Teacher Empowerment

This program is so helpful in empowering teachers. There is ALWAYS something that we can improve, and this program helps you assess yourself, and strategize HOW to actually do it. It is all really in OUR hands, and if we are proactive, it translates into higher student achievemnent and happier days in the classroom.

Saved me my first year of teaching

This club is not structured to be time consumer in fact it helps you organize your time to be the most effective teacher in your classroom and home life. As a first year teacher, I felt like my time and schedule was missing something. I would be that teacher carrying home bags of papers and coming into school sometimes on weekends to prep or conquer something on my to do list. The 40 hour club gave me the ability to organize my work week to the point I was not taking as much home. It helped me learn more about time management and helped me be able to take a breath of fresh air and relax more on the weekends. I would recommend this to anyone looking for the extra hand and needs some inspiration to help organize their week.

Happy teacher, happy classroom

You will gain so much however much time and energy you are able to commit. The bonuses throughout the year make up the cost alone- putting in the time and effort to read and implement the strategies given weekly makes this the most profitable and economical way to spend your money to make a difference in your teaching career and change your classroom!

Work smarter, not harder.

The club will help you streamline your current processes. And the Facebook group helps with any issues you’re having that the club content does cover, or you want to explore further, and is invaluable.

Consistent and practical PD that’s worth the hype!

If you love being a teacher but find yourself overwhelmed by a lack of work-life balance, then this club is for you! Initially I hesitated to join because of the cost, but I was so happy I did! For around $10 a month, my membership helped me focus my planning, prioritize my time, and streamline systems at school and at home. I still have plenty to work on, but because I never lose access to the club material even after my year is up, I am confident that I can keep improving. After all, small changes add up to big results! If you are still on the fence, listen to Angela Watson’s podcasts or sign up for her webinars to get a feel for her style of coaching. You won’t be disappointed!

Small Changes = Big Results

A high quality program with lots of helpful advice, tools, and resources. I’m so glad that I took a chance and signed up. The price was so reasonable and the website will be so valuable in years to come. Thank you again for supporting teachers and children. It’s true that all the small changes really did add up to big results!

A Must Have

This club will help you get to a healthy, happy work-life balance. I went from working 60+ hours a week to 40-45 hours. The quality time I got back with my family and myself is priceless. I recommend this group to any teacher at any stage of their career and life.

I’m Glad I Joined

We’re on a tight budget and don’t have money to burn, so deciding whether to join the club was a difficult decision for me financially. I’m so glad I joined! The club offers many practical ideas and strategies for balancing work and family life, there is lots of support (both emotional support and suggestions for solutions to individual problems) available through the Facebook group, and everything Angela talks about is stated with positivity and encouragement. Because teaching special ed is a little different than having a self-contained classroom, not all of the materials applied to me directly, but there was something of personal value to me every week. I still struggle with spending too much time on schoolwork, but I have made notable improvement with my club membership and am determined to keep working on the goal of finding better life balance.

Don’t Stress!

It’s okay to fall behind! I basically went full force for about 3 weeks, then didn’t look at the material for almost 2 months. I caught up at my own pace and used the podcasts to listen on my long commute. This helped a lot. Most of the material is extremely useful, even for experienced teachers, but I didn’t need all of it or I didn’t try to change it all at once. Sometimes we just need someone to break us from our tunnel vision.

Lifeline

The 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club provided encouragement and support during a very tough year. I wanted to join the club the first time I heard about it on the Truth for Teachers Podcast; however, I did not realize how important it would become in the next few months. I experienced several personal challenges that made it necessary for me to reassess how I spend my time. The well-planned weekly materials provided just enough to give me strategies to become more intentional about many areas of my life.
