I left the classroom in September 2020. It seems like a lifetime ago. In two years, so much has changed in education, but when I left, there wasn’t much support for teachers like myself, looking to go freelance. I had no business experience...whatsoever. I didn’t like promoting myself, because I feared putting myself “out there.” I knew teaching was my passion, and I didn't want to stop teaching altogether. I was born to teach. But, at the same time, I didn’t want to be just a tutor, helping kids with their homework and following someone else’s lesson plans. But there was no clear lane for someone like me.
I help educators who know they must transition out of the classroom, even if they can’t yet see what’s next to come. My goal is to help them continue doing what they love without all the stress they’ve become used to. And without many of the strings attached.Because I know, at their core, teachers love teaching...but as dedicated as they are to their profession, teachers are human too. And we deserve
Leaving takes the support of a village.
