Hello and Welcome!
I Help Teachers Escape the Classroom By Starting Their Own Businesses.
Why Escape the Classroom?
The odds are great that you fit into one of these three main categories:
- You need to get out of teaching ASAP
- You plan to stay, but you have got to find something that will supplement your teacher’s salary
- You are retired, or about to be, and like number two above, you need more money coming in.
Create Your Plan B
You might be looking for a way to hedge your bets with your pension plan. It’s smart to have a steady stream of income that doesn’t depend on politicians or The Fed.
You might be looking for a completely new way to earn an income.
Whatever your reason for not wanting to rely completely on your pension income, you can read about Wealthy Affiliate and why it’s a great Plan B, and a perfect fit for teachers here.
After all, most of us don’t dream about spending our retirement years subbing.
I went back to school and got my teaching credential as an older adult. I worked hard for that degree. In the process, I worked as a tutor, and it propelled me into a teaching credential.
You already know that the teaching profession is about lots more than just teaching. I found myself in that 50% group of new teachers you may have read about. I was ready to bail before my first five years were over.
However, I had spent lots of time earning those pieces of paper, had lots of student loan debt, and a family to support.
Besides, I liked the teaching part, I just couldn’t stand the rest.
You know what I mean:
- Disrespect from students and parents
- No respect for the teaching profession
- Incredible amounts of responsibility with no authority
The list goes on, but you experience it for yourself every day.
Instead of leaving, I got another degree.
I have to admit, I did check for other opportunities from time to time.
With the growth of the internet, and the sky-rocketing virtual business opportunities that exist today, it’s a whole new and exciting world for teachers!
Why Escaping The Classroom?
You’ve spent years molding your plans to fit the expectations, and whims of others.
Is it time to call your own shots?
You’ll find information in two main sections here:
- Alternative Jobs
- Teaching Concerns
I’m constantly searching and reviewing companies that offer excellent training.
I only review businesses that I would recommend to a good friend.
Many of them are virtual jobs that you can operate from anywhere you choose.
As long as you have a laptop and access to the internet, you’re in business.
Where would you go if you could work wherever you wanted?
My goal is to provide you with fresh, relevant thoughts and ideas. Your student’s needs, and the expectations constantly being placed on you change quickly.
I do the reading you may not have time for, and provide useful information in a quick, easy to process format.
I’ve chosen to be foot-loose, fancy-free, and gainfully employed through a company called Wealthy Affiliate.
They have an excellent track record of helping people turn their dreams into realities.
It doesn’t work for everyone, but I know it works for teachers, and here’s why:
- Teachers realize get-rich-quick is fiction.
- Teachers know what real work is. You’re doing it every day.
- Teachers know how to:
- Juggle a dozen tasks
- Explain and explain again
- Pour their hearts and souls into projects and see them through to the end
If you just recognized yourself in this description, Wealthy Affiliate can help you live the life you deserve.
