A helping hand for the busy English teacher
If you are a teacher, you likely spend hours a week searching for materials to make your lessons engaging. Those hours can really add up. Thousands of websites out there offer excellent teaching resources for middle and high school English teachers but you also have to weed through a lot of repetition and junk. That is time wasted in an already packed schedule.
This site picks through the best of what's out there and houses tons of resources and lessons, all FREE. We also create materials designed to engage students and provide efficiency for teachers. In addition, we send The Monday Morning Connection Newsletter which delivers relevant and time-saving lessons and rresources for middle and high school English teachers.
The truly unique aspect of this organization is the Premium Membership. If you find you just never have enough hours in the day, then Premium Membership is for you. As former high school English teachers, our main goals are to provide relevant and practical material while saving you time.
Premium Membership provides teachers with an online personal assistant to do all those things that suck the time away from teaching. Need a PowerPoint made? Simply send in a request. Want to find some new materials for a novel you are teaching? Just let us know.
Don't spend time searching for materials--not even on this site--just tell us your needs.
We also provide workshops, ongoing professional development, personalized assistance and student programs that engage our most reluctant learners. Click here to read more about the programs we offer.
Each summer we host an annual GET INSPIRED SUMMER SYMPOSIUM. A week of workshops, presentations, and collaboration at little cost to teachers. This year our theme is EMPOWER 500. This truly unique event will be unlike any other professional development you have attended. We will poll our 500 teachers first, then work to find what they need/want. We also support them AFTER the conference. You don't want to miss these amazing opportunities.
The English Teacher's Friend is here to help so you can get back to what's important--teaching.
Sign up to receive The Monday Morning Connection, our weekly newsletter providing lessons, resources, and topics of interest for secondary English teachers.
