What is a Teacherpreneur?
There is a new brand kind of teacher that is bridging the gap between the traditional classroom teacher, subject matter specialists, and curriculum designers. Here is where the teacherprenuer comes in.
A teacherpreneur is typically a teacher who dreams of and works towards impacting the field of education beyond her own single classroom. In some cases, this might be a teacher who leaves the classroom to teach education classes at the university level.
Teachers interested in pursuing teacherprenuership may branch out and start a new career working as community organizers, tutors, professors, or as curriculum writers. This is where I fit in. I am a teacherpreneur. Some people call us teacher authors. When someone asks me what I job is…I explain that I write curriculum and create lessons and activities for other classroom teachers.
