We Meet the Author of the 'School Counselor Side Hustle'


The average pay for Florida teachers ranks 46th in the country among the states. That’s according the National Education Association’s annual ranking. And, according to ZipRecruiter, school counselor’s pay in Florida ranks 49th in the nation. Statistics like this make it easy to see why many teachers are challenged to make ends meet. Enter the 'side hustle' -- a way to make money on the side using the expertise and skills a school counselor or educator already has in abundance. For teachers eyeing the long hot summer ahead wondering what to do with that time, there’s now a guidebook called “School Counselor Side Hustle” that aims to make that time off profitable. We're joined by its author, Florida Gulf Coast University graduate professor, Dr. Russell A. Sabella.
