The Best Build Your Own Teacher Planner

Are you overwhelmed with all the teacher planner options? Are you looking for the perfect planner but can’t find it? Maybe you need some of its contents but not all of them, and you don’t want to pay for what you won’t use.

Look no further! Now you can build your own teacher binder and pay for only what you want!  That’s right!!!  Build Your Own Binder!  It’s not just any binder, it’s the new and improved Teacher Binder that you can build yourself!  I am so excited about this and think that you will be too!

The Best Teacher Planner – Core Teaching Binder

Start with the Core Binder. The Core Edition contains core contents to help you be successful as a teacher. It doesn’t have the fluff, just the essentials.

The Core Binder is updated yearly for FREE! It includes two different calendar layouts: a one-page and a two-page option. It also consists of A Peek at the Week and A Peek at the Year planning pages.

In addition, there is an entire year’s worth of pre-dated lesson plan pages and they are so versatile they will meet everyone’s needs! If you go to school year round or teach summer school, your dates are covered!

You can choose to have subjects on top or side. Premade pages are available for 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 subjects. All columns and rows can be added to, deleted, or resized! If these don’t work, you can delete the tables, start from scratch, and make your own!
