Hey there teacher! Do you struggle to fit it all in? Is work-life balance something that only other teachers can achieve?
You're ready to teach more with less time spent trying to figure out what's coming next.
You're ready to have real conversations with friends after contract hours, instead of only having enough time to "like" their social media posts.
You're ready to love teaching again and go home feeling energized instead of deflated - and continue that feeling when you get home to work towards your own personal life goals.
"Thank you for all you do to pour into us teachers out here.
I took your Teacher Balance Life Academy… during it I joined up with a teacher in the Midwest as an accountability partner. We haven’t met in person yet, but we want to. We are still friends.
Thank you for being the facilitator of that! The class has been very helpful… and when I get disorganized, I just go back to what we learned…and start over." ~Hilary

WHAT DO I KNOW ABOUT TEACHING?
I received my undergrad degree in Early Childhood Education from Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 2003. When I couldn't secure a job in my hometown, I moved 2,000 miles from Ohio to Southwest Florida!
There, I finally snagged a classroom and was elated!
While in Florida (I have since moved back to Ohio to be closer to family), I added a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as my gifted certification to my curriculum vitae.
I have been involved in school committees, been a grade level chair, spoken at local, state, and national conferences, been featured in teacher magazines, and have directly worked with companies such as Pinterest, eBay, ASCD, WeAreTeachers, NEA, and more.
All - while being a single parent with no assistance from friends or famly. In fact, I didn't know a single soul when I moved to Florida! Yet, found a way to put in my contract hours successfully while still maintaining a household and my sanity.
It all started from a simple planning and time management system I began that worked for me and built on from there. Are you ready to build your system too? Let's go!

I offer a 3-Day refund policy. You may request a refund for up to 3 days after you begin the course.

+ WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE TIME RIGHT NOW? HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COURSE?
Forever and ever! The rest of your life. Work at your own pace. Teacher Life Balance Academy is meant to relieve stress, not cause it.
+ WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD IT?
Investing in yourself is so important for growing beyond where you are currently. This particular course will open for enrollment 1-2 times a year. If you are not able to swing it this time around, perhaps save up for the next enrollment period when funds are more available. Fun fact: you CAN claim the amount spent on this course on your taxes as a business deduction (professional development).
+ CAN YOU ISSUE CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS?
At the conclusion of the course, you will be given a downloadable certificate for the 2.5 hours of PD provided within the course. It will be up to you to find out whether that certificate is accepted. I will not be able to provide any other additional documentation.
This course works if you do, but it does not guarantee that you will have complete life bliss in 4 weeks. Even though I have represented this course in the most honest and truthful way possible, and the process that I teach in this course has worked for me, your results may vary depending on a number of factors including your individual life challenges, dedication, skills, ability, and determination, etc. Because these factors vary according to each individual, I cannot and do not guarantee your success.
However, if you make the time, put in the effort and commit to this course, I will support you in reaching your goals for the duration of the 4 weeks. You are responsible for the results you achieve. I do my best to provide you with quality information and guidance within reason, but ultimately it is up to you to achieve the results you desire.
