Career Change Masterclass for Michigan Teachers Seeking a New Profession; Begins July 9

With up to 10,000 teachers in Michigan leaving the profession annually and new research announced in April 2024 showing schools in Michigan could lose 5,100 teaching jobs in the next few years as federal pandemic aid ends, Michigan teachers ready for a career change can turn to a virtual career coaching program this summer. MyCoach for Teachers is a masterclass group of four online sessions helping teachers explore how they can utilize their many skills in a new form of employment.

The program runs from 10 a.m. to 11. 30 a.m. on July 9, 11, 16 and 18 and is offered by Gesher Human Services, one of the largest human service agencies in metro Detroit. The course fee is $50, and teachers will be given assessments to identify their skills and strengths for a new career path, take a career inventory, discuss toxic work environments and how that can impede a job search, build their confidence and gain hope for the future with their coaches. The program will also provide resume assistance, job search advice and opportunities for professional growth. For more information go to the events page at
