    Episode 69: From Posts to Products: A Guilt Free Guide to Leveraging School to Fuel Your Side Hustle

    If you are living the teacherpreneur lifestyle, you are potentially facing burnout on two fronts. Both teaching and entrepreneurship are time-consuming and energy-intensive efforts, evident in the high attrition rates in the field of education as well as the dismal percentage of small businesses that ever reach success. With so much to do and so much stacked against us, why are so many of making our lives that much more difficult by seeing teaching and our side hustle as separate rather than linked activities? With this simple mindset shift, we can save time and energy without making any sacrifices in terms of either career or ethics.

    Episode 68: Looking Legit: DIY Brand Photoshoot for Teacherpreneurs

    Episode 68: Looking Legit: DIY Brand Photoshoot for Teacherpreneurs

    We teach our students not to judge a book by its cover, but if we are being completely honest, we probably aren’t living what we preach when it comes to how we act online. Even though intellectually we realize that we may be missing out on great teaching insight in a long-form IG caption, a blog post linked to from Pinterest, or a TpT product, without an appealing visual to accompany it, it will almost certainly be overlooked.

    It’s time other teachers stop missing out on all you have to offer online. It’s time to get seen and heard, and it all starts with the visual message you are sending.

    While we certainly hope you use a service like EDverything Social to help you fill your IG feed with quality images when you need stock photos, for the rest of your posts, make it personal. After all, your followers want to see you. It’s time to get out of our comfort zones and get in front of the camera. Having two of our own brand photoshoots under our belts, we are sharing all the lessons we learned first hand so you don’t make the same mistakes on your first go-round.

    In this episode, you’ll hear:

    -What exactly to set goals around to get the most out of your photoshoot

    -Why a secret Pinterest board can help make your day far more successful

    -What to keep in mind when selecting your photoshoot site (and why scouting the location and the time of day/year need to be factored in)

    -The mindset shift you may need to hear so you don’t feel out of place as a model

    Episode 67: Personally Speaking: Showcasing Your Personality In and Out of the Classroom

    Episode 67: Personally Speaking: Showcasing Your Personality In and Out of the Classroom

    Whether you are looking to make an impact in the classroom or on social media, being a teacher is all about making connections.  But in order to do that, you need to put yourself out there, and though that may sound simple, for many of us, that act is no easy feat.  In a helping-oriented industry, it can seem like talking about yourself is a way of putting yourself first, but that isn’t accurate. Those who already want to learn from you will only like and trust you more when you let them know who you are on a deeper level while those who may have initially been less intrinsically motivated might have interest in the subject matter you teach sparked by discovering you share similar tastes in something else.

    Often we only think about getting to know our students and having them get to know us in return as something to dedicate time to at the beginning of the school year. But even months in, it isn’t too late; in fact, it may even be the ideal time now that students are no longer overwhelmed with the multitude of new faces to learn. Long after Meet The Teacher packets have been lost and Back to School Night seems like a distant memory, there are plenty of strategies and opportunities for us to infuse more of our personality into each lesson, getting students more invested in our class and more connected on a personal level.  From working small jokes or references into your regularly scheduled lessons to being conscientious of how you present yourself during spirit days, we want you to incorporate aspects of what matters to you without making the class, day, or lessons about you.

    While you may be making the effort IRL, are you doing the same on IG?  So often we assume that because we want to add value that everything we post needs to be academic or classroom-centered but that would ignore the critical human element that you know is necessary to make true learning work.

    It’s time to let the perspective and personality behind each lesson shine, in the classroom and online.

    In this episode, you’ll hear:

    -How bell ringers present an easy opportunity to put a little bit of you (as in your bitmoji) into your regular warm-up activity

    -Why you need to get involved in school activities like spirit days as an easy win and ice breaker

    -About a simple test to put your IG feed through to see if you are showing up recognizably as “you”

    -About the free guide that we made to help you come up with and remember the personal stories to share on Instagram (and how to get your hands on it)

    Episode 66: Classrooms That Work: Beyond Class Jobs with Thom Gibson

    Episode 66: Classrooms That Work: Beyond Class Jobs with Thom Gibson

    Even with an increase in emphasis on career and college readiness, when will we ever use this is one of those perpetual complaints we hear from students.  It can be difficult to find time to meet all the standards while preparing students for standardized tests, leaving little room for covering some of the real-world skills that we know students need-- but don’t know where along the way they will learn them.  But Thom Gibson proves that we can cover some real-life financial literacy no matter what age group or subject you teach, all the while improving classroom management, students’ responsibility, and even saving you, the teacher, valuable time.

