A Note from Lisa...

With over 14 years of experience in EdTech executive roles, I've mentored numerous transitioning teachers. After my own career transition, I recognized the need for reliable support in helping teachers transition careers. That’s why I founded the Teacher Career Transition Academy, a collaborative effort involving certified career coaches, resume professionals, industry leading executives, and life coaches.   This Alternative Career Directory was curated to help you explore and narrow down potential careers.
