There HAS to be a more sustainable way to teach.

We’ve all wondered about that at some point, and I bet these thoughts sound familiar, too:

 

I love teaching, but it consumes every spare minute.

I work on school stuff constantly and yet I’m never done.

No matter how much I accomplish, I still feel like it’s not enough.

When I bring work home, I feel guilty for neglecting my family.

When I don’t bring work home, I feel like I’m neglecting my students.

I want to be a great teacher AND have time for other things that matter in my life.

That constant pressure to do more...

Here's what I do to help.

I’m Angela Watson. As a National Board Certified teacher and instructional coach, I’ve been sharing ideas online since 2003 through my website, TheCornerstoneforTeachers.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 5 years to developing and refining the club materials to create a proven system that has freed thousand sof educators to be their best selves, both in and outside of the classroom.

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 1: Create a Sustainable Work Schedule
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

Fast Track does not include anything for back-to-school, end-of-year close out, or any other seasonal materials.

It also does not include resources for student engagement, tech tools, work/life balance, homework, parent communication, and several other topics you’ll find in Full Year.

Fast Track is perfect for teachers who:

  • Don’t want to be overwhelmed with a lot of material to sort through
  • Don’t want to commit to a year-long program
  • Need to get quick results in the middle of the school year
  • Want to learn the strategies in less time at a lower cost
  • Like to skip to the “best stuff” and prefer summaries to in-depth explorations

Join as early as June 7th!

The full year course is the original 40 Hour Teacher Workweek program that’s had proven results in over 28,000 schools. It’s perfect for those who:

  • Want resources to help streamline every aspect of their work
  • Like ongoing accountability and support for changing habits slowly over time
  • Prefer to work systematically, tackling one area each month before moving on to the next thing
  • Want an in-depth exploration of each topic with lots of ideas and printables provided
  • Want a complete, holistic, and comprehensive approach to productivity and work/life balance

Check out theyearlong blueprint to see what's covered.

If you join Fast Track first and decide to upgrade, you'll be able to join the Full Year program in the summer at a steeply reduced rate.

Our recommendation is to pick the program that best fits your needs right now:

If you want a quick 6 week program to help you save time during the school year, join Fast Track.

If you want a program that starts in summer and walks you step by step through the entire school year, join Full Year.

No, you never lose access to the materials you paid for and can login to the member’s site at any time. If you would like the updated version of the materials, that’s available for purchase through the Graduate Program.
