Today my guest on Simply Teach is Angela Watson! Angela is a former teacher and current Instructional Coach and Educational Consultant for teachers all over the US. She is a blogger, an author, a podcaster! Her podcast is actually the first teacher podcast I ever listened to as I was dreaming up Simply Teach!
40 Hour Teacher Workweek
Angela began teaching in the late 90’s and has gathered a wealth of knowledge and experience she uses to help support other teachers. I wanted to have her on the podcast so we could talk all about returning to school after Christmas Break. As teachers, we know that the break is SO good for us and our students. But it can also mean relearning routines, expectations, and transitions.
We spend the first part of the show talking about how to practice and implement routines at the return of a new semester. Angela shares a really valuable reminder that we all need to give ourselves some grace those first few days back!
Angela and I also talk about routines that we, as teachers, can implement as we begin a new semester. I hope that some of you have goals for 2019 around spending less time at school! From a self-care perspective, we know how important it is to take care of ourselves.
Angela tells us all about her 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. A 52 week course designed to help teachers reduce the amount of time they are spending in their classroom. Can we get an “AMEN!” for that?!? She shares with us the average amount of time teachers shave off of their workweek after completing the course.
We talk all about it in the show but if you want to learn more or sign up, you can head to her website to learn more! This episode is airing on January 1, 2019 (HAPPY NEW YEAR!). And the doors to this cohort close on January 10, 2019. If you are listening AFTER that, be sure to sign up for the wait list. She even sends out some goodies to help you right now!
If you do decide to sign up, would you mind mentioning that you heard it on Simply Teach?
I’d love for you to listen HERE!! I would also love it if you shared it with a teacher friend by sending it to them, posting it on your social media accounts, or saving it to Pinterest!
