5-Stars!

This club has helped me streamline not only my life at school, but also my life at home. I love that the information is presented in manageable chunks and that I will be able to go back through the materials again in future years to continue becoming even more productive. When I’m at school I feel like I hear Angela whispering in my ear, reminding of the tidbits that I have learned. I rarely bring work home anymore and have found I am happier and more content all-around. The list-making system and the mindset shifts in general on how I approach teaching have been the greatest help to me!

Peace

Through the club, I am learning to prioritize and be more focused. As I set boundaries around my personal time and work time, I have found a peace and enjoy my personal time without guilt for not working all hours.

Great in theory

There is a ton of good information. Sadly, I haven’t had/made the time to listen to or read most of it.

Applicable to specialists too!

I was hesitant about joining the club, because as a SPED Resource Room teacher, my job is very different from many other teachers. And sure, some of the content has been less relevant to my position, but the majority is either highly useful to me or can be adapted to be so. We all need to plan and use our time wisely, keep paperwork and materials organized, bond with students, communicate with parents, and keep up with our to-do lists. Angela’s lessons have helped me shave huge chunks of time off my days, and the mindset shift she’s given me has even helped me complete my SPED-specific duties more quickly and effectively.

Lots of Organization Assistance

The club is great for special educators too!

Unquestionably Worth Every Penny

I enrolled in this after reading many reviews, and have so appreciated the wealth of wisdom and tried-and-true techniques and materials. In particular, the list system itself has saved me hours upon hours, but of even greater importance, has drastically relieved stress. The paper management opened my eyes to some aspects I had missed for over 28 years of teaching. With all candor, not a single week’s content has missed the mark, and I have found this program invaluable–truly.

Becoming the Best You Can Be

No matter how long you’ve been teaching, you’ll be inspired by all of the amazing educators and resources from this group. You’ll be able to take away at least one gem each week to help you become the best educator you can be. This has been an invaluable resource for me this year, and I can’t wait to keep reflecting on it and using it for the years to come!

Inspirational

Best set of ideas so far:
Avoid shiny object syndrome. Instead go with MVP (minimum viable product). Each time you say yes to a perfect lesson plan, you are, in effect, saying no to a number of other things you wanted to achieve. No to getting the marking done. No to exercise plans. No to diet resolutions and cooking healthier meals. No to low stress family time.
Hence, now I recognize that I have shiny object syndrome – and now I can work on continuous improvement of lesson plans and resources I already own! Thanks; it was worth the club fee just for this alone!

Worth every penny

In only a few months, I have learned so much valuable information. I’ve reconsidered my homework policy, learned how to keep the main thing the main thing, and have become so much more productive. The value of this club exceeds the “tuition.” It is worth every penny and I can’t recommend it enough.

Specialists Review

Angela’s organizational systems and techniques helped me to not be overwhelmed this year. All the materials are fantastic and work with any subject areas. I highly recommend this club to all special area teachers!
