@oristarA,
In the context of the article, teachers hustle means that they (the teachers), cannot afford to pay their expenses (rent, phone, electric, etc.) on their salary from teaching. In order to manage and avoid debt, they get an additional job.

Sturgis is right.

However, and I'm showing my age here, whenever I hear the word "hustle", part of me always thinks back to this.....
