If you don’t like the road you’re walking,
start paving another one.Dolly Parton
The Path to Passionate Teaching guides you away from overwhelm and helps you pave a new road to one where your career and passion can collide to create magic.
I was a teacher haunted by the overwhelm and working 60 or more hours a week. Nothing I did seemed good enough. I felt like I was letting everyone down… my admin, colleagues, students, children, spouse, family, and friends. I didn’t have time for anything or anyone yet I seemed to be spinning my wheels in circles.
Something had to change. Throughout this website, you will read about my struggles and triumphs. How I was able to go from being haunted by overwhelm to only working 45 hours a week and STILL meeting all of my requirements. My to-do list had finally shrunk and I got to do the things I wanted to.
In Path to Passionate Teaching… I share with you all of my secrets! All you have to do is sign up for my bi-weekly newsletter and you will have my secrets delivered straight to your inbox for free.
What’s the catch?
There is always a catch, isn’t there. In this case, you have to do the work. You will have to pave your own path and decided what will work for you and what won’t. I will send you lots of ideas in baby steps but you are going to be the one taking the steps.
That’s the catch!

Tools for Building Your Path
Path to Passionate Teaching Binder
I designed this binder to specifically match all of the items I will be sending to you in our monthly emails. Please make sure you download these freebies as they will only be available for that month.
These are my favorite dividers; I have 2 sets in my binder. They are basically page protectors with tabs! They are big enough that when I use sheet protectors you can still see the tabs. LOVE! What binder would be fun to use without a great set of colored pens.
Now we are ready to get to work.
