It’s no secret that nearly every teacher HATES writing sub plans. So why did I start creating TONS of them?
Here’s the story behind why I started creating Ready To Go Sub Plans and Sub Binders:
In 2014, I had my first son, Parker. I decided to stay home with him while substitute teaching instead of teaching full-time. As a teacher, I knew sub-planning was a challenge. But when I saw the other side as a sub, I saw the critical need for sub plans that involved real learning and student engagement. Many times as a sub, there will be little to no plans. I realized that this was because often teachers were calling in sick and didn’t have the time to prepare good, quality sub plans.
Because the fact is… what other job do you have to spend more time calling in sick than going to work? There HAD to be a solution to this problem.
So I created Ready To Go Sub Plans and Sub Binders to provide something that was also EASY for teachers and provide real, engaging learning for students… and posted them online, hoping to just make a little bit of extra money since I was only working part-time after becoming a mom.
Little did I know that 7 years later, over 50,000 teachers would have purchased the sub plans and sub binders and said things like:
“This was a lifesaver last week when my daughter was sick and I had to be out. My sub LOVED the plans and even told my principal how great and easy to follow. It is a must for the classroom” -Mandy T.
“This entire bundle will be a valuable resource to educators! Each set of sub plans features thoughtfully crafted and creative materials that students will enjoy (and substitute teachers will be able to manage easily). I especially appreciate the clear directions and guidance for teachers/substitutes in preparing the materials and using them throughout the day. I definitely recommend this product!” -jlbushong48
“Absolutely the best! It had everything I was looking for and such a timesaver!” -Glenda E.
“I was nervous about the possibility of taking extended time off this year due to Covid, such as a week or 2 due to quarantine or illness. I knew I needed to have extended emergency sub plans put together just in case… but then I came across this! It saved me a lot of time because I didn’t need to find or put together activities. The lessons and worksheets are all copied and ready to go so I am ready for the craziness of the 20-21 school year. Now I will always have sub plans ready for unexpected time off.” -Tracy T.
It brings so much joy to me to see how something I’ve worked so hard on for the past 7 years has made such an impact on the work/life balance for teachers everywhere! Teachers who never took a day off, or who spent HOURS preparing sub plans no longer need to because of our Ready To Go Sub Plans and Sub Binders.
I love hearing the stories from teachers who have used our Ready To Go Sub Plans and Sub Binders! I have a couple of vlog posts from Pam and Sarah who share their experience using these sub-plans:
A few months ago, the Wife Teacher Mommy team updated all of the Ready to Go Sub Plans to add NEW options, a cleaned-up design (trends in the design world have changed in the past few years), and DIGITAL versions to help accommodate you. They turned out AMAZING!
