Founder’s Note: This is a guest post from Stephen Gonzalvo, founder of an upcoming marketplace (TEACHERS EARNING ONLINE) for teacher lesson plans and materials. It’s an exciting and promising venture.
Opportunity for Teachers to Earn while Sharing Knowledge
As a teacher, there are a couple of things that you need to deal with. Among these are managing the students in class, presenting your instructional materials in a way that is understandable to students, and evaluating your students’ performance.
One of the most difficult tasks, however, is preparing lesson plans for class. Preparing lesson plans is a daily activity which can take so much time. On average, a teacher needs at least a couple of hours to prepare a lesson plan for one class. Some teachers say that they need a couple of days to finish a perfectly good lesson plan. The task gets more complicated if you are teaching two or three different subjects in different grade levels.
Back then, a teacher needs to be innovative and use the small amount of time he has to come up with good and meaningful lesson plans for his students every day. In many cases, teachers have to sacrifice so much just to prepare for their class the following day.
Buying Lesson Plans Online
What if there is a website that can help you get that lesson plan for your class the next day in just minutes? In this website, you can choose lesson plans and other instructional materials which you need for all your class.
This way, you will save a lot of time and avoid all that stress by buying it from a colleague who has been teaching that subject for years. You can also get new ideas from your colleagues that can help you revise and improve your own lesson plan.
Selling your Lesson Plans Online
Let us go a bit further. What if you have existing lesson plans which you update every year? Let us say, you keep these lesson plans and instructional materials which are products of your hard work and dedication to your profession.
You have been sharing these lesson plans to your colleagues for quite some time and they have recognized you for it.
What if you there is a website that will allow you to sell those lesson plans. Would it not be great if you will earn extra cash from the fruits of your labor?
