Explore possibilities beyond
Career coaching for teachers to help you make a confident choice about what's next.
I'm so lost, I wish I could just figure out what's right for me!
“I know schools need good teachers...but I'm tired and stressed, and I want work that's a better fit for me and what I want for my life.”
“I don't feel much joy in my work anymore - is there something better out there?”
“Should I stay or leave the classroom? The wavering back and forth is exhausting.”
“I'd love to leave teaching, but I don't know what else I'm qualified to do. I feel stuck here.”
“I have no idea how to figure out what's next. I've been down the LinkedIn rabbit hole and feel just as confused as ever.”
It's not your fault if teaching isn't working for you.
You didn't do anything wrong or choose the wrong career.
It's normal to doubt your career and wonder what else is out there.
In most other career fields it's 100% expected! Taking stock is critical for growth and change.
No wonder you feel stuck in the classroom.
The education system is built to hang onto you for your entire career.
Of course you don't know what else you could do for work.
You're surrounded by other teachers, so you don't have many examples of the alternatives.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Leaving the classroom was a huge step for me, and I was skeptical that I would find a job outside of the classroom. Laura helped me see more clearly what I had to offer and how my teaching experience could translate to other roles or industries, and I feel confident that my next steps are based on truths about my personality, strengths, interests, and values.
I harbored a lot of doubts about the extent to which my secondary-school-focused skill set was actually transferable to a novel context. I emerged from my work with Laura clear in my desire to transition to working in higher education and confident in both the applicability of my experience and my ability to communicate this in my application materials.
"As a mama of three young kiddos, I have been fairly disconnected from my professional self for the last 8 years. Laura guided me through a process that renewed confidence in my strengths, made connections between my past work and volunteer experiences, and left me excited about my future possibilities. I now have a more focused idea of what I'd like to do and a plan on how to get there.
