Deanna Jump, Georgia Kindergarten Teacher, Becomes Self-Made Millionaire By Selling Lesson Plans Online

10/01/2012 – Deanna Jump, a 43-year-old kindergarten teacher, has unexpectedly become a self-made millionaire — by selling her lesson plans to other teachers. Like most teachers, Jump didn’t expect to be a big money tycoon in education, and she and her husband struggled to pay the bills while supporting their three children. But three years ago, a colleague who thought Jump’s lesson plans were extremely effective encouraged Jump to share her lesson plans on TeachersPayTeachers.com.

The site was created by Paul Edelman in 2006. The former teacher, recognizing teachers’ unforgiving hours and limited resources, wanted to offer educators a way to help each other — and make money while sharing their ideas. TPT now allows educators to post original materials, allowing others to download the content for $5 to $9 per lesson. About 1.1 million registered users are on the site, totaling about $14 million in earnings, CNN reports. Most teachers are paying for the lessons out of their own pockets.
