The Teacher Binders have been updated!! The calendars are ready to go for the next school year! YAY! That means teacher organization is done for you (well, almost 😉 This means one less thing on your plate. Let me run through the download to show you all that you can get. I don’t normally write these type of posts but with the many daily questions I get, I thought it would be best to condense them all in one spot. I apologize for the length of this post! There are just SO MANY forms in this resource!

And —-I am now offering all the covers–COVERS ONLY–in ONE DOWNLOAD!!!  YAY!!!  This is one of my top requests! Sometimes you just really want the cover!  This is a growing bundle. I’ll be adding new covers as I add them to the BUNDLE BELOW. The only difference is that the “Covers Only” file also has all the designs in my shop. No forms or calendars, etc.

Right now the Covers Only and the BINDER BUNDLE downloads are ON SALE for 50% off!! Just through tonight Sunday, April 23 until 11:00pm central.

Some good news and some bad news: bad news is that due to a number of personal reasons, including moving to a city 3.5 hours away in less than 2 months, I will not be offering printed planners this year.  This was the toughest business decision to make this year. I love designing and packaging new planners for you and have enjoyed it these past 4 years but this year, I couldn’t keep physical products.

The good news is…Melanie, from Schoolgirl Style, and I have something up our sleeves that I think you will love!  Stay tuned!  This will be announced later this week.

Teacher Binder

I’ve come a long way since starting in 2012! Let me show you…

First of all, these editable teacher binders are for the do-it-yourself project person. And that basically means: any teacher. 🙂 You download the files, including pdfs and Power Point files. If you would like to personalize the documents on the computer, you must have Power Point.

I have also added new covers in the Teacher Binder Bundle HERE!  The download comes with 55+ cover choices and binder spines.

teacher organization

There are 3 sections: a planner for daily/weekly lessons, a calendar, and organizational forms.

The calendar includes a 2 page and 1 page view. The calendar is updated yearly and includes a calendar for international teachers whose school year runs January-December.

*lesson plan templates (must have Power Point); templates are a table so you can easily adjust the sizes to accommodate your needs.
