THERE’S A TEACHER EMERGENCY ON THE HORIZON…
Teachers are leaving the profession, and new teachers aren’t coming in.
30% fewer college students are becoming teachers.
Money. Student loans are higher than ever before, and starting teacher pay is 20% lower than for other college-graduates. Many great future teachers–are becoming anything else.
"I'll never pay off my student loan debt...and I want to eat!"
Some shocking statistics…
- Teachers who leave the profession after 5 years 40% 40%
- Average teacher starting salary compared to other college-educated professions 76% 76%
- Americans who have at least a $400 emergency fund 40% 40%
- Decrease in applications to teacher prep programs nationwide 30% 30%
What if… you could get a 10% raise without even going to your boss?
YOU CAN!! Ask yourself….
Do I spend my paycheck money on my classroom instead of my debt or needs?
Do I say, “I’ll pay it later,” to my own finances while buying a million things for my students?
I did these things. And one day, I made a choice.
I CHOSE TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF THE SAME WAY I CARED FOR STUDENTS.
I promised myself I would not be a broke teacher anymore.
