Make Your Meetings Productive and Enjoyable!

Click the image to get some cute note-taking pages!

Ok, I know what you're saying... Meetings? Enjoyable? Those two things do not usually go in the same sentence. But maybe they can if you have cute paper to write on! 

Flashback to this past week. It was Thursday and I had just gotten over having the flu (yuck!). We had a staff meeting that afternoon, but if I'm being honest, what I really wanted to be doing after school was going back to bed. Since I wasn't about to make myself a cup of coffee (You know you're not feeling well when you don't even want coffee!!), I made the next best thing... a printable for my Big Happy Planner! :)

At first I created it with Google Fonts... added some adorable teacher graphics from EduClips ...but then this weekend I discovered Brittney Murphy Designs and OMG am I obsessed with her fonts! 

I got to playing around and now you can have FREE, fun note-taking pages for your meetings too! Click the first image to grab it in my store! 
Here's a preview of the different styles: 

Happy note-taking!


  1. LOVE your note taking pages - they're adorable!

  2. These are awesome! I agree, taking notes on fancy paper is SOOOO much better than on plain :P

Hello, hello! I'm not sharing teaching tips today, but I am sharing a tip that I think will help you become a more productive teacher ;) Because, let's face it...we're all more productive when things look cute/pretty/insert another girly adjective here. I've even been known to take my personal laptop into school instead of using my work one. The reason being that I've customized SO MUCH on my personal laptop to help myself enjoy doing the part of my job that doesn't involve interacting with kids. It's silly, I know .. I'm just that person.

The tip I'm sharing for productivity today? How to make your computer screen look beautiful! It's easier than you think! And I promise that once you've customized, you'll feel like you can get down to business... and you might actually want to!

Customizing Color Themes in Powerpoint and Excel

I'm totally aware that there are many people who will already know to customize their color themes in Powerpoint and Excel, and I should probably be less excited to share that I just found out how to do this.... but I'm sharing anyway :)

So I ask... Did you know that you can customize your color themes? My first thought was - "You mean I don't have to look at those dull default colors that Powerpoint picks anymore???" And my second thought was .. "Woah, what a time saver!"


Alright teacher friends, it's about that time again! The end of the school year. Your brain is scrambling with so many thoughts...

First of all, how did this year fly by, yet again?!
Are my students ready?
How is it time for report cards already?? The fourth quarter JUST started!
Must plan the end of the year party...student gifts...parent volunteer year's welcome letter...

I could keep going but I think I'll stop because I can feel my stress-level rising just typing this.

Among these responsibilities also comes packing up for next school year. And this whole thing has me thinking. Every year I say, "Next year I'm going to be more organized." "Next year I'll have all of my intervention activities prepped in August." "Next year, next year, next year. Well next year comes (always faster than I thought it would) and with all of the other beginning of the year responsibilities, I never get it done. Come the following June, I&…
