Using Your Teacher Expertise to Be An Educational Consultant
A 4-week guide to using your expertise as a classroom teacher to break into the world of educational consulting.
There's an all-time high of teachers not liking their jobs. They're tired of the changing policies, lack of respect, and the constant "ebb and flow" of consultants coming in and out of their building. But what would happen if educational consultants were actual teachers? What would happen if YOU used your expertise to really go into schools and HELP teachers around issues in their school?
This 4-week course, "Using Your Teacher Expertise as an Educational Consultant", focuses on how teachers can take what they do everyday in the classroom and break into the field of being a consultant. Packed full of useful information, this course is guaranteed to get teachers in the motion of taking control of their professional careers.
During this course, participants will have access to:
- Over 18 activities to help teachers practice the skills (securing conference speaking, finding consulting jobs, branding, etc.) they will need to be an educational consultant.
- 5 Private Podcasts that go into detail the weekly theme of the course.
- Free eBook that gives detailed support on what teachers can do TODAY to get started in the educational consultant realm.
- Private Facebook group where potential job opportunities will be featured and support from other teachers who want to be consultants.
- A lifetime access to the course along with networking opportunities you won't find anywhere else.
This self-paced course is meant to be a starting block to allowing teachers to grow in their own professional development. While the course is totally self-paced, it typically will take teachers four weeks to grow through all of the materials.

Jessica B., Tales of A Countryside Teacher
For fifteen years, I taught high school English/Language Arts in inner city children in both Memphis and Atlanta. During my time in the classroom, I managed to accumulate numerous teaching awards and always felt like my purpose in life was to work with the kids that many people forget-inner city children. In 2012 right after being voted Teacher of the Year, I was told that my district was going through a reduction in force and that I would have to reapply for my job. The day after I interviewed for my position, I started The Educator's Room to release some of the anger I felt around the profession. This blog has breathed new life into my professional life and has allowed me to pursue some opportunities outside of the classroom. Right now I work as a Literacy Coach in the metro Atlanta area and I love my job.
I can remember being in the classroom constantly thinking that we (teachers) are the real experts in education. I worked with so many people who possessed so much knowledge of their craft that I was amazed that they struggled for respect-whether it was in the form of their compensation or just their opinion on issues in education. When I started this blog, I told everyone about my idea, but many people didn’t believe that anyone would ever listen to just some “teachers”. Armed with my beliefs, I was able to recruit some fellow educators from across the country to write about all topics in education. Four years later, we have over 30 teachers on staff writing about their expertise in the classroom.
