Trisha Campbell

I love to have the flexibility of digital lessons. This will be a huge help and I won't have to make a ton of copies! I can get everything ready at home for the day.

Everything I need

I am looking forward to having this ready to go just in case this school year. Especially helpful since I will be teaching a new grade level with newer to the profession teaching partners.

Rebecca W.

I absolutely LOVE having a digital version of all of my ready to go sub plans! In a remote/hybrid world, this was exactly what was needed!
It is so great not having to worry about taking a day off anymore. I used to come in to work no matter how sick I was because it was more work to create sub plans than it was to just go in. Now that I have these ready to go sub plans I allow myself the time off to rest and recover. This was a life saver!
