About Broke Teacher…
This started as a joke.
A teacher I know moved to take a job in one of the lowest-paying states.
She came back broke.
“This makes me mad,” I said. I started posting “broke teacher” recipes, articles, and tips on Facebook–things like “Best places to steal pens for your classroom.” Then I put them here.
One day, I looked at my own bank account and realized it wasn’t too happy with me, either. The reason was this: I was spending my paycheck on my job.
So I stopped. It was hard–there are a thousand school things to buy if you’re a teacher.
WHAT I WANT FOR TEACHERS EVERYWHERE…
I want you to take care of yourself first. Plan–and achieve your dreams.
You can’t do that while you’re going broke funding your job.
Know this: You don’t have to be broke to be a teacher. In fact, you shouldn’t be.
Let’s throw away “broke teacher” together.
