What people say
AMANDA! I cannot thank you enough for the membership. I actually participated as a Research Fellow at Ball State in the National Writing Project, but you put it all together including assessments. Do you realize how much time you have saved me? I told my husband $250 a year is a steal for all you offer. Seriously.
Shifting into distance learning has been a breeze because I have everything I need. So, thank you so much for everything. I am so happy that I was able to learn a whole new method of teaching and having the tools from you made it possible!
I have so much more free time. During my planning periods, I keep thinking there is more that I should be doing, but I already have everything planned and ready. Instead of preparing more work for the students or trying to figure out how to fill up the entire period with content, I am spending a lot more time on professional development.
I have bought so many units and items on TPT over the years that just didn't provide me with the materials I needed to fully implement reader's and writer's workshop in my classroom. I was hesitant to join at first because I didn't want to spend the money and just have another file of stuff that I wasn't going to use. But, I decided to try it and OH my GOODNESS! The change is AMAZING!
Seeing how you design your units has helped me be comfortable with finding my teaching style and writing plans that are simple, manageable while still containing standards. I really enjoy your Facebook live videos where you talk about writing and other ELA related strategies. You have a down to earth delivery that I connect with. Thank you for being relevant and compassionate. Your support for new teachers is invaluable. Thank you!
I want to let you know how much this puts my mind at ease related to my planning for next year. As a Humanities teacher I often struggle to bring the ELA and Social Studies content and skills together.
The tensions and anxieties are so high right now. And Workshop Teacher Membership has alleviated a HUGE amount of stress in my life...I could cry
