I quit teaching in 2018.
In the years leading up to this, I felt so frustrated that I couldn’t find any advice that supported this decision. I found it so hard to find advice about how my decade as a teacher translated into other careers. I didn’t know who I should talk to, or even if the reality of changing career was possible. I had reached the point where I was at Leadership salary and the thought of moving to a brand new industry made my bank balance shudder. I was desperately looking at entry-level jobs, and just wanted out. I felt trapped by teacher resignation dates. I needed support in leaving teaching and couldn’t find it anywhere.
I have quit teaching now, I made it out. It wasn’t easy and isn’t without it’s stresses but it was the best decision I have made for my wellbeing and my family. My finances haven’t suffered because I stopped being desperate and started being strategic. I am going to help you do the same.
