Teacher Life Balance Academy

Time Management Strategies for Classroom Teachers




Hey there teacher! Do you struggle to fit it all in? Is work-life balance something that only other teachers can achieve?

You have so many amazing activities you want to implement with your students, your family, and yourself.

Implementing balanced routines is the biggest key to allowing you to do more.

You're excited to find teacher time management tips, but you have so many questions!

  • What do I do if I have a family that refuses to help out at home?
  • How do I fit it all in?
  • Should I get another new planner?
  • How do I get others to quit interrupting my planning period?
  • When is the best time to plan my schedule?
  • What if I prefer an electronic planner?
  • How do I get motivated to do anything when arrive home from school?

I know I have wondered the same myself in the past! But I have learned some great tips and tricks to creating systems which are effective! Even better? They are SAVING YOU TIME to get your work done at work - and have time leftover!  

This is an opportunity for you to learn from my repeated trial and errors!

You're ready to teach more with less time spent trying to figure out what's coming next.

You're ready to have real conversations with friends after contract hours, instead of only having enough time to "like" their social media posts.

You're ready to love teaching again and go home feeling energized instead of deflated - and continue that feeling when you get home to work towards your own personal life goals.

Teacher Life Balance Academy is the full program that shows you how to create and implement time management strategies which will help you be less stressed and find more work/life balance.

I'll show you how to do more at school and less at home - while leaving school at your contract time each day.  

So you can create more balance, a sense of freedom, and still find time to fit it all in.

"Thank you for all you do to pour into us teachers out here.  

A couple years ago I took your Teacher Balance Life Academy… during it I joined up with a teacher in the Midwest as an accountability partner. We haven’t met in person yet, but we want to. We are still friends. Thank you for being the facilitator of that! The class has been very helpful… and when I get disorganized, I just go back to what we learned…and start over." ~Hilary

After taking Teacher Life Balance Academy you’ll have:

All the information you need to plan out your own personalized balanced life plan.

The confidence in knowing you can control your day and how you feel at the end of it.

A clear sense of direction when things get a little crazy (as they always do).

Here's what you'll learn in Teacher Life Balance Academy

I will take you from stress to more effectiveness after implementing the 4 learning modules in just 4 weeks.


  • Lesson 1 covers the evolution of the teacher from different time periods. You will get a chance to learn how the role of the teacher in the community has changed, what hasn't, and how you should be changing how you perceive yourself as a professional educator.
  • Lesson 2 talks about teacher mental health. Your personal days off should not be used to recover from your life - they should be used for joy. Most educators are barely keeping up. This lesson gives you permission to daydream, even if just for a bit, to imagine what your personal days could be used for if you used them in your best interest.
  • Lesson 3 is all about control. We hate when we lose control, right? But do you honestly feel like you are in control of your life and your career most days? Government mandates, impossible administrators, bickering colleagues and parents, uncooperative significant others at home - they can really crimp your feeling in control style. This lesson will put some control issues in perspective and even includes a fun quiz!


  • Knowing that all teachers have very different looking life-balance goals
  • Realizing that balance includes visiting 8 different life categories regularly - and that you are probably already doing many of those things already
  • You will get to take the Balance Wheel Assessment - and compare it to what you would like it to be in the future
  • Learn what the 80 is Great Rule is all about
  • Create your own "best balance" to-do list for the next 8 weeks
  • See exactly how to break down those big balance goals into bite-size chunks to be completed over the next 2 months and how to get them added to your calendar in a logical way, using a color-coded key.
  • If you haven't done it yet: Make sure to download the TLBA Workbook with all the slides and handouts from the training. Print, hole-punch, and add to a 3-ring binder for reviewing as much as you like!


  • Learn the basics of daily scheduling
  • How-to tutorials to print your very own custom to-do planners - and how to make sure you don't pay for color ink printing
  • When the best time to plan is during the day and how often you should be doing it
  • Daily Do's and Don'ts for daily planning
  • Learn a super basic trick for getting the task done even when you are out of motivation
  • See some fun tech tools that will help you regain control of your online time wasters and bring you back into the real world more often


  • Your next steps after you have finished the course.
  • A certificate of hours for your records.
  • Troubleshooting FAQs to help you if you get stuck.

Hi there! I am Charity!


I received my undergrad degree in Early Childhood Education from Bowling Green State University in Ohio in 2003. When I couldn't secure a job in my hometown, I moved 2,000 miles from Ohio to Southwest Florida!

There, I finally snagged a classroom and was elated!

While in Florida (I have since moved back to Ohio to be closer to family), I added a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as my gifted certification to my curriculum vitae.

I have been involved in school committees, been a grade level chair, spoken at local, state, and national conferences, been featured in teacher magazines, and have directly worked with companies such as Pinterest, eBay, ASCD, WeAreTeachers, NEA, and more.

All - while being a single parent with no assistance from friends or famly. In fact, I didn't know a single soul when I moved to Florida! Yet, found a way to put in my contract hours successfully while still maintaining a household and my sanity.

It all started from a simple planning and time management system I began that worked for me and built on from there. Are you ready to build your system too? Let's go!

This course works if you do, but it does not guarantee that you will have complete life bliss in 4 weeks. Even though I have represented this course in the most honest and truthful way possible, and the process that I teach in this course has worked for me, your results may vary depending on a number of factors including your individual life challenges, dedication, skills, ability, and determination, etc. Because these factors vary according to each individual, I cannot and do not guarantee your success.

I do my best to provide you with quality information and guidance within reason, but ultimately it is up to you to achieve the results you desire.
