If you are like most of my followers, you are a teacher who is looking for a career alternative. You may already be at the stage of total burnout, or maybe you are concerned that you are fast approaching burnout.
What you know is that you are stressed out, and your stress is bleeding over into other areas of your life. It's affecting your health and may even be affecting your closest relationships.
I am a former educator who is now a Heart-Centered Career Transition & Job Search Coach who specializes in coaching, counseling, and advising burnt-out teachers on their many career options.
I have been in your shoes. My proven system will show you how to reignite your passion and redirect your skills and experience into a new, fulfilling career.
Work should be fulfilling and FUN!
While I know that teaching can be tremendously rewarding, the sad fact is that much of the fun is gone from the profession these days.

“After experiencing a major life transition, I was considering finally pursuing my dream to relocate from the east to west coast. As a teacher, I was looking for a coach who understood the specific needs and challenges of a teacher in transition and someone who was well-connected and could provide me with resources and contacts to help me make a very informed decision. Kitty was exactly the kind of coach I needed. She was so responsive to my needs and provided me with the contacts, resources, and guidance I needed to make a confident, informed decision during a very challenging time in my life.” ~ Kathleen D., Teacher
If you have been wishing, hoping, or dreaming about a new job or career, perhaps it's time to stop dreaming and take action. There is no time like now to get started. So, what is holding you back?
Few people appreciate everything that goes into a successful job search or career change. There so so many things to take into account. Where do you even start? How do you know what to do? This class will help you,
The most challenging question every job seeker faces is that of "What do you want to do now?" If you don't know, it's time to think about it. If you could do anything, what would it be?
If your resume screams that you are a teacher who doesn't want to teach anymore, you won't get anywhere. Your resume needs to speak to the job you want, not the one you have.
Your cover letter should explain why you are leaving your current career and want to embark on a new one. Don't make the mistake most people make with their cover letter. Write a compelling one.
Have you spent quality time on your LinkedIn profile since you set up the account years ago? Do you have an up-to-date headshot? Is the cover photo cusomized? Have you customized your LinkedIn URL? Just a few things to think about.
You won't find your dream job sitting at your desk. You need to get out and meet people. Find groups who are interested in the same jobs or professions that you want to pursue. Attend Meetup groups. Meet people! Get introductions!
If you don't know how to talk about yourself in your interview, you will never get offered the job. Learn how to present yourself with confidence and poise. Know what questions to anticipate. Be prepared. Do your research. Get hired!
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kitty on my career transition and also getting to know her personally. She has been encouraging and supportive while walking with me on my journey. Kitty has been the key to helping me develop my LinkedIn page, refine my resume to the latest standards and giving me a better way to express myself when writing cover letters.
Although I came into this professional relationship knowing what I wanted to do, I can appreciate her knowledge and ability to guide people through the exploration process by asking the right questions to promote the right kind of personal exploration.” ~ Donnovan M., Former Teacher & School Administrator

I remember when I was at my own point of burnout. Ironically, it didn't happen while I was working as a teacher and elementary school librarian which I did for 33 years. It happened while I was President of the Virginia Education Association from 2008-2012.
When it was time for my term to end, I was on track to go back to my school district, but my new assignment meant teaching middle school English. I hadn't taught English since 1980. And the job had worn me out then, when I was in my 20's.
I wasn't in my 20's anymore. I knew I didn't have the physical stamina for the job. I also knew that I didn't want to have to learn the state standards or participate in the testing regimen that I don't believe is in the best interest of children.
What to do?
After much soul searching, I realized I only had one choice. I had to quit. If I couldn't bring my best effort tot the job (and I knew I wouldn't be able to) that was my only real option.
The decision to leave education was not only a difficult one, it put me at a career crossroads. I was totally unprepared to do anything other than teach or be a school librarian! Or at least that is what I thought.
Then I hired a career coach.
She helped me see the many other alternatives that I had. And here I am today.
I first became a certified Life Strategies and Stress Management Coach. Then I got training as a Career Transition and Job Search Coach and worked with an international career coaching company for fourteen months. I later added certifications in Holistic LIfe and Sleep Science Coaching.
I now help teachers reignite their passion and redirect their skills and experience into new fulfilling careers.
I have helped dozens of teachers like Michelle (above in the Case Study) who have hit the wall of burnout find ways to manage their stress and discover new ways to approach their careers.
This Master Class will be your first step toward claiming the freedom you crave if you are experiencing burnout of your own.
