Hi! I’m Lily.
I taught kindergarten and first grade for seven years in the San Francisco Bay Area. I LOVED teaching, but I never felt like I had enough time to spend on the things I really loved. I also felt like I never had enough money. After my first couple years of teaching, I started taking on side jobs. I began writing curriculum for a summer camp that I had worked at, then gradually got more and more writing jobs.
That’s when it hit me. I realized I could get paid for doing the things I was already doing in my classroom. I wrote content for Ed Tech companies (many of whom didn’t have educators on staff but wanted to launch educational products), developed curriculum for organizations like National Novel Writing month, and started my own summer camp.
When I had my first child in 2012, I decided that my side hustle could become my main hustle. I developed a consulting business that allowed me the flexibility to spend time with my baby while quickly doubling my teaching income.
In 2015, I had my second child and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to launch a product-based business, Curiosity Pack, where I create educational activities that bring families together around joyful learning, inspiring kids to change the world.
Through consulting and starting Curiosity Pack, I was able to triple my teaching income while spending the majority of my time with my young kids. Best of all, I was able to stay in education while expanding my impact to serve more and more teachers, families, and kids.
Let me help you do the same! Teachers put so much into helping everyone else. It’s time to spend time doing what YOU do best and build the life you dream of.
