Jared: one word that we came up with recently is “teacherpreneurs.” Competitors take 40–50% of what the teacher charges. EduFire takes 15%

What the Heck is a ‘Teacherpreneur’?
By Tina Barseghian
APRIL 11, 2011
(...)
Based on the work of the Center for Teaching Quality and Barnett Berry‘s new book “Teaching 2030,” the concept of “teacherpreneur” involves giving classroom teachers more of a voice in educational leadership, while allowing current educational leaders and policymakers opportunities to spend a part of each year working in a classroom with students.

In this ideal world, teachers spend part of their time in the class as co-teachers, part of their time researching and writing curriculum and assessments for schools, part of the time mentoring new teachers (who have a reduced work load while they’re being trained), part of their time innovating ideas for teacher development, and part of their time drafting educational policy.

Teacherpreneurs : innovative teachers who lead but don’t leave
Author: Barnett Berry; Ann Byrd; Alan Wieder
Publisher: San Francisco, California : Jossey-Bass, 2013.
Edition/Format: eBook : Document : English
Database: WorldCat
Summary:
“We need a bold new brand of teacher leadership that will create opportunities for teachers to practice, share, and grow their knowledge and expertise. This book is about “teacherpreneurs"--highly accomplished classroom teachers who blur the lines of distinction between those who teach in schools and those who lead them. These teacherpreneurs embody the concept that teachers can teach as well as lead the transformation of teaching and learning. It’s about empowering expert teachers who can buoy the image of teaching and enforce standards among their ranks while all along making sure that their colleagues as well as education policymakers and the public know what works best for students.The book follows a small group of teacherpreneurs in their first year. We join their journey toward becoming teacher leaders whose work is not defined by administrative fiat, but by their knowledge of students and drive to influence policies that allow them and their colleagues to teach more effectively. The authors trace the teacherpreneurs’ steps--and their own--in the effort to determine what it means to define and execute the concept of “teacherpreneurism” in the face of tough demands and resistant organizational structures”

The Era of the Teacherpreneur

Enter the Teacherpreneur
The teacherpreneur merges the image of the innovative classroom teacher with the risk-taking and entrepreneurial leadership that we commonly associate with those who create their own place in the professional world.

Teacherpreneurs are, first and foremost, imaginative teachers. They have created a classroom culture of creativity and reflection. They think beyond the classroom in terms of how to make lessons meaningful, and in so doing, might see a need elsewhere in school that their innovation can address.

As a result, they might request to go part-time in the classroom in order to use their other untapped skills to meet that need. The district or school itself might fund this “other part” of their job, or it might be funded through grants or other outside agencies.
