About Me: The Teacher Career Coach

Hey there, I'm Daphne! If you're here looking for information about making a transition out of your teaching career, we probably have a lot in common.

After years of teaching, I found myself completely miserable. I loved education, but I realized that teaching was not a good fit for me.

The problem?

I had no idea what I wanted to do instead. For a while, I didn't really do anything! I dreaded going to school everyday until I knew I had to make a significant change in my life. Teaching was supposed to be my "forever career," so I never made a Plan B. I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin.

After a lot of late-night browsing for resources and some serious soul searching, I landed a job outside of the classroom as an educational consultant. I was working for large companies who were involved in education. I spoke to teachers at large educational conferences. For the first time, I felt truly happy with my career and knew I was finally on the right path.

I created the Teacher Career Coach resources because I want to help you find your path. The truth? Transitioning from teaching is totally overwhelming. I get it, I was there too. That's why I created this comprehensive strategy course for you. At your own pace, you'll find an abundance of resources and the supportive community you need to start your next chapter with confidence. I built this course with the guidance of a career counseling expert with over 10 years in HR and professional resume writing experience to ensure this course offers amazing support.

After completing this course you'll find yourself more prepared and confident to step out of the classroom and into your new life. 

And you'll probably make a few friends along the way. 

How do I know this course is for me?

This course is made for educators who are looking to level up their career and transition out of the classroom. This course will work best if any of these scenarios sound like you:

  • You find yourself exhausted at the end of teaching every day.

  • Teaching isn't what you expected it to be.

  • You are tired of having no work life balance.

  • You've decided that teaching isn't for you, but what's next?

  • You are determined and will put in the time and effort this will take.

If the above sound familiar, it's time to make a change.

I created this course to walk you through the steps you'll need to take for a career transition from teaching..

With this course, you'll receive:

  • A Clear Path To Get You Started

    A 32 video course that walks you through identifying the careers you're most qualified for, building your confidence as a career professional, networking, rewriting your transition resume to translate into new positions, negotiating your salary, and more.

  • This is just what I needed after recently being frustrated out of teaching. This has been great while I figure out my next steps.

    Course Feedback

    • Please leave this course a review!

What obstacles are keeping you from pursuing a more fulfilling career? Have you...

  • Wondered where even to start?

  • Felt too busy to find the extra motivation?

  • Questioned your qualifications or experience?

  • Applied for jobs without much luck?

  • Felt overcome with chaos and out of control?

  • Felt unsure of how to market yourself to employers?

If you found yourself answering "yes" to any of the above questions then THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU!

When I was looking for a new career after teaching, I felt all of those things also. What kept me motivated was knowing the positive impact a new career would have on my life. I needed to feel happy, healthy, and sane again after being completely burnt out and miserable in the classroom. To be honest, I couldn't imagine staying one more year (or five more years or twenty) in a career where I was completely miserable. Don't take it from me, check out my Instagram @teachercareercoach to see other the life-changing results leaving teaching has had on other teachers as well.

Imagine if you found a career that:

  • Motivated and energized you

  • Challenged you in productive, engaging ways

  • Left you feeling fulfilled and confident

  • Reinstated a sense of work-life balance

  • Gave you a sense of purpose

Questions people asked before saying YES to Teacher Career Coach Course.

  • 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!

  • 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!)

  • 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.

  • What makes 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
