My First Post

This is my first blog entry. I just went through my monthly budget and determined that I could afford the membership fee right now. I am in the very beginning process of starting a school. So early in the process, it doesn’t even have a name yet!

Here’s what I do have:

  • A year off from teaching (I’ll either be an ed tech in the classroom I’ve been teaching this school year, or get another job) so that I can concentrate on working on starting the school.
  • A lot of ideas, passion, and excitement about the future possibilities.
  • 9 people who have “liked” the Facebook page I made.
  • Emails with advice from a lot of people around the country who are currently running their own similar schools.
  • The requirements for starting a private school in my state.
  • A timeline for what needs to be done in order to start a school.

Here is what I do not have:

  • A location (I live in a small apartment so I can’t exactly run a school in there!)
  • Money
  • A spouse or significant other who would support me financially while I get the school up and running.

I have to somehow come up with starting funds, and I have to somehow have a way to get it running quickly so that I will at least be able to pay myself a living wage so that I don’t have to live in my car.

I would love to hear from anyone who has experience funding the start up of a school!

Thanks… I’m looking forward to learning as much as I can.
