Nice to meet you! I’m an organization-loving, tech-savvy teacher and have been creating my own custom planners for years.
After the hundredth person asked me if I could make them their own plan book, I knew for sure that teachers would love to be able to design their own custom planner if only they didn’t have to have tons of time, energy and tech knowledge to do so.
I enlisted my animator husband, Tim, and my tech-genius sister, Erika, to help me and we spent 2 years creating, testing and perfecting the Nurtured Potential Planner. We are now so excited to share it with you!
(and our thousands of happy customers are chiming in, too!)
Will this work for teaching remotely?
Absolutely! You can switch back and forth between using your planner printed or digital. Thus, you'll have the flexibility to switch to or from digital at a moment's notice if you need to pivot between in-person and distance learning.
Share your digital planner (just like you'd share a Google Doc) with admins, your principal, or other teachers while teaching remotely. Allow editing or view-only.
You can even share your digital planner as "view-only" with your students' families if desired!
I'm not super tech-savvy. Will I be able to use this planner?
We make this planner as easy as possible to use, and designed everything with less-techy teachers in mind.
Comprehensive, organized directions are provided in 2 different versions:
As long as you can use a computer, check email, and surf the web, we are confident you can successfully use the Nurtured Potential Planner Creator.
What if I have an unusual schedule?
We have teachers who are specialists, teachers with odd preps, teachers who teach year-round school, teachers with varying international school years and more.
There's so much flexibility in choosing the exact layout you want to be created for you, having your planner made with your school-year start and end dates, and being able to write whatever you need into your master week so it is automatically in every week of your year.
Is this only a digital planner? Can I print it?
This planner provides you flexibility and the option to choose!
You can use the planner entirely online in digital format, or, once you've created your planner, you can print it out and never look at your computer again for the whole year.
We even have customers who use it in both print and digital format and who go back and forth as their needs change.
It's up to you!
We homeschool. Will this work?
Absolutely! This planner is created based on your desires and daily schedule, and is excellent for multiple children or unconventional homeschool schedules.
The planner automatically populates your dates, holidays, and weekly master plans to save you tons of time. You don't have to be mom, homeschool teacher, and data-entry secretary! Oh my, is that a game-changer or what?!?
What do I need in order to create my planner?
All you need is a free Google account. If you have a Gmail email address, or if you send and receive work emails through the Gmail platform (even if your email doesn't end in gmail.com), you are all set.
If you don't have a Google account, you can create a free one in moments and start your planner right away.
Do I have to purchase fonts to make this look like your samples?
No way! We'd never leave you hanging like that! This planner comes with the fonts included AND embedded in the document.
There is absolutely NOTHING you need to do to make them work - no font purchase, no font install.
Just modern, trendy fonts from the beginning!
I'm not in the US. Does this planner work for international teachers?
We wouldn't forget about our international teachers! Choose your preferred date format (dd/mm or mm/dd) and can select your own start and end date for your planner so it can be made for any school year.
We also have a specific A4 layout option that you can choose in the set-up questionnaire to maximize your A4 paper space. No more "making do" with printing US letter-formatted planner pages on A4 paper!
Excellent for European, Australian and world-wide school schedules. As long as you teach Monday through Friday, the Nurtured Potential Planner is designed with international teachers in mind.
I'm considering DIYing my own planner. Why is this better?
SO many of our customers tell us they've been DIYing their own planner for years, but it never quite turns out as beautiful or functional as their vision.
We also hear from customers who always wished they could DIY their planner but didn't know where to start.
The common thread no matter which camp you're in? You'll love having all the benefits of a DIY custom planner without all the actual DIYing.
Save your valuable time, energy and money while still doing as much or as little extra customizing as you want (Disc binding? Storage pockets?).
Or... use it exactly as is and let everyone think you created an incredible custom planner from scratch! 😉 We promise we won’t tell.
How long does this planner take to set up?
We have found most teachers spend 30 minutes to 3 hours creating their planner, depending how tech-savvy they are and how much they want to customize.
After the initial set-up, the planner requires no weekly or monthly repetitive data entry and is completely ready for actual lesson planning.
Save countless hours over the course of the year by having everything done for you as your planner is created!
Who is this planner NOT for?
The Nurtured Potential Planner is designed to be extremely versatile and meet so many teacher needs.
That said, there are a few unique teaching situations that don't work with the planner quite yet. These include:
If you fall into these categories, we encourage you to check back on occasion as these features are on our future upgrade plans.
How do I bind my planner if I print it?
Our customers use a myriad of methods to bind their planners, but the most common -- and easiest -- is simply 3-hole-punching the paper and putting your planner in a cute binder.
You can also choose to disc bind (a very popular choice), to use any bookbinding machine you have in your school or district, or to take your planner to a print shop or office supply store to be wire-bound or coil-bound (also very common among our customers).
The planner is pre-designed to have a binding margin in the center of each 2-page spread. This means you have room to bind without cutting into your lesson plans.
🤷♀️ Why spend up to $60 on a planner you can only use for one year?
🤷♀️. Why try to get by with the cheapest planner out there -- only to discover the reason it's cheap and need to buy another planner?
(Less $ for teaching supplies and cute shoes... bummer!)
(and since you'll already have your planner, you
can buy incredible new shoes each year instead! Yay!)
