Click below to hear about auditing lesson plans and more:

What can you do now with a little bit of effort that will serve “future you” 5 times over? Summer is almost here, and this month’s episodes are dedicated to sharing specific and simple strategies you can do now so you can end your year strong and go into next year rested and ready to go. 

Like most teachers this time of year, you may be feeling totally exhausted, but if you can channel the little bit of energy you have left into completing the challenge I’m giving you today, it will have a huge impact on saving you time and energy next year.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about how and why auditing lesson plans for next school year is so important, even if you don’t know what you’ll be teaching. If you missed episode 20 where I encourage you to take time to reflect on your procedures from this past school year, go back and listen to Ending the Year Strong Part 1. 

Stay tuned for the next episode in this series where I’ll share another challenge with you for ending the year strong that will be more hands-on and less reflective…I think you’ll really enjoy it.
