Show Notes:

I've been fielding a lot of great questions about the R.E.A.D.Y. for School Academy, and I want to ensure that you get the answers to your most burning questions so you can make an informed decision about whether or not the Academy is a good fit for you. 

Join me for this week's podcast where I'll answer the questions I get asked the most before people join:

  1. I'm feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Will the Academy be a good fit for me?

  2. Do you walk us through how to create a classroom management plan?
  3. I'm really nervous about developing relationships with parents. Do you cover this inside the Academy?

  4. I don't have a job yet and I don't know what grade I'll be teaching. Should I wait to enroll in the Academy?

  5. I am still a student teacher. Should I wait to enroll in the Academy until I graduate?
  6. Is the course geared strictly towards homeroom elementary teachers or is it easily adaptable for specialists like music or SPED?

  7. These resources look amazing, but how do I print them all?

  8. What if we need to start the year online or with Covid restrictions? Will you help us with that?

  9. What if I can't afford this program right now? (Listen to Episode #115 where we talk all about 5 Ways to Get the Academy for Free)!

I hope to see you inside our Facebook group and remember, just because you're a beginning elementary teacher, there's no need for you to struggle like one - even during Covid.