    Thom is an award-winning middle school math teacher who realized the potential of creating a classroom economy that goes far beyond having rotating students fulfill a generic role each week.  Thom has customized the jobs-- and salaries-- that can be earned for each position, ensuring that he has incentivized students and covered tasks that help his classroom run more smoothly (never connect your own device to the projector again! 🙌).  Monthly student-run auctions keep students interested, allowing Thom to manage student behavior by making students pay “fines” (tracked by, you guessed it, a fellow student) and instilling in students the values of budgeting and investing, all in the background of his regularly scheduled lessons.

    In this episode, you’ll hear:

    -How Thom’s background as an audio engineering major informed his YouTube channel growth

    -Why classroom jobs aren’t just for the elementary school setting

    -How to determine your classroom jobs--and have students apply for them

    -How the one-time prep work of setting up the classroom economy can save you time in the classroom each day

    -How to “pay” students, why make students pay “rent” on their desks, what students can bid on at auctions, and how to put all the pieces together to use it as an incredibly powerful classroom management tool

    Episode 65: Time Saving Tech, Techniques, and Templates

    Episode 65: Time Saving Tech, Techniques, and Templates

    When a lesson is going really well, it seems like time absolutely flies by. But how often have we had that same sensation, not knowing where the time went, when our daily prep period comes to an end--yet you have nothing to show for it?

    We want to instill time management skills in our students, but if we are being truly honest with ourselves, we don’t always use our own as strategically as possible.  When unexpected parent emails, makeup exams, and copying machine jams come up, we too often resort to dealing with what is urgent and not what should be a priority.  We’ve heard all the suggestions about setting boundaries and we want to bring home less school work, but how we can do that effectively when required meetings after school or providing extra help claims that chunk of time as well?  Add in the desire to grow your teacher side hustle account after the bell rings, and it can seem like there is no time at all left.

    While actually getting more time is impossible, a handful of mindset shifts, online tools, and smart techniques can help you make the most of the time you do have, making those 2020 goals within reach.

    In this episode, you’ll hear:


    Why letting go of perfectionism is a vital first step for implementing almost any time-saving strategy

    How templates can be the time-saver you need for regular interactions at home-- and how to keep those organized

    The free website for lesson planning that helps you stay standards focused while saving time

    What a social media scheduler is-- and how to pick one without getting overwhelmed

    The monthly social media template pack, by teachers, for teachers, so you never post on Instagram without a plan again

    Episode 64: Best In Class: Leveraging Successful Side Hustles to Sustain Strong Classrooms with Mandy Rice

    Episode 64: Best In Class: Leveraging Successful Side Hustles to Sustain Strong Classrooms with Mandy Rice

    Those in education know that teacher attrition rates are alarmingly high. Inadequate preparation, unrealistic expectations, and little support early on are only a fraction of why people flee from the field. With meager salaries, long hours of lesson planning and grading, and the ever-changing standards and requirements on one hand and the seemingly endless opportunities presented by the internet on the other, the lure of leaving the classroom behind seems a pull too strong to resist, removing some of the best from this career path.

    Mandy is on a mission to help great teachers right where they belong—in the classroom—while still achieving financial success and the larger impact they crave.

    Mandy got her start in the online space on YouTube, teaching other educators how to implement a flipped classroom experience. She took what she had learned teaching high schoolers AP Psych using a flipped-classroom approach and turned these insights into actionable steps. From there, Mandy wanted to help her fellow AP instructors, giving them their own time back while still helping students achieve those coveted high test scores. Mandy began a membership website and explains how others can take their content area expertise and do the same.

    In this episode, you’ll hear:

    -Why the flipped classroom approach is student-centered and student serving

    -How to flip your classroom—without getting overwhelmed

    -Why opt for a membership site instead of simply posting one-off resources for TpT
