Having a business doesn't have to be a distraction from your teaching career. There are side hustle options that allow you to work with your school, or other teachers, so you can grow as a teacher and a business person at the same time.

Today’s Guest: Kasey Bell, Owner, Shake Up Learning

Kasey Bell is a former middle school teacher turned award-winning digital learning coach at Shake Up Learning. She is also an international speaker, author of Shake Up Learning: Practical Ideas to Move Learning From Static to Dynamic, blogger at and co-host of The Google Teacher Tribe Podcast.


Kasey started her first blog in 2014, expecting it to be an instant success.  She soon learned that it didn’t work that way, but fortunately it helped her find her true audience and purpose.

When Kasey discovered that there was a real need for her services she tried to quit her job, but her bosses saw the value of what she was doing.  Instead of accepting her resignation, they offered her a unique position within the district in which she could use her skills and grow her business at the same time.
