The Ultimate Weekly Planner is accessible from any device. So, if you don’t want to print your plans. You don’t have to. You can send your professional plans to resource specialists, teammates, administration and subs!!
One of my favorite things about using The Ultimate Weekly Planner is I can access my plans from anywhere. SO, if I’m sick at 4am and need to make sub plans to send into my school’s secretary – it’s no problem! I can pull up my plans for the day and know what I have prepped in my room. Sub-plans done!
If I’m not around a computer, no problem! I can look at my plans on my phone and tablet, too!
You can use Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers and Google Sheets to personalize, write and store your Ultimate Weekly Teacher Planner.
Once you’ve created the template that suits your needs, you can choose to print it and use it with paper and pencil if you want. Or, you can use the plan book system included with the resource to store your plans. AND you can REUSE and edit your plans over and over again!
✅ YOU HAVE SUPPORT
The Ultimate Weekly Teacher Planner comes with detailed step-by-step instructions. Not only does this help you with initial quick set-up, it guides you through all you need to know to personalize the planner and make it suit your needs.
You will also have access to extensive videos! The videos provide visual reinforcement and examples of all you can do to get away from the traditional boring boxes that work against you instead of with you!
The guide and videos walk you through everything you need to know. It won’t be long before you realize the benefits of The Ultimate Weekly Planner over those expensive online planners and PowerPoint based planner and binders.

Every part of The Ultimate Weekly Planner can be personalized.
