Ever since I was a little girl, managing finances has been a priority for me. Originally it started out as a mandate from my Dad in order to continue receiving my monthly allowance. Managing finances as a teacher was something I learned after spending way too much money on my classroom.
Now managing finances is a weekly priority as my husband and I work to stay out of debt and save for our future that allows us the freedom to spend and give our money as we see fit.
Managing Finances as a Teacher
This topic is near and dear to my heart because I want teachers to feel free with their money! However, so often we feel like it is our duty to spend our hard earned money on our students.
It’s not a bad thing, but I think it can lead to guilt and burnout. I want to free you from the idea that all your money needs to go back to your students or your classroom and instead give you some ideas and ways to get resources for your classroom without spending your money.
I brought Cody on this week so we could talk about how we manage our finances. This has been a top priority since before we got married. We didn’t join finances before tying the knot, but we did have a lot of talks and plans in place to set ourselves up for financial peace of mind.
I’d love for you to have a listen HERE. And I would especially love it if you shared it with your other teacher friends!!!
