Does this sound familiar?
The summer before my first year teaching was filled with terror and excitement like I had never known.
I had never wanted to rock something more but felt less ready.
I wanted to prepare, but didn’t know how. Curriculum was nowhere to be found. The other teachers in my building were M.I.A. Everything I from my prep program felt nebulous and confusing.
And any time I told someone I was about to start my first year, they always told me details how horrific their first year was.
Fast forward to the end of the year.
At an end-of-the-party after my first year teaching, two of my admin separately told me that they never would have thought I was a first year teacher. My jaw dropped. Really???
My second year teaching, I won an Outstanding Beginning Teacher Award and was named Department Chair in my school.
Want to know how that all happened?
Because of everything I prepared before the start of the year.
And that's good news for you.
Because it means there's a fix for all the fears swirling in your head right now,
AND with the right tools, you may not just survive this year...but rock it.
That's where this course comes in.
The Ultimate New Teacher Workshop is a step-by-step course on how to prepare like a veteran teacher for your first day, from the ground-up. No unnecessary frills. No time-wasting. And no crummy lesson plans, either.
It's how you can skip hundreds of hours searching for help, reinventing the wheel, and draining yourself by panicking to figure out how to do this thing.
Together, we'll cut out the stuff that's not going to make a difference and focus on the essentials, walking step-by-step on how to do it. The stuff that's going to make you feel prepared, and the stuff that's going to help you make a difference in your students' lives.
You'll receive a concrete break-down on how to get all the things buzzing around your head done before the start of the year--curriculum planning, documentation, classroom set-up, parent contact, time management--and an exclusive group of fellow new teachers to encourage you along the way.
After completing this course, you’ll feel more confident, calm and prepared for an incredible year--all in 4 weeks.

"All summer I’ve been thinking that I need to do things to get prepared for the school year but I wasn’t exactly sure what. I am SOOOOO thankful to have found this that tells me EXACTLY what to do. It has made me feel so much better about the upcoming school year and has made it a lot less scary."
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 6 years of teaching under my belt, including experiences mentoring as a cooperating teacher, serving 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.

What is the Course + Summer Mastermind Option?
A New Teacher Mastermind is a small group of go-getting new teachers that meet on a regular basis. The purpose is to help you gain clarity, direction, and confidence in preparing for your classroom through brainstorming, goal-setting, decision-making, and support. It's the best way for you to cut the learning curve, gain personalized support, and focus on what matters most: making the difference that only you can in your students’ lives.
Our Summer New Teacher Masterminds have 6-10 members plus myself as a facilitator and meet every other week for 90 minutes. During each session, you'll take turns in the “hot seat” for 15-20 minutes to share a specific goal or problem you're facing, and the rest of the group brainstorms solutions, shares resources, and helps create a goal and a plan.
Our Summer-Fall Session meets on Mondays from 5:00-6:30pm Central time on the following dates:
The total May price is $240 for a 3-month commitment, though you'll pay just the cost of this course upfront while we make sure you're a good fit. After you're accepted, you'll complete 2 more monthly payments of $80.
Interested? Awesome! Just choose “Course + Mastermind” below and I’ll send you an application. Act soon to lock in the early bird price -- it goes up to $270 on July 1st!
