I am starting a website www.paydaysforsnowdays.com to help teachers monetize their skills. I would love to help you in your journey! You have a tremendous amount of skills that are valuable in the workplace and can transition into a job outside of teaching. You can inbox me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat.
Have a great night,
Steven - Catherine asks some excellent questions. The answers are going to be important. Is returning to work as a research analyst or copywriter your goal? Do you want to start your own business? You can update your copy writing skills a number of ways. If you haven't already, check out Copyblogger for a wealth of info and Udemy for courses on just about anything you can think of. Once you sign up, they'll periodically send you notification of sales/coupons that can save you a significant amount on courses.
As educators, we have many skills that often go unrecognized. Check out this resource to see just how many.
I like this discussion happening. Thanks Steven for starting it. Catherine, I've taken a similar path; though I hadn't retired I was "low man on the totem pole." Now, I am an adult consumer educator, a tutor and a coach. Steven, are you wanting to go back into business, or something else educationally, or combining all of it. I'm having lots of fun as I'm learning to combine my experiences and talents. Lets keep this conversation going. Hope we're all doing well. Leta
Steven - you do not say why you are leaving teaching or what your passions might be. I left teaching (retired) and continue to tutor, teach continuing education and provide workshops.
I am currently a teacher, and I am leaving the education field. I need some ideas of what someone with a teaching background can do for a career going forward. I worked in business as well for 5 years as a Senior Research Analyst and a Copywriter. The problem is that I was told that my past business experience is out of date, so I really need help figuring out what direction to go in now. Thanks!
Hello, I'm new to the group. I currently am teaching part-time Pk-12 vocal music at a public school and 8-9 credit hours at a Community College. Considering getting out of the public education sector, but unsure where I want to go from there. Would love to get on at the Community College full-time, but not an availability as of yet.
Happy New Year Everyone! Can any of us believe that we are now going into the second-half of the year? Just seems like its going so fast. Does anyone in this group know much about Charter schools? Interested in hearing what folks know about charter schools, how to set them up. Just curious. Have a great New Year. What are your goals for 2014......professionally, personally? Lets use this group to support each other at achieving some of our goals.
Hey everyone! Happy Friday! (Even though it's Friday the 13th ...)
I wanted to share this with you in case you're interested ...
I’m very excited to be offering my first product, beginning today. It’s called The Take Note System, and it’s a complete Evernote training system specifically designed for those who lead and create: artists, teachers, speakers, writers, coaches, podcasters, bloggers, and others.
From today until Dec. 20 I’m offering a special VIP Pre-Launch Package on The Take Note System. The training material won’t be available until Jan. 13, but if you purchase within the next few days you get an incredible pre-launch deal that includes the full system, plus a ton of great bonuses. This includes
This is the lowest price it will ever be, so grab it while you can!
Evernote is a great tool to help you get organized, reduce stress, and focus on doing the work that matters. It's a massive help with many aspects of teaching: storing ideas, clipping material from the web, consolidating research, collaborating with others, outlining content and so much more. As a college Professor I use Evernote extensively for class preparation and organizing ideas. I have also used it to share material with students.
I hope you’ll check out The Take Note System. The special VIP Pre-Launch Package is only available from today until Dec. 20. If you have questions, let me know — I’m here to help!
New to the group. I am a licensed special educator in Tennessee. I currently teacher inclusion English and I am a writer (fiction and non-fiction). Glad to be a part of the group. @BlackScholaronl
