teaching positions at postsecondary institutions like community college are open, and those with doctorates can find jobs as professors at four-year institutions. While subs have the most flexible schedules, professors aren't far behind. Postsecondary educators worked an average of 15 to 22 hours per week, with part-time (adjunct) professors working fewer hours.
