EduMagic Planner

So, we know that there are student planners and teacher planners, but not an education major planner. Hannah Sansom and I have been working hard to create this for you! We brought together the worlds of teaching and being a student into one easy to use planner. We combined organization and time management through monthly, weekly, and daily calendars. Along with resources to guide you through your teaching journey, we also included areas for goal setting and reflection.

This planner brings together the world of being a college student and an aspiring educator into one.
