Launching “TeacherBoss”, The Newsletter You Didn’t Know You Needed
Hey, Guys! I’ve decided to start a newsletter!
I sometimes struggle to share all of my content in long, detailed posts because what I love most is short and sweet. I started realizing that the content that’s most helpful to me is typically quick and to the point. I have a classroom full of students at school and two very loud, busy children at home, so I don’t have any time to waste!
I decided to launch the newsletter on my blog first and then transition to a weekly newsletter by email. I wanted to kick things off with a February recap newsletter, and since it’s March 10th, you can probably guess that the current scoreboard is Busy/Loud Life- 1, Me- 0. But that changes now!
My newsletter will always have 4 components.
- A bright idea or tip to help you save time or hack life
- An empowering thought to remind you that you’re a boss
- A product that’s helped me in the classroom and might help you
- A freebie from me to you, because gifts are my love language
I tried to think of 4 quick things that I want/need on a weekly basis. Subscribe at the bottom of this post so that you are ready for my newsletter launch for the month of March and my weekly newsletters starting in April. I would love to know what you think!
….without further ado, check out The TeacherBoss Newsletter for February!
*ONE* Bright Idea!
Teach kindness to your students through having them notice the little things. To celebrate Valentine’s Day I had a two week kick-off that had a tremendous effect on my class! On Monday, I had my students chose a random student’s name and keep it secret. They noticed things that student did throughout the week and on Friday wrote them a compliment card (I picked up cards from the Target Dollar Spot). My students cherished these and wanted to keep the tradition going. Some of them would even jot down notes all week long of amazing things their secret buddy was doing!
*TWO* Be Empowered.
“Education is the most powerful weapon with which you can use to change the world.”
If education is the weapon, then we are the soliders on the front line. Keep your head up, we have more power than we’re given credit for.
*THREE* In the Spotlight.
Are you read aloud ready? This month’s spotlight is on my “Barack” book companion. There really is no better read aloud for a Black History Month/President’s Day Mash Up! Read more about my read aloud ready sets here and download the “Barack” book companion by clicking here.
*FOUR* This one’s on me.
This month’s freebie is my all-time favorite product, my Black History Profile Cards. You can read more about how I used them in my classroom here. I created these cards as a fix to the double problem that <one> African-Americans weren’t anywhere in my curriculum and <two> I didn’t have time in pacing to add in extra lessons. I was going to offer these cards as a February-Only freebie, but seeing how they have impacted classrooms all over the country, I decided that I have to keep them up. Download the cards for yourself by subscribing to my newsletter and gaining access to my Freebie Library.
Talk to you soon,
