TeachersPayTeachers Teachers Cash In

TEACHERS CASH IN: Spectacular year for hardworking kindergarten teacher, Deanna Jump, who earned $405,000 on TeachersPayTeachers in 2011, a hefty bonus on her $57K teaching salary. (EdSurge profiled Deanna here.) The next four top sellers also had extraordinary years, earning between $116,000 and $76,300; the next group of 20 top sellers averaged about $30,750. The work these teachers has put in is impressive: check out the top selling item, a 350-page unit plan for The Hunger Games. At $15, we'd call that a bargain.
