If you have ever known a teacher that has gone over and beyond their call of duty as an educator; who not only leads the classroom, but leads the school in making important changes to better the classroom environment; you have met a teacherpreneur.
Since today is Teacher Appreciation Day, we wanted to introduce you to who these teacherpreneurs really are and how they can (and do) make a positive impact on your schools. Let’s dive in!
A person who is a teacher and an entrepreneur in education. Someone who is a classroom expert devoting time to both teaching students and leading innovations in practice or policy which benefits students throughout their schools, districts, and beyond.
It is a common misconception that a teacherpreneur must leave their students in order to work with policymakers to make the changes needed for their schools and districts. In truth, there are many benefits to having a teacherpreneur at your school…
Keeping an entrepreneurial spirit in our schools is important for morale, community, and progress. It will keep teachers immersed in the educational environment, keep them empowered, and essentially help integrate any and all school initiatives.

If you want teacherpreneurs in your school, try to set goals and make promises to encourage entrepreneurship in education. Give your teachers the resources to learn, adapt, and influence the policies in your schools and districts. While principals and district leaders will have the final word, allowing teachers to participate will help schools and districts quickly reach goals, and inevitably benefit all students involved.
Need somewhere to start? Thank your teachers for all of the hard work they have put in this year! It is Teacher Appreciation Week, so there is no time like the present to celebrate them with posters, stickers, and more.
