Selling my teaching resource online had never crossed my mind. I didn't know it, but this was the answer to many prayers!  Thinking about if you should sell your teaching resources online? Are you looking for ways teachers can make extra money or just searching for a teacher side hustle?  Maybe you wish to work from home full time while still making a splash in the world of education?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, this could be a pivotal moment in your life and career in education.  Now, let me tell you how I got started selling my teaching resources online.  

 Selling my Teaching Resources Online 
Teacher Side Hustle

Teacher side hustle that you can work from home while teaching? Is that a real thing? The answer is YES! Hop onto Teachers Pay Teachers and find out more.

In December of 2018, I started considering the possibilities of starting a teacher side hustle. I knew a boost of income would be great for my family and would drastically speed up paying off my student loan debt.  However, my struggle was figuring out how I could make money, work from home, teach full time, and continue to take care of my family. The reality of my situation set in and I began thinking a teacher side hustle wasn’t in the cards for me.  Later in the day, I jumped on Instagram for a few minutes while my children were playing with the toys Santa brought. Selling my teaching resources online? Hmm, that was a thought so I started digging in and doing some research.

Who is Kayse Morris?

Kayse Morris was a lifesaver! She is not only a former teacher but an expert in the online marketing space!

On Instagram, a friend of mine mentioned a lady name Kayse Morris who was very energetically talking about selling teacher resources online. So, after surveying her profile, I noted that this teacher had nearly 40,000 followers, was from Georgia, and was clearly successful. I visited Kayse's teaching style blog and her very successful TpT store and a lightning bolt struck me.  This was my teacher's side hustle...this was it! At that point I was already designing and creating the majority of my classroom teaching resources.  However, I knew I would need to learn how to navigate my way into selling and marketing my teaching resources online. I was ready to learn how to professionally create, protect, market, and organize my teacher resources online.  That’s when I found the course CEO teacher formally known as Transform Your Resources by Kayse Morris.

Hello Extra MONEY!

By Module 2 in Transform Your Resources, it was clear to me that this wasn’t just my teacher side hustle anymore.  This was my pay my student loans off, pay my house off, or buy a beach house business. My new business, Teaching Dunn Simply, was the vehicle for changing my family's financial future and I had the pedal to the metal! So, now my teacher style blog is a part of my teaching story, and I am so proud. Teachers and educators that have purchased my teaching resources online from my Teachers pay Teachers store needed help. Maybe time was of the essence, or they needed an activity to teach a specific standard. Maybe they were preparing for state testing or were struggling with classroom management. I love creating teaching resources, activities, games, graphic organizers, checklists, and test prep materials and teacher blogging to make an impact on teachers from all over.  Best. Feeling. Ever.

Change your family's financial outlook!  This is my dream and I am currently taking action to accomplish this goal thanks to investing in myself and my business.  My current action is to join the CEO Teacher Academy by Kayse Morris.
