Education and entrepreneurship intersect for edupreneurs who sell their teaching materials online, provide professional development services, and create a myriad of side businesses that utilize their teaching skills. Sometimes called teacherpreneurs, these individuals are are tired of having their teaching expertise undervalued while corporations roll in the dough from publishing curriculum resources and consulting with schools. Who knows teaching best practices better than a teacher?
I became an edupreneur in 2003 when I created this website. Over the years, I started making money from ad revenue, Amazon affiliate earnings, freelance writing and editorial work, sales of my first, second, and third books, and webinars. In 2009 when I got married and moved to New York City with my husband, I took the leap from full-time teaching to full-time consulting. I’m now an edupreneur who teaches teachers! I work as an instructional coach, provide staff development, and create books and articles to support educators in their daily practice. I make a living doing the creative things I love, and I want to help other educators do the same.
