Hey there 👋
My name is Ann. I am a former elementary school/ESL teacher who pivoted out of the classroom in 2019. Since then, I've worked as a Project Associate, Instructional Technology Coach, Learning Experience Designer and now as a Product Operations Manager with an edtech company.
There were various reasons why I wanted to change career but the main one was because I was an active-duty military spouse for 9 years. Due to the constant moving, I struggled with finding employment as well as keeping up with all the licensing requirements. That's when I knew teaching was no longer for me.
When I started my job search, I had a hard time finding free resources that were relevant to my background as a teacher. I didn't know how to translate my teaching skills to a new role/industry and I didn't have the financial means to pay for professional services either.
I created The Pivoter to help other career changers like myself. I know switching career is not easy but it can be done. My hope is that these free resources can help make the pivot a bit smoother.
I run on coffee and if you think what I created is helpful, buy me a cup to help keep me going.
