For AmeriCorps Week: Non-Traditional Careers in Education

Made In AmeriCorpsHappy AmeriCorps Week 2013! I was Made in AmeriCorps and I wanted to explain how it got me to where I am today.

Not only do I work in the field of non-traditional education…I have a non-traditional job. But when I say I am an “educational consultant,” most people don’t really know what that means.

Like any small business owner, being a “consultant” is not as glamorous as it seems. But when things get tough & the traditional workforce isn’t working for people, they sometimes ask me if consulting might work for them, too. This presentation is for all those people who are curious about what exactly I do, how I got here, what the world of education might hold for them in addition to classroom teaching, and whether they might be a better fit for the “flexible workforce.”
