Get Ready for Back to School


Are you getting your classroom ready but don't know where to begin?

I have been getting a lot of emails from teachers who are interested in taking the Classroom Setup Bootcamp but are either feeling pressed for time or can't fit it into their budget.

To help you out, I've pulled together a few resources that I created in the past and put them into one neat little course package for easy access. Watch the promo video above for a quick intro. The promo video is a 2 minute clip from the main lecture in this course.

"Get Ready for Back to School"
50 min video lecture
This presentation was originally part of the 2016 Summer Summit. In this video I talk about the 3 main domains you need to work on when getting ready for back to school:

  • preparing your environment (with bonus suggestions for organizing your supplies and setting up your shelves)
  • record keeping/paperwork
  • working with adults.

I end with a 5 day action plan for your teacher preparation week.

Included is a full transcript of the lecture that you can print out and use as a checklist.

**I do not recommend this course if you registered for the 2016 Summer Summit Teacher Track or the Classroom Setup Bootcamp. If you did, you already have access to this information.**

Bonus Resources

I have shared these resources in the past on my blog or in my newsletter. They are gathered here for you convenience. Some of these can now only be found here inside this course. See the list below.

Certificate of Attendance
For completing this course, you can receive a certificate of attendance for one hour to use towards your professional development requirements. You will be responsible for getting approval from your local licensing agency. Read more about certificates here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?
This course is best suited for Montessori teachers at the primary (ages 3-6) level.

How long do I have access to the course?
You have access for one year from the date of registration. During that time you may re-watch the videos as often as you wish.
What is the difference between the School registration and the Individual registration?
A school registration allows multiple attendees from one school to participate and be eligible for certificates of attendance. An individual registration allows one person to receive a certificate.
How does the school registration work?
Once you register as a school, you will be sent additional unique registration links (We have to do this part manually, so please allow 48 hours for delivery). You will pass these links on to the staff members who will be participating from your school. They will need to log in and register via their unique link at no additional charge. They can then login and view the presentation as many times as desired at their convenience.
