Knowing those folks you do in education, how many of them made the big bucks? Yeah, I know, I almost died laughing just writing that. Because we all know that the answer is: None. When we go into education, we do not do so for the money. We do it because we believe in the importance and power of education and because we believe in and love children. It's that simple.
Did y'all know that at least 60% of teachers supplement their income just to make ends meet? Yep. They bartend, the drive Lyft/Uber, work in afterschool programs, get into sales...I have no idea where they find their energy but they do and some of them work up to 2 jobs outside of their teaching position. I'm not going to get on my soapbox about this because most of you not only have heard it but believe the same thing I do about this issue.
The point today is that I know, personally, a few teachers at our school who supplement their income and I'd like to try and help them out. The really great thing about their second jobs is, these ladies believe in their what they're doing. If you have to have a second job to supplement your income, it's a HUGE bonus if you can stand behind that job or the product.
First up is one of our super sweet and amazing kindergarten teachers, Stacey. She decided to sell LuLaRoe clothing because she loves their clothes. I don't blame her. The stuff is adorable and so comfortable! If you teach, it's professional yet allows you to get on the floor with the kiddos with no discomfort. You don't even have to worry about getting the clothes dirty as they wash up quite nicely. Of course, the clothes are perfect for many other professions as well!
|That's Stacey. Isn't she the cutest?|
|Our speech pathologist. She's the best around here. Probably the best in the state and beyond. And adorable in that LuLaRoe dress.|
|Two of our amazing third-grade teachers looking stylish in their LuLaRoe leggings and tunics!|
|Stacey and Tina who is going to be a first time grandma in December! No worries, Tina, LuLaRoe washes up nicely!|
|Jessie and Stacey. Both in LuLaRoe. Jessie teaches CD now but she was DoodleBug's first grade teacher at the same school!|
|This is the lovely Giinny who teaches in kindergarten. There is not a sweeter person in all the world as this lady.|
|How stinkin' cute are these gals? The two on the left teach CD and the two on the right teach in kindergarten. So much easier to get down on the floor with comfortable clothing!|
One thing I love about the teachers at school who have jobs on the side is that each of them actually stands behind the product or the company, just like they stand behind teaching and give it all they've got every single day, INCLUDING SUMMERS.
I asked Stacey what she would like people to know about LuLaRoe:
- they offer dresses, skirts, tops, leggings, kimonos, and wraps
- their clothing is COMFORTABLE
- they have a wonderful range in sizes: XS-3XL
- they have clothes for kids including leggings, tops, and dresses
- patterns change often and only a few pieces are cut so grab what you like when you see itk (I like this because not everyone will be wearing the same thing I am)
- items are purchased at in-home pop-ups so you can try your favorites on
- items can also be purchased online
- the company promotes a positive and supportive culture for women working together to make their lives and their families lives better
- the company takes part in random acts of kindness and fundraisers
Bottom line: The clothes are of good quality, comfortable, and affordable (not even kidding about this!) and suitable for just about any profession or just for running around town or watching football on the weekends. Versatility is wonderful, isn't it? AND, LuLaRoe offers employment opps! It's all around winning!
If you click on any of the links, they should send you to Stacey's LuLaRoe FB page where you can ask to be added to the group. IF this doesn't work, let me know and I'll ask Stacey what I did wrong. :)
Thanks, y'all! It's nice to help a Sista out!
