REPURPOSING: Teachers are making extra money providing materials to their cash-strapped and time-limited colleagues on curriculum sharing sites like teacherspayteachers.com.

HOW IT HELPS: Many districts, teachers and parents say these sites are saving teachers time and money and giving educators a quick way to make extra income.

PUSHBACK: Some teachers may get pushback from administrators for their entrepreneurial efforts. Seattle Public Schools recently revised its ethics policy, with the new policy prohibiting teachers from selling anything they developed on district time.
