Financially Free Teacher Favorite Advice
Here you will find the code of FFT. These are the top pieces of advice that FFT can give any educator. They must be respected, honored, and followed to be part of the Financially Free Teacher movement.
1. Pack a lunch as often and as much as possible when at school. Your health and wallet will thank you!
2. Have your checks directly deposited into your account. This will help you realize that automation is a major component for achieving financial freedom.
3. Keep your desk/office as organized as possible so you will have a clear desk= clear mind.
4. Personal days are like extra life tokens for a teacher. Use them wisely and on things that are going to recharge your battery!
5. Do this everyday as often as you need it!
6. When things get hard with a student, remind yourself that you might be the only positive interaction your student might have all day. You just might be the only person that shows them attention, praise, and brings them happiness!
7. Learn your salary guides, health care options, and other opportunities for additional income (tutoring, coaching, clubs, etc.)
8. Remember that faculty rooms are for eating, positive social interaction, and mental and physical rest, . Anything else isn't going to enhance your day.
9. Labeled folders on your desktop, stored lesson plans and work, and flash drives are the key to organization and future success.
10. Dress down days and fundraisers are great, however participating in all of them isn't necessary. Choose what resonates with you and your beliefs and feel proud of yourself for whatever you give.
