If you have been a teacher for any time at all, you probably know that, historically, educators are some of the most underpaid professionals. Since the 1970s, teachers across the country have consistently earned less than other college graduates in the workforce.
Of course, those genuinely passionate about their students do not let that stop them. When you love what you do, the associated sense of fulfillment is enough to make up for a lower salary. However, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for less if you want to continue working in the academic field.
There are several ways to pursue teacher salary advancement, and enrolling in professional development classes is one of the best. If you’re not sure how to get started, Happy Teacher can help. Read on to learn who we are, what we do, and how we can support your most ambitious career goals.
At Happy Teacher, our name says it all. We strive to help make teachers happy because they will foster happy students, and as we all know, happy students can go on to do anything.
Our passionate team believes the best way to support educators is through professional development classes. We currently have more than 30 project-based courses that can enhance your career.
Since our students are often overwhelmed with teaching and academic demands, we wanted to ensure our teacher classes are practical and easily accessible. The design of our Happy Teacher classes is perfect for teachers. Each class is only one month long, and they’re entirely remote. What’s more, you can complete them at your own pace and choose your own deadlines on our self-guided platform. You can even transfer your enrollment to another month if life gets in the way of completing the coursework.
Happiness starts with our own well-being, so we knew we had to offer several classes focusing on your physical, emotional, and financial health. From cooking balanced meals to cultivating kindness or managing money to managing stress, our wellness courses address a host of subjects designed to enrich your life.
Once you are in a position to pursue teacher salary advancement, we encourage you to enroll in a class targeted toward maximizing earning potential. You could master a new learning management system, study sports nutrition, or explore the five components of reading proficiency. Regardless of the specific subject, taking teacher classes will allow you to grow as a professional.
Our courses have optional credit from Adams State University.
