Believe me. I know you have a hard job. Teaching special education is something that not everyone can do. It takes love, dedication, and compassion to be a special education teacher. A desire to never give up on any student, no matter what.
But unfortunately, many people don’t understand just how vital your position is. How crucial you are to the inner workings of a school, and likely, you are not compensated as the amazing angel that you are.
you are an angel to your students.
Have you ever thought...
I can’t pay the bills.
I have no money for food.
Why, if my job is so important, am I not paid enough to survive?
You are certainly not alone!
I was in the same position. I have 3 young daughters who wanted to be in EVERY sport and eat steak for dinner every night. I spent my days defending my profession and I spent many nights wondering if I would ever be able to take my children on a vacation like their “rich” friends. Bills were piling up and before I knew it, I was resenting my job and dreading the pitiful paycheck every other week.
There had to be a better way!
I know so many special educators that love their job, but hate the paycheck. It just doesn’t seem fair that you have to struggle when the work you do is so precious.
The better way!
I started a blog a few years ago to help out special educators get the training they needed to be successful in the classroom. And so far, the positive responses have been overwhelming! Things have been wonderful! Because of my blog, I have been lucky enough to supplement my income with selling online professional development courses to special educators.
And so, starting a blog and selling courses online only helps ME. And what I want is to help YOU! I don’t want you to feel resentful of your lackluster paycheck and ultimately, your job. I don’t want to see another teacher get saddened when they see a friend on Facebook on yet another vacation. I want you to have that freedom as well!
And you can!!!

In your case, I want to give you the opportunity to preview my courses, use them in your classroom and then be able to sell them for a commission.

A bit about me:
Hi! i'm Trisha! I have over 15 years working with special education students. I hold a master's degree in education and 3 teaching certifications. I have rolled out school-wide PBIS programs and have been a guest speaker at national conferences around the United States.
But, not too long ago, I was just like you. I was living paycheck to paycheck and trying to make ends meet. I didn’t think it was fair that educators held such an important position, but weren’t paid enough. I started a blog and began selling online courses as a way to supplement my income. And boy, were the responses amazing! I could offer teachers the training that they wanted, and put a few extra bucks in my bank account. It was a win-win!
And now, I want to do that for you!
After starting my blog, I came across thousands of teachers that were working 2,3 and even 4+ jobs just to try and put food on the table. They were tutoring after school, bartending until late at night, or begging their friends and family to host parties at their house for a very small commission.
That is not how I want you to live. I want you to have more time with friends and family. more money in the bank account. and more time for life.
So here’s what I’m offering. I’ll continue to do my thing, but I’m giving you a chance to get in. A chance to make a larger commission on things that you know others need. A chance to live better.
If you are tired of crying every time you look at your bank statement, come join me. You won’t be disappointed. I promise.
Let’s do this, Together
