Are you panicking about what school is going to look like?

You might be thinking...

  • "I'm struggling with not knowing what my district will be doing when I return to school."
  • "I'm scared to think about how to even start the year."
  • "I have no clue what I am preparing for."
  • "I don't know how I'll connect with my students."
  • "I could really use some practical advice about how to start the year online and in hybrid situations."

In March of 2020, we found ourselves in a position that has never happened in the history of teaching; we CLOSED down schools. Teachers were asked to pivot their teaching without warning. In a matter of days, teachers had to learn how to navigate the virtual world, adjust expectations, and make new plans to teach students online. It is no surprise that teachers rose to the occasion and did whatever it took to make it work. That speaks to the power you have as a teacher.

But the truth is...

...it was stressful and hard.

Do not repeat that again! Although, the start of this school year is unlike any other. You don't have to scramble the way you did last Spring!

Let me help you with this live virtual workshop!

Don't wait until your district has a plan before you take action!

You can plan and feel prepared for this school year NOW.

During this live class, you'll learn... 

how to use my Classroom Connection Model™ to plan for the start of school so that you can ease the paralyzing feeling of not knowing how to start.

This is the solution to navigate any back to school scenario like a pro, whether you're a new teacher or have been teaching for years!

The Classroom Connection Model™ will help with FIVE classroom essentials.

This isn't more busy work! You will see how these five classroom essentials work together and can be easily integrated into what you already do to create a dynamic classroom - whether virtual or in-school! You might already be doing some of this but what I share is a system to make it all work cohesively.

Walk Away with...

  • Back to School Virtual Sample Schedules (full-day and half-day)
  • Routines and Procedure Phasing-In Document
  • First Day of School Suggestions, Ideas and Tips

About Laura

Hello, hello! I'm so excited you are here. If we haven't met before, I'm Laura of A Grace-Filled Classroom. I've been an elementary teacher since 2001 (wow...I feel old!) I have a passion for helping 2nd and 3rd grade teachers build strong classroom communities where students are engaged in rigorous learning and their social-emotional needs are met - all while being empowered with a growth mindset.

Why am I doing this? I posted a picture of the Target school section a few weeks back, and I got so many responses from teachers that shared their hesitation to go back to school! The biggest reason? Not having a school plan! Don't let not having a school plan stop you from getting ready for school. You don't want to repeat March of 2020! Don't wait to scramble around at the last minute.

I am an Instructional Coach for my school district and have been helping and coaching teachers for the last 6 years. Let me help you plan for your first week of school and take away the stress that is stemming from the messiness of this school year.
