Questions people asked before saying YES to Teacher Career Coach Course.
The teachers who get the MOST out of The Teacher Career Coach are usually the ones who ask the most questions.
Personally, I love it.
I use these questions to shape my course, to continue to add new materials, to ensure that the course helps a variety of teachers in different circumstances looking to make a career change.
And at the end of the day, I only want you to join Teacher Career Coach when you know you are ready for something new in your life.
If you’re still on the fence about joining the Teacher Career Coach program, chances are at least a few of these have been on your mind recently.
Q1. I’ve spent so much time establishing myself as a teacher. Will I have to start all over again?
Good news! The fact that you have any degree is a positive when applying for positions. Most HR professionals are looking more for experience and less for specific degrees, so you don’t usually need to worry about your degree not being in a specific industry (unless you are trying to go into the health field).
It’s more important that you’re able to showcase how the skills you’ve acquired translate into the skills that make you the most qualified candidate for the position.
That’s where Module 4 of The Teacher Career Coach Course comes in – I’ve built From Classroom To Corporate resume writing translations to help you quickly identify what experience you have in training, content creation, data analysis, marketing, budgeting, project management, managerial, and more…all using your teaching experience!
Q2: Am I really qualified for anything besides teaching?
This is one of the most common questions I get asked, and so I’ve established a framework to help walk teachers through determining what jobs are the best fit for them. If you’re a teacher with less than five years’ experience you’ll be qualified for different positions than a teacher with 15 years’ experience.
Everyone has different qualifications they’ve established even within their job duties as a teacher but you have to also account for experience from other positions or volunteer work that you’ve established in your professional life.
That’s why in Module 2 I walk the Teacher Career Coach members through steps to reading job listings and helping them determine which positions would be the best fit with their qualifications.
Some graduated Teacher Career Coach members have transitioned into Curriculum Writers, Instructional Designers, and Office Manager positions (just to name a few!)
Q3: No one values teachers outside of the classroom.
That’s absolutely NOT true. There’s a crazy myth floating out there that other industries won’t take you seriously.
In Module 4 of The Teacher Career Coach Course, I help teachers gain their confidence back in describing themselves as a professional.
Before you start to sell yourself on a resume or in an interview, you’ll start working on mindset shifts to realizing how much VALUE you bring to the table.
Q4: What makes The Teacher Career Coach different than other programs?
The Teacher Career Coach Course was built by a former teacher who left the classroom for positions in educational technology.
While other courses may help you create your resume or learn to network, this one is made specifically for you – a teacher. The resources are built specifically with you in mind – saving you time when it comes to your next steps.
I consulted with a certified career coach with 10+ years in HR and resume writing experience to develop many of the resources in the course. I paid the high one-on-one fees and put all of the answers in one digital library so that you don’t have to.
Q5: Will I really have time to juggle this course while I’m full time in the classroom?
What you need to ask yourself is this…
Do you have time to find all of the answers on your own?
You’re a super busy teacher with a million things on your to-do list. I built my resources with you in mind – so that you DON’T have to scramble to learn it all on your own and guess if you’re doing it right. That makes the Teacher Career Course completely doable.
Q6: What is actually included in my Teacher Career Coach membership?
When I left teaching there were little to no resources out there for me, so I wanted to change that for the next generation of teachers leaving the classroom.
You’ll have access to my video modules where I walk you through identifying your new career path, describing yourself as a professional and mindset shifts, networking, resume writing, salary negotiation, interviews, and more.
The course currently includes over 100 pages of printable templates, like a list of translated vocabulary from classroom to corporate to make your resume writing process easier.
The resume writer I work with has created sample transition resumes for new teachers and experienced teachers looking to transition. I even answer some of the tricky questions like how to talk in interviews about your decision to leave the classroom, a toxic administration, or shifts in politics.
We also have a private community built only for our course members – so you can chat with one another for encouragement and support. All of this is included in the Teacher Career Coach Course.
Q7: Do you have a return policy?
I would hate for you to continue to put this decision off. The more that time goes on, life gets in the way, you get distracted and forget about these resources. If you are truly unhappy, this is your first step to creating a new life for yourself. I know how stressful this decision is, so I want to make this decision as easy as possible for you.
