Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Day with Heather Cooper
Think about your favorite teacher ever. We’re sure it isn’t hard to pinpoint him/her since your teacher still makes a lasting impression 10, 20, maybe 30 years later.
Today, on Teacher Appreciation Day, we want to say “Thank You” to all teachers. We want you to know that we appreciate all the amazing work you do in and out of your classrooms every day.
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Day, we’re spotlighting full-time teacher and Independent Specialist, Heather Cooper. Read her inspiring story below.
What inspired you to become a teacher?
My mom. When I was growing up she was a preschool teacher and then she started her own preschool. She showed me how much joy teaching brought to her life. Teaching brings me as much joy as I saw with my mom growing up. There isn’t a day in the classroom that I don’t laugh and smile!
What inspired you to join EVER as an Independent Specialist?
I was part of the clinical trials and fell in love with the products, so I signed up for the discount. I never imagined how much the business would take off for me. Two years later, I am a Director level Specialist and lead a team of 150 Independent Specialists.
What has been your favorite part of being a teacher?
My favorite part of being a teacher is trying new things. I love the challenge of taking on a different approach to teaching Math or a new Unit of Study in reading and writing. The children are so engaged when they see the excitement I have for a new writing project or math game!
What has been your favorite part of being an EVER Independent Specialist?
The relationships I have made. I never would have met these women who are such a huge part of my life without EVER. These women lift me up and inspire me everyday!
How does the flexible EVER opportunity fit into your full-time career? How do you find balance?
I work my EVER business around my teaching day and our family activities. I spend a lot of my lunch breaks coaching team members and following up with customers. Every Sunday, I create a list of what I want to do for my business during the week so that when I get a moment, I can get right to work. I also make use of driving my children from place to place. After I have dropped them off I use the quiet drive home to listen to webinars, calls, touch base Tuesdays, or make a call to a customer or team member. I do most of my business through one-on-one meet ups or via social media, texting, online socials which keeps my evenings free at home to be with my family. EVER truly fits into the nooks and crannies of my life!
How has EVER changed your life?
EVER has created an incredible opportunity for our family to pay off debt and do extras without taking away from our full time job paychecks. Last summer we went to Disneyland and my “little white card” took care of all of the expenses for our family of five. I love my husband says we have our vacation deposit due and I can say, “I’ve got that covered”. I am also saving up to buy my husband a truck! I can not wait for the moment I tell him that I have saved enough!*
What is your favorite EVER product and why?
My favorite EVER product is PURIFY Deep Clean Detox Mask! I love how this product clears out my pores and creates a super clean face every week. I usually put the mask on during the end of a weekend while I write my list of things to do. It’s my Sunday ritual!!!
