SUMMER CHALLENGE: Getting Your Year in Gear



Do you feel your head begin to spin when you think about planning for a new school year?

If so, then you're not alone! There's just so much to think about when getting ready for a new school year. Which means that it's easy to get overwhelmed and forget all the details, even when you've taught for years. To make matters worse, often all those overwhelming feelings compound and send teachers into a year-long game of playing "catch-up.

Well, guess what? NOT. THIS. YEAR. FRIEND.

Join Mary Beth from Brain Waves Instruction and Rachael from The Classroom Nook this summer for a FREE power planning session like no other! The "Getting Your Year in Gear" challenge is designed to help you tackle the tasks and activities that will set you up for some MAJOR success this upcoming school year. In this challenge we will be covering the following themes:
  • Solutions for classroom decor - everything from DIY projects to classroom themes, color schemes, and vibes - to help you create a classroom that is going to WOW your students (Does you classroom lack style? We've got you covered!)
  • Solutions to solve your biggest organizing and inventory challenges (Do you feel like you can never find what you need when you need it? Not this year!)
  • Solutions for planning ahead so that you can relax later (Let's prep it and forget it, friend!)
  • Solutions for creating an amazing classroom community that translates into an amazing year. (Finally - a class that feels like family!)

What's included in the challenge?

When you sign up for the FREE "Getting Your Year in Gear" Challenge, you'll have access to loads of resources, inspirational ideas, instant freebies, and even a community of other go-getter teachers, just like you!
These resources include:
  • 4 downloadable interactive guides loaded with links, ideas, tips, and more related to each theme within the course
  • Video tutorials to help you every step of the way!
  • Exclusive Freebies that will give you a head start with each challenge!

  • Access to our private Facebook group where we will share pictures, stories, and words of encouragement during the weeks of the challenge.
  • Two personal cheerleaders (Mary Beth & Rachael!) to cheer you on every step of the way!


We've been there. Teaching is tough enough without having to prep for a new school year. Even if you're heading into your 10th+ year of teaching, there's always that "Where do I begin?" thought that goes through your mind when you walk into that empty classroom before the school year begins.
We're here to help! This year, when it's back to school time, we want you to sit back with your feet up on the night before school starts knowing you're ready. BRING IT ON!
