If you are planning on joining this, you can list someone as a referral and they get a $25 Amazon gift card. The offer is good through today (January 9th), so if you know someone who has been through the program, put their name and email address on the form when you sign up. (If you don't know anyone, feel free to pm me for my name and email- I highly recommence this program and can answer questions you may have. It's saved me SO much time! My only regret is not finding it 15 years ago!)

Good luck, everyone!

Can you explain how this has been beneficial to you?

Her methods and techniques helped me to prioritize and to streamline how I was working. Part of it was a mindset shift, and part were the tools and resources she provided. I am more focused and get more done in the time i allot myself. I used to leave school at 5:15 or
later and now I feel comfortable and prepared to leave by 4:00. I love feeling better balanced.

Before I joined I read her book, Unshakeable. That may be all you need- it was a great start for me.

I personally was very turned off by the program in the first month or so. There is a attached Facebook group. My goal for the program was to let go of having the perfect room, perfect classroom etc. about 90 percent of the posts were of Pinterest worthy classrooms. Ridiculous amounts of money was being spent for color coordinated themes and stuff. It was a huge guilt trip for me you didnít live up. I probably should have continued but for my own sanity I just couldnít.

I had the exact opposite experience. The FB group has a lot of support for letting go. The guilt trip sounds self-induced because I do not have a pinterest worthy room, and I felt no pressure to have one from the group. The mantra is "done is better than perfect."

You don't have to participate in the FB group to do the program. Two teachers I know aren't doing FB at all and they're getting a lot out of it. I do the FB group sporadically.

I agree with Gromit. What I got from it was that we make too much work for ourselves doing things that donít benefit our instruction. I actually forgot about the FB page and skimmed through the monthly resources for things I could use. As a graduate you have access to all the resources forever. I plan on going back and reading what I skipped to cut even more work hours this year. I average at least 6 hours less school work each week. I even got home before dark today! ( My commute is 30-40 minutes on the way home.)

Pinterest Perfect???

I felt no pressure to have a Pinterest perfect classroom. I rarely went on the facebook page and focused on her weekly information.

I enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. The club helped me to streamline and focus on what was the most important. I've trimmed time off my day and do a better job while I'm with the kids.

Her tips on taming papers has helped me to be better organized and less stressed.

I loved it.

I'm going through it now and I love it. I started in July and got reimbursed by my PTO so it was free for me. I don't do Facebook or Pinterest so I can't speak to the FB page and the Pinterest pressure. I just loved that every week I learned helpful, practical tips through the lessons.
