WILLIAMSBURG-Tiffany Beardsley had been employed as a teacher for more than 18 years before she was forced to resign November 2, 2020, due to the covid-19 pandemic. Though she was lined up to start teaching her fourth-grade students remotely when stay-at-home mandates went into effect, the Virginia school system she taught for at the time had a stipulation written into its teachers’ contracts that instructors with preschoolers at home were exempt from teaching virtually.
Beardsley’s two children were both preschoolers at the time. “I don’t know if you know any teachers, but we’re usually super-duper type A personalities who need to stay busy,” said Beardsley.
Making the most of her newfound time, Bearsley’s next career plan was born while she was reorganizing her home.
“I was going through my daughter’s closet, and I became really aware of much clothing I was boxing up as she was moving to her next size,” said Beardsley. “Some of the clothing still had tags on it, and I became almost obsessed with how much waste I felt like I was creating.”
