Teachers Can Expand Their Earnings Beyond The Classroom
If you have enough teaching experience under your belt, then you more than likely have accumulated a collection of lesson plans, teaching tools, class handouts, and other resources that aid you during your class lectures. I suggest taking inventory of all of these self created resources, and then ask yourself the following question. Would the resources that you’ve created be just as helpful to other teachers as they are to you? If so, then you may be able to monetize these resources and I’ll tell you how.
There are online marketplaces and communities where teachers can share or even sell their resources to other teachers. If you have some resources that you are willing to share with other teachers, resources that would make their jobs easier, you may be surprised at how many teachers would be willing to pay you for those resources, and there are websites that have been created specifically for this purpose. Let’s look at a few.
