I’m the founder of Deep Pocket Teachers and I want to help you find financial success outside of your teaching profession.
Are you currently feeling lost in your teaching career?
Do you feel underpaid or undervalued?
Do you love what you're doing but struggle to pay your bills?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, I have been in your shoes.
For twelve years, I was an elementary school teacher and I absolutely loved it. I worked at an incredible school. I felt supported by my colleagues. Most of all, I loved the act of teaching children.
The trouble was, that for twelve years I was also a freelance writer, tutor, camp counselor, babysitter and food blogger. There was never a moment when I could support myself on just my teacher salary alone. And it was not for lack of hard work. I typically left school at 4:00, worked a second job until 6:00 and then worked on lesson planning and parent emails until 10:00. It became incredibly frustrating.
By the time I was 37, I had a mountain of credit card debt, student loans with growing interest and an average of $300 in my checking account. Most of my friends had six figure incomes, houses and cars. I couldn’t even buy a new couch! (which I desperately needed by the way). Where had I gone wrong?
When COVID-19 hit in 2020, I knew that I needed to make a change in my life. It was time to stop talking and start doing. As much as I loved my students, my dedication to my job was not what it used to be. I knew that the financial success I wanted in my life was not going to come if I stayed in the classroom. I did the math and learned that if I could accrue just 12 hours of tutoring jobs per week, I would be able to surpass my teaching income. 12 HOURS! I withdrew my teaching contract in July of 2020 and the rest is history.
