We’ve all wondered about that at some point, and I bet these thoughts sound familiar, too:
I’m Angela Watson. As a National Board Certified teacher and instructional coach, I’ve been sharing ideas online since 2003 through my website, TruthforTeachers.com. I’ve written 5 books, created countless printable resources, and even launched a top-rated weekly podcast called Truth for Teachers.
I love teaching teachers, and I wanted to help people who love teaching kids stay in the profession without hitting burnout.
So, I’ve dedicated the past 7 years to developing and refining the club materials to create a proven system that has freed thousands of educators to be their best selves, both in and outside of the classroom.
Founder of The 40 Hour Teacher Workweek
The average teacher joining our program works 62 hours per week. Upon completion, the average member works just 52 hours in a typical week.
Join either program with a one-time payment (NOT a perpetual membership fee) so you can keep your access to the materials forever. Payment plans, purchase orders, and DonorsChoose funding can also be used.
Each week for six weeks, Fast Track will help you get immediate relief from working too many hours and feeling drained all the time. It focuses on just the MOST impactful strategies from the Full Year program:

Week 2: Reduce and Prioritize Tasks
Week 3: Get Papers, Digital Files, and Lesson Materials Organized
Week 4: Set Up Systems for a Self-Running Classroom
Week 5: Simplify Your Lesson Planning Process
Week 6: Streamline Grading and Assessment
