Ways for Teachers to Supplement Their Income

“The best thing a human being can do is to help another human being know more.” – Charlie Munger

I’ve been very blessed to be able to train teachers and teach students in over 20 countries. In 2009, I began my journey as a connected educator and learned how to use social media and web tools to share my knowledge and materials. In the process, I also discovered how to supplement my income. The clickable Thinglink image below provides resources and tips. I recently presented a webinar about this topic, which you can find on Simple K12. Teachers are rarely paid enough. I hope these ideas will help you find the funds to support your family, attend conferences free, get freebies for your class, or help you spread your ideas and passion! This is my gift to you for teacher appreciation week.

Challenge:

Try one of these ideas and share your resource with me so I can help you get the word out on my social networks.

If you enjoyed these ideas, you may want to get your copy of The 30 Goals for Teachers or my $5.99 ebook, Learning to Go, which has digital/mobile activities for any device and editable/printable handouts and rubrics.

  1. I had trouble finding resources on how to add ads to your blog, could you provide a direct link? Also, I tried to share my hobby of carving as a way to supplement funds through SkillShare but had very little luck in that avenue.
