A Modern Teacher: Personal Planner {review & giveaway}


Planners are hugely popular right now. And, everybody either has one or has been shopping for the perfect match to their life. I have bought a few myself and even made my own. But, NONE of them compare to the quality of the planners of A Modern Teacher.

Last year, I had the opportunity to meet and hang out with April when some of my blogging teacher friends met up in San Antonio. She is a teacher turned super mom. Her goal is to help teachers and understands what a teacher and a busy girl needs!


She has a line of personal planners and lesson planners. She sent me the black and white polka dot personal planner and I fell in ♥love♥ at first sight! Seriously!


This functional and fabulous personal planner is here to bridge your two passions (home and school) so you can do the important work: teach! From one teacher to another, I hope you can use this resource to organize and plan better. {April’s store description}

This planner is perfect for the teacher who does online lesson planning, types their lessons, team plans, or uses a software program. Why? Because this planner is meant to provide you with an overview of what you will be doing in your classroom while keeping track of your personal life. {April’s store description}
