Student Teacher - Don't Fall in to This Trap

So you are a student teacher in teacher's college. There are so many new ideas presented to you with how to create effective lesson plans, classroom management, and portfolio making. All of this is to prepare you for the big interviews, and ultimately for your job. The problem is that at this time, many student teachers are not getting jobs as easily as they once were, and some are not getting jobs at all.


Currently the job market is saturated with teachers, especially if you are an elementary teacher. Most teachers are stuck taking temporary positions or supply teaching for months or several years until they finally get a full time position. As a student teacher, you might be lucky enough to do some supply teaching and get paid as an 'unqualified teacher' for a while until your papers come in that say you are qualified.

As a student teacher you really need to make sure you have a plan to make money if you do not land that full time teaching job right away, or if you are only a temporary teacher, or if you are doing occasional supply work. If you are not full time, you will not be paid over any vacation periods, and if you supply teach you need to make calculate roughly how much you will make a month, so you know how much to supplement this income.

Sure you could go out and get another job, but with occasional teaching it is sometimes hard to fit a new job (with it's set hours) in to your teaching schedule. This is why it is so important to have a plan, where you can make money either while you are teaching in the classroom, or while you are at home.

The Internet has made it extremely profitable for us as teachers to make money Online. As a student teacher, you need to briefly take your mind away from curriculum documents and do some research into concepts like leverage and residual income. For these two concepts are really going to change the way you think about making money. And, once you finally do land a teaching job, these concepts are also going to separate you from the rest of your colleagues who are chained to their budgets.

Some reading that I would suggest before taking the skills you learned as a student teacher into the workplace are : Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki and The 4 Hour Workweek - Tim Ferriss. You can get the gist of their ideas on YouTube videos if you do not have time for additional reading. These authors completely changed the way I look at the teaching profession, and making money as a whole.

Start to open your mind to the concepts taught in these books, and learn as much as you can about making money online, aside from teaching so that you can make money while you're not working, and so you can teach if you love it and not because you have to. Do not forget to check out the link in the resource box below. I've got a great free report that details my experiences so you can learn from them.
