    This ginormous ELA bundle will solve a lot of your problems. You'll never have to stay up late trolling for lesson plan ideas again. You'll just dive into this folder, choose one of the dozens of activities and projects inside, and then hit the hay.

    Imagine the delicious smells of your own literary food truck festival. Imagine students fighting over your most popular reading library titles. Expect newly engaged writers when you roll out your first ever ELA maker space and guide your students in launching their blogs.

    I'm a teaching veteran, founder of the popular Facebook group Creative High School English, and the podcaster behind the highly rated Spark Creativity Teacher Podcast. I e-mail more than seven thousand teachers every week with ideas to help them thrive in their creative classrooms.

    I know what it's like to stay up until midnight every day just trying to survive. That's why I designed the English Teachers' Life Preserver. To give you a few more hours in the day for yourself. Maybe you'll take a walk and recharge with some happy endorphins. Maybe you'll pour a glass of wine and watch Atypical. Maybe you'll play an extra game of Uno with your son.
