Teachers from across the United States (and beyond!) are sharing their stories about the club's strategies on social media.

Still not sure if 40 Hour Fast Track is right for you?

Here are the 4 most common questions teachers ask us when deciding whether to join the club:

Over 31,000 K-12 teachers have successfully used the club to help them conquer overwhelm and reduce their work hours.

Only 2.5% of teachers who join later request a refund.

That’s because the club is about your mindset and your habits, not what or where you teach. You can take what you learn through the club and apply it in ANY job for as many years as you’re in the classroom.

The best way to find out if the club will work for YOU is to jump in with both feet and give it a shot. Immerse yourself in the community and try out some of the strategies.

Join us and check out the resources. You’ll be able to tell right away if Fast Track is a good fit. If it’s not, there’s nothing to lose. Send me an email by January 15th and I’ll refund your entire payment.

and the people
who just want to work smarter

Nope. 40 is the number of contractual hours many educators are required to work. The number 40 is designed to take you aback and get you thinking:

Wait, 40? How could that be possible when teaching consumes every waking minute of my time?

The goal of the club is to help you find a more sustainable way to do this teaching thing well & make a big impact for kids.

We conquer overwhelm right away so that you’ll have the energy and mental bandwidth to follow through on systems to get organized, streamline routines, give kids ownership of the classroom, and be truly intentional about how you use your instructional, contractual, and personal time.

THAT’S the real benefit of the club, and it’s the process which makes it possible to work fewer hours.

For the
super busy folks

Fast Track includes only the most impactful strategies from the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek program. You’re getting just the BEST stuff in the most condensed format possible.

Each week, we'll give you a plan for simplifying ONE aspect of your teaching.

You can use as many or as few strategies as you’d like—just a few small tweaks to your mindset and daily routines in that one area will start moving the needle, so you’ll feel relief from overwhelm immediately.

Jump in and out of the resources whenever it’s convenient for you. Some teachers read over them with a cup of coffee on Saturday mornings, others listen to the audio version during their Monday morning commutes.

There’s no pressure to “do it all.” Use only the ideas and printables that seem most relevant to your teaching context.

You can always come back to anything you skipped later, as you’ll keep your access to all these materials for the rest of your teaching career (at no extra cost!)

The strategies you learn are the same in both programs–there is nothing in Fast Track that you won’t also find in the Full Course.

Only the format and the depth of the materials are different. Fast Track begins in January and is a condensed version of the Full Course.

Instead of covering every topic, it includes just the most essential ones for mid-school-year. And, instead of including all the strategies for the most essential topics, it includes just the ones past participants have found MOST impactful.

Fast Track does not include anything for back-to-school, end-of-year close out, or any other seasonal materials. It’s just the resources you need to trim 3, 5, or 10+ hours off your workweek right away in January.

You’ll have the option at the end of the 6 week Fast Track program to purchase the rest of the materials, and your total cost will actually be cheaper.

More time for gardening or painting?
That’s the real question!

You WILL get results.

I'm Angela, and I founded the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club back in 2015.

I've spent 11 years as a classroom teacher and 11 more as an instructional coach and educational consultant. I designed this program based on what worked for me as a teacher, and spent years refining the strategies based on what I've observed through supporting club members. 

Together, we are proving that you CAN be a great teacher without sacrificing everything for the job. There IS a more sustainable approach to this work, so you can keep doing what you love, without burning out.

When you join the 40 Hour Fast Track program this January, I personally guarantee that you will feel less overwhelmed and more organized, AND you’ll begin trimming 3, 5, or even 10+ hours off your workweek right away. 

If not, send us an email by January 15th, and we will refund your entire payment. You have nothing to lose.
