HI All!

Thought I would introduce myself. I was a preschool teacher but had to leave because I couldn't make ends meet. However, I'm still wildly passionate about Early Childhood Education and Development. I'm trying to create a side business now that taps into that passion as well as working full-time in another industry. I look forward to diving into this group! So excited to find fellows who are like minded. :D

So glad to find a group of fellow teachers who are looking beyond the classroom for entrepreneurial opportunities. I am a college math instructor and former high school teacher who is looking to expand into public speaking as a possible career change. I'll enjoy connecting with other teachers in this group!

Hello teachers.  Need some encouragement?  Need some hope?  Need some ideas?  Need to vent?  Check out my podcast at Two Teachers in Texas.  Let's work together to make a better school and a better life for we teachers.

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 paydaysforsnowdays@gmail.com 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.
