Last night I finished my final planner update. All 5 designs have now been updated for the 2016-2017 school year. If you've purchased one of my planners in the past, please redownload!
All 5 designs are 20% off April 23rd - 25th. Remember: each year you get to download the updates for FREE! All material is the same in each set, just with different themes and fonts. The planners are also editable so you can change the content to fit your needs!
A little background on my planners... Back in 2011 when I started teaching I bought an Erin Condren teacher planner as a gift to myself for working so hard to get my teaching degree. I absolutely loved the colors, fun quotes, beautiful design, etc. But after using the planner my first year teaching, I quickly realized that I truly only liked half of what the planner really offered. I didn't use a lot of the extra pages included, but wanted different pages in my planner instead. I wanted to be able to customize different parts, didn't care for writing in my own dates, etc. And the biggest turn off -- the price on a teacher's salary. I couldn't imagine spending $50 a year on something I was only visually in love with.
That next summer I created my own planner and haven't looked back. I took what I loved about the EC planner and made it my own. For a fraction of the cost I print the planner myself and put it together with the Arc discbound binder system from Staples. I like being able to add in pages throughout the year, only include the pages I need for my calendar, and being able to type in my vacation dates, PTCs, and more. I see other teachers ordering stickers for their EC to customize it and give it a cohesive look (rather than handwriting dates and to change section titles) and that just kills me. I can't even imagine spending that extra money on top of what it already costs for the planner itself. But hey, that's me. ;)
Here is what some customers say about my teacher planners:
"Absolutely love this set! I teach Middle School, so I spent a few hours editing the "Weekly Planning Template" into pages for my needs (Monday - Friday, Periods 1 - 5). I am SO thankful to have such an adorable EDITABLE template AND matching covers, calendars, notes sheets... everything I need in one place. I will be printing all pages then binding together in a spiral. My co-workers will be SO jealous! I've already sent your link to several of them! Thanks again for a great product." - Kelli S.
"I love this... it's like having an Erin Condren planner for a fraction of the cost." - Janita S.
"Absolutely wonderful planner! I had everything that I wanted and even things that I didn't realize I needed. I love that this has everything an elementary teacher needs but also is easily tailored to a secondary teacher. I also love that she added matching spines! Great product and great seller." - Anonymous Buyer
"After 4 hours of going through different lesson planners I am so pleased to have your chosen yours! It looks amazing and with a 7 day a week calendar it is perfect for my summer lessons which i do seven days a week with my kids to prevent the summer slide. Thank you!" - NVW
"This is a well thought out, fantastic product. I'm so glad I bought it now so I can play with it and edit it while I'm at school. I really appreciate that you update it. That is such a money saver. This product is worth every penny, and it's not expensive when compared to other planners." - Mrs. Morganelli
