Deanna Jump and her husband were struggling to pay the bills on their teachers' salaries — until a colleague suggested a way to make some money on the side.
The central Georgian teacher took her colleague's suggestion and began selling her road-tested lesson plans online at a site where teachers can buy teaching materials from other teachers. With 17 years of teaching experience in her back pocket, Jump became the site's top seller, recently passing the million dollar mark as a seller at TeachersPayTeachers.com.
Jump still teaches full time at Central Fellowship Christian Academy and says her lifestyle has not really changed. She's just glad that she can now pay her bills, help out family members in need, and use her expertise to help other teachers.
