Teacherpreneur: Me?

I love a good challenge.

When I completed my Masters degree and basked in the high praise of the fully vested Ph.D. professors after my final presentation, I was launched into a completely new place regarding my career.

Before that time, though, I had it in my head that I would move on to take more classes and eventually become an LDT-C (a.k.a. Learning Consultant within a school or district).  But after some extensive research and consultations with those same professors over the past few weeks, I’ve decided that track isn’t right for me.  Instead, I want to stay in the classroom – but also begin to lead other teachers, parents, policymakers, and members of the community, too.

I want to be a Teacherpreneur.

What does a Teacherpreneur do?  Well, pretty much anything.

Some Teacherpreneurs have created new positions for themselves within their respective districts, others have been invited to speak as experts at conferences and conventions, while others have been able to implement real, tangible changes within their schools that have truly benefitted the students.

For me, I can see any of the above happening, plus a few other things, like a published book, a teaching position in higher education, or a new schooling concept.  Really, the possibilities are endless – and I like that.  This ultimately allows me to be as creative as possible – and that is exactly what I’ve been searching for.

The world of teaching has finally become my oyster.

So, I’ll be posting my updates, ideas, lessons, and progress from time to time and I hope you’ll join me on this journey!  You can find everything on my Teacherpreneur page.
