Teacher Summer Challenge: Getting Your Year in Gear!

Do you feel your head begin to spin when you think about planning for a new school year?

If so, then you're not alone! There's just so much to think about when getting ready for a new school year which means it's easy to get overwhelmed and forget all the details, even when you've taught for years. To make matters worse, often all those overwhelming feelings compound and send teachers into a year-long game of playing "catch-up."

Well, guess what? NOT. THIS. YEAR. FRIEND.

Join me and my good friend, Mary Beth from Brain Waves Instruction  this summer for a FREE power planning session like no other

The "Getting Your Year in Gear" challenge is designed to help you tackle the tasks and activities that will set you up for some MAJOR success this upcoming school year. In this challenge we will be covering the following themes:

  • Solutions for classroom design - everything from DIY projects to classroom décor themes - to help you create a classroom that is going to WOW your students!

  • Solutions to solve your biggest organizing and inventory challenges – We’ll get you started on organizing tasks that will improve your classroom!

When does the challenge start?

You can begin the challenge any time you’d like!

Since this is a self-paced challenge, we encourage you to get started whenever you are ready! 

We've been there. Teaching is tough enough without having to prep for a new school year. Even if you're heading into your 10th+ year of teaching, there's always that "Where do I begin?" thought that goes through your mind when you walk into that empty classroom before the school year begins.

We're here to help! This year, when it's back to school time, we want you to sit back with your feet up on the night before school starts knowing you're ready. BRING IT ON!
