You went into teaching because you love kids and felt called to the profession. For you, teaching isn’t just a job. It’s part of who you are.
Even if you’ve thought of leaving the classroom… what else could you do?
Education has changed since you first walked into a classroom. Sure, the kids are great. But the bureaucracy. The lack of autonomy. And the number of parents who turn out to be Karens. Ugh.
Then there’s the money. Of course, no one goes into teaching to become rich, but it shouldn’t mean you’re sentenced to poverty either. Seriously. There’s a member of our community that wants to make some extra money so she can turn her heat up in the winter.
And at the end of the day, when you’re sweaty and tired, covered in paint or paper cuts… or snot, you wonder if you can really do this for another 10, 20, or 30 years.
We know that you are capable of great things.
Don’t let that little voice inside your head convince you that you’re “just a teacher.”
You are a teacher, and you can do anything!
Edupreneur Academy is a membership program for teachers like you who dream of starting and growing a business while you teach.
It’s designed for teachers!
And it’s packed with in-depth, practical training and resources on all aspects of planning, building, running and growing a business as a teacher.

Edupreneur Academy will help you to...
There are plenty of other programs, courses, or memberships that can show you how to start and grow a business.
Edupreneur Academy is the only one made just for teachers who are still actively teaching… and run by a current teacher who understands what being a teacher in 2020 looks like.
Being in programs with people who have 40+ hours a week to devote to their side hustle can be discouraging, and even make you feel like you’re not cut out for this.
But at Edupreneur Academy you’ll be surrounded by other teachers, like you, who are building their businesses one baby step at a time.
Hi, I’m Stacey Ogden, founder of Side Hustle Teachers and the Edupreneur Academy. I’ve been a teacher for 19 years and side hustlin’ for the last 7.
Yep, I’m walkin’ the walk.
After years of building my own businesses and answering questions about how I did it from colleagues, I opened Side Hustle Teachers as a way to share what I’d learned along the way.
"Side Hustle Teachers [Edupreneur Academy] has allowed me to take my business to the next level. Stacey provides so much information from how to pick your perfect side hustle ,to the best platforms to use to promote, and how to keep track of all your business expenses and profits. The courses are short but packed with information which allowed me learn in bite sized pieces. The face to face time and being able to ask Stacey questions in real time has been invaluable to me. I highly recommend enrolling in the [Edupreneur Academy] if you are looking to develop and grow your own side hustle."
