"THere HAS to be A better way to teach reading & writing that doesn't leave me stressed, frustrated & overwhelmed at the end of the day?"
Each month the teachers in the club offer their feedback on what they want to focus on that is related to reading & writing workshop, balanced literacy, conferring, strategy groups, prioritizing, assessments, learning progressions, one of our self-study courses and so much more. You can join the club for 1 month or several months. You can come and go as you please. Once you know what the club is focusing on that month, you decide if that's the goal you want to accomplish right now that will make a lasting impact on ALL your students. If so, join the Unstoppable Literacy Teacher Club.

"The Interview Standout in Literacy course gave me the confidence I needed to tackle the anxiety I was facing due to interviewing for my first teaching job. I feel equipped to be successful at snagging a job in my dream district now. The course was informative and I was able to download numerous sources to review at a later date. Thank you so much!"
You are UNSTOPPABLE!
When I think of the word unstoppable, I think of a couple of things. I think of a person who perseveres against all odds. I think of persistence. I think of someone who still has hope and continues in the right positive mindset, regardless of what is falling apart all around them.
"Have I described the type of teacher YOU are or aspire to be?"
I also think of that 2010 movie that Denzel Washington and Chris Pine played in surrounding a train. They didn't stop; they weren't defeated! They thought positively even though the circumstances looked bad. They gave it all they had, and in the end, it paid off ... they SAVED THE DAY!
