Classroom Crashers! :: Primary Press

Are you thinking about your room for next year?  Some of you might be!  You might be gathering ideas, dreaming already… Well, my friend, Vickie, from Primary Press has a cute classroom set-up!  In the past she went with primary colors and polka dots.  So super cute.  But not only that, it is set up for LEARNING.  I love all the colors!

I love the reading nook with questions readers can ask themselves while reading.



I also love how print rich her room is!  She has everything labeled.  Perfect for kindergartners and first grade.

To check out more pictures, head to her blog for more ideas!!

Have a great week y’all! xo, April

Last Call! Teacher Appreciation Giveaway ends tomorrow night (Monday)!

Hey Teacher Friends!

I hope you enjoyed the weekend!  I posted something on Instagram that I thought I would share here too in case you don’t have Instagram.



“I think it’s so interesting that Mother’s Day comes at the end of teacher appreciation week. For some children you are the best that they have. After 11 years of teaching and 6 years of being a mama I agree with this so much….”Children are not a distraction from the important work. They are the important work.” –John Trainer. We are here to do the important work so here’s a toast to you teachers and mamas. And as my aunt said this morning….”to all mothers and those who give and love with a mothers’ heart, I 💗 you! “

So here’s to all of you out there!  Cheers!

This is also just a reminder about the AMAZING giveaway going on over at The Applicious Teacher Blog.


Lots and Lots to win!  From me, you’ll receive a printed planner!!  So head over there now.  And of course…you don’t wanna miss the other goodies!  From techie stuff to fashion.  This giveaway has it all!!!

Have a great week Teacher Friends!!

A Little Video

Just a quick post today. Many of you were wondering about the inside pages of the Personal Planner for Teachers.

What is REALLY inside of it?

So, I put together a little video with some help from my friend, Adrianne.


There are 2 main parts to the personal planner:

1. a calendar (August 2015-July 2016) both monthly and weekly

2. a must-have section for teachers:

including student info., contact info., and curriculum overview

I hope you like it!

If you have ANY questions.  Please do not hesitate to ask.  Just send me an email to helloamodernteacher@gmail.com

xo, April

Bianca - I absolutely love this and need this in my life. I usually just take my grade book and or ipad to grade level/faculty meetings or conferences. But I really love the feel of a “hard copy” to jot down anecdotal notes, dates, etc. Can’t wait to get this!! You just made this teacher’s life a little ,ore simpler!! 😀

amodernteacher@gmail.com - YAY!! Thanks so much Bianca!!! xo

2015 Spring Lookbook

Hey Teacher Friends!

Is the sun shining in your hometown today?  I hope so!  Here in central Texas, it is out!  I LOVE this time of the year.  School is winding down, summer is just around the corner.  It is warm enough to get out in the sun–a place I always want to be.

To much of my delight, several people expressed a request to have all the planners in one place.  I LOVED the idea.  Although Melanie and I have put together an emagazine in the past HERE and HERE, I’ve never shared a Lookbook.  Well, now it is here!  A place to see all the Teacher Binders and Planners in one place. Just click on the link with the green box.

I hope you like it and you find it helpful! Have a great week! xo, April (Just click on the image to see all the designs)

Have a great week! xo, April

Giveaway Winner Announced! plus some updates

Well, what do you think?  Did you like this year’s new designs?  I truly, truly hope you do. More importantly, as much as I love creating the designs, I truly hope this is a functional planner and organizer you can use on a daily basis in your classroom.  I want it to function so well and allow you to not worry about the “other” pieces of teaching…like organization.  Sure, if you’re like me you like to organize, but most importantly, we love teaching first.  I hope to give you more time to do just that.

As far as last year’s designs….



Happy Day:

A Modern Teacher Planner

Owl (another Schoolgirl Style favorite):

Polka Dots:

Rainbow Chalkboard:

They’ve been updated.  I trimmed the excess pages on these designs.  I felt like the download was a bit overwhelming last year and although it was great, I’m trying to simplify everything.  The calendars have been updated in all previous planners.

You can find everything in Schoolgirl Style’s Shop or my TpT store.

You can also find amteacher’s personal planner HERE ON THE BLOG.

And now for the GIVEAWAY WINNER:

The winner is KAYDI SHAW!!!!!  I’ve already sent you an email so check your inbox or spam folder! Please respond within one week.  Thank you SO much!!  AND thank you to everyone for entering!!!!!

What’s that you say?  You didn’t win?  Well, guess what?  Melanie and I are putting together a HUGE giveaway for Teacher Appreciation.  And I have a couple more surprises I’ve been working on for the last few months to share with you.  All coming right around the corner!

Have a great Friday!!  I’m off on a field trip with my son.  Praying for good weather!!
