I joined the club after my first two years of teaching. I had a lot I was still figuring out and I can be somewhat disorganized. The club absolutely exceeded my expectations and was a complete game changer for me. I love professional development and have taken a lot of classes and workshops. This one is hands down the best one I have taken part in because of the wide variety of topics covered. This club helped me in all aspects of my teaching. One thing I really struggled with was balance. I am the person who takes care of everyone but myself and then my health suffers. I feel like I can do more in less time now, take care of myself, take care of my family, and I am happier in all areas of my life. It takes work, and it is a journey not a destination, meaning that I am taking it one step at a time and still have a lot of improvements to make. That is the great thing about the club, you have access even after the year is over so you can go back to topics to review, or work through the material at your own pace. I can’t thank Angela enough for putting this all together. If you do the work and are open to change this can make a huge difference for you. I am now reading one of Angela’s books and I signed up for the graduate program so this club will continue to be part of my journey as a teacher, wife, mother, and for myself.
