What is a Teacherpreneur?

A teacherpreneur is an educator that uses their background in education to build a business. The most well-known way to become a teacherpreneur is selling resources, such as worksheets, presentations, lesson plans, or bulletin board designs, on a site like Teacher Pay Teachers. However, there are many ways to go beyond the TPT platform to grow a thriving business, like creating digital courses, memberships, or subscription programs.
