Hi! I’m Jeanne. I’m a middle school ELA teacher from Illinois and the founder of Teacher Off Duty--a blog dedicated to helping teachers save time, teach better, and live happier. Helping new teachers is my all-time favorite jam. With 4 years of teaching under my belt, 3 years mentoring as a cooperating teacher, 2 and a half as Department Chair, and a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction, I’ve got some really great experience with teaching and mentoring. I’m also not so far away from my first year that I can’t remember what it feels like to be just starting off.

In my 2nd year teaching, I won an Outstanding Beginning Teaching Award and I didn't feel special enough for it at all. In fact, I knew then what I know now: I owed the early success largely to the strategic preparation I did before them. And now, I want to help you do the same.


 

"After accepting my teaching position, my first question to myself was WHERE DO I START?! I started researching and reading blogs geared towards first-year teachers lost like I was! I’m so thankful I stumbled upon Teacher Off Duty's AMAZING blog! She gives some tremendously helpful advice on how to PRIORITIZE and PLAN to help eliminate as much chaos as possible your first year!"

Frequently Asked Questions


How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What makes this different than other resources available online?
There is a TON of free resources online for teachers. The problem? That there is a ton of free resources online for teachers. And not all of it is good. Some of it is conflicting. And most times it takes hours and hours just to find the thing you were looking for in the first place, if you can find it at all. You don't have that kind of time this summer. This summer and this year, you’re going to need gallons of a few things: time, organization, calm, and courage. This course is here for you for all of that. That jungle of online resources? Not so much.
