Good stuff, hard to use

I think this program is most useful for people who already have some strong organization skills and existing uninterrupted spare time. The files are lengthy PDFs, which take time to get through, or audio files that must be listened to in a browser or downloaded. No podcast-style streaming option, which makes them difficult to use. I did not have time to make use of many of the resources, but I hope to go back to them over the summer.

Not worth the money

I thought it would be helpful to see a review that’s not 5 stars. I felt the course was overwhelming. Even though I tried many of Angela’s suggestions it just didn’t work for me.

  1. I can understand that for sure and I appreciate you sharing your experience! We are restructuring the program for the July 2020 cohort to make the course more manageable and less overwhelming. Everything for the month will be released up front, so you can download it all at once instead of feeling like you have to keep up every week. We’re also going to have Core Concepts which are ONE set of materials that everyone should explore during the month. The rest of the materials will be optional extensions, so folks can go deeper if and when they want to. This should make it easier to explore the key ideas in the program without getting bogged down with too many options. I hope the updated version–if you choose to utilize it–is a better fit for you. Thanks for giving the club a try!

Great program to help people who love what they do

I started the club in mid-year, January 2019 Cohort, and still got lots of ideas of ways to improve, make more efficient, delegate, and be more focused. I got something each week I read the PDF file. There were times, I found her resources helpful. There were a couple of times, I made my own similar form tailored to my specific teaching needs. Even though my year is over, I have begun going back and reviewing the months and taking even more notes. I have trimmed a significant amount of time off of my work week. I’m hoping to continue to slim down a little bit more. Overall, it was a great program that met my needs as I could read and listen as my schedule allowed!!!!


There is so much information each month that I couldn’t keep up. As a veteran teacher, much did not apply and I am too busy to weed through each month. I felt it wasn’t worth it for me.

Need More Time!

While some of the topics seemed valuable, I found very little time to implement them. Starting in January may not have been the best decision for me, for I rarely had time to read and do the suggestions. I think beginning in July or even October would have worked better for me. Also, I noticed that a lot of the information did not apply to high school teachers and in particular teachers in non-subject areas.

  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice
    blog like this one these days.

  2. Take as much time as you need! 🙂 You keep your access to the membership site and Facebook group even when your year as a member is up. So, you can go back through at your own pace and review the things you missed. If you found that certain weeks weren’t as helpful for your particular teaching context (and I think that will be true for everyone), skip those materials altogether and you’ll have even fewer things you need to catch up on. Just focus your energy on the strategies that will make the biggest difference for you. If you want suggestions on adapting anything, let us know in the Facebook group and we’ll help.
