Teach Me, Teacher
#133 Teachers Pay Teachers, Friend or Foe? with Kayse Morris (pt.1)
Hello everyone! I just realized that we have had "edgy" topics on the show for two weeks in a row now (here's last week's episode on phones shouldn't be banned from classrooms). Middle school attitudes must be affecting my judgement...
In any case! I'm bringing a topic to the podcast I have wanted to for awhile now, and that is the BIG discussion of Teachers Pay Teachers, it's value to educators, the dangers it raises, and how teachers can potentially use it for good in their personal lives and the lives of others.
To help me with this talk, I brought on the amazing Kayse Morris, one of the thought leaders in "Teachers as CEOs" and a truly magnificent human. Her work with the Go-Getter's Podcast is phenomenal, and a great resource for any teacher wanting to make money and run their own business.
We cover a lot in this episode, but if you're curious about the Teachers Pay Teachers debate, or are wanting to start selling your resources online, this episode is the one for you!

But before you go off and listen, consider supporting the podcast by grabbing a copy of Teach Me, Teacher, Life Lessons that Taught Me How to be a Better Teacher. Written in celebration of teachers and the power of education, Teach Me, Teacher affirms that you have the power to save a life. If you need to remember your why, or gain insight into the mind of a child who endured trauma at home, and how school saved him (me), this is the book for you.
