5 Essential Things to Do Now to Prepare for Your First Classroom

Even if you can't set foot in the school and you don't know what grade you're teaching, I'll show you how to start getting books, supplies, and materials organized & how to make smart decisions about classroom design.


The Secret to a Crystal Clear
Classroom Management Plan that Works

Discover what impressed my principal so much when he visited my classroom towards the end of the school day (and how you can easily do this in your own room). 😊
Also, learn to manage disrespectful and difficult students effectively

The Exact Ingredients in that Secret Sauce that Master Teachers Have

Have you ever walked into a teacher's classroom and wondered what that "it" factor was that made it so special?
I'll tell you what it is and how you can create it in your own classroom
in the first week of school (whether you're teaching online or in the classroom)!

"Dr. Lori, William B. Yeats once wrote that 'Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.' I feel this quote exemplifies everything you are as a teacher and everything I hope to one day achieve in my teaching. Not only did you provide me with some great ideas but you also encouraged me create some innovative ideas of my own. Your encouraging words and motivation were what really stuck with me the most. You gave me that little nudge I needed in order to realize my full capabilities. You are a teacher I strive to be like and hopefully one day can exude half the creativity and motivation that you bring to teaching. "

A Note From the Instructor...

I've been where you are, and I know how hard it can be to figure all of this out on your own. I was in that same position more than 20 years ago when I signed my first teaching contract.

The good news is that you don't have to figure it all out by yourself. I've helped thousands of new teachers get ready for their first year, and I can save you hours of frustration and overwhelm by sharing with you what I wish someone had told me before my first year of teaching.
Let's get started!
