Occasionally I mention teacher resources and tools that I use and/or recommend. I thought it would be helpful to create a teacher resources page where you can come for all of your teaching needs.
Whether you’re a classroom teacher, specialist teacher, teacherpreneur, homeschooler or parent you’re sure to find some useful tools and resources to help make your life that little bit easier.
As I find more resources and tools that I like and use, I’ll add them here for easy reference. I recommend you bookmark this page for your convenience and reference.

There are so many wonderful places where you can get all of your teacher resources, there is no point re-inventing the wheel. These are some of my go-to places for different teacher resources.
I have written many articles about all of the different planners that I have trialed over the years. These are the ones that I find work the best for me.
Erin Condren life planner – Definitely my fave planner out there. They also have the teacher planner which includes lots of different sections to help you stay organized.
Notemaker – Beautiful notebooks and journals to suit your many needs. Also if you subscribe to Notemaker you get 10% off your first order.
Top Notch Teaching resource store – This is where you will find all of the downloadable teaching resources that I create and sell.
Educents – If you want some excellent bargains, then this is the place for you.
Amazon – There are so many goodies on Amazon where you can not only purchase professional books and children’s books but also lots of bits and bobs to help you get organized too.
Booktopia – This is a fabulous resource for teachers in Australia and New Zealand. They have a great range of books, and at affordable prices.
If you’ve ever thought about creating your own blog or selling some of your teaching products, then these links will help you get started.
Through much trial and error, I have found that these are the teacherpreneur tools that make my life much easier. They help me to get organized and create beautiful looking products and graphics.
If you wear many hats, as a teacher, mum (mom) or entrepreneur then you need a good system to help you stay organized.
As much as I love my Erin Condren Planner it doesn’t fit in with all of the different things that I do.
The Mama CEO Planner – my new secret weapon. This is more than just a paper planner, it is your whole planning system. This has not only helped me stay organized and on top of everything going on in my life, but it has also helped me take my business to the next level.
The 2017 Mama CEO Planner System is a paper planner created to meet the needs of Mama CEOs and 3 separate e-courses to help you plan successfully. Some of the features include:
- Paper planner: addresses the unique planning needs of mum business owners.
- Your next 90 days virtual workshop: includes a workbook and videos to take you through a customized strategy for your business.
- My tiny empire: post-it note planning course for formulating your next big project.

- Plan like a mother: 4 part planning course to help you get the most out of your planner.
- Weekly workflow tutorial: how to craft your week to focus on the most important things in your business and life.
Building your website
HostGator – When you set up your very first website you will need a provider to host it for you. I have only ever used HostGator and have never had any problems.
Crazy Domains – If you want to use your own website name you will need to buy the domain name.
Convertkit – If you want to stay in touch with your readers, then you’ll need an email service provider to make it easier for you to send your emails. I love how easy Convertkit is to use, especially if you’re not that tech savvy (like me).
Pinning Perfect by Blog Clarity – I love spending time on Pinterest, but it can be a way to distract myself for hours!. I didn’t really know how to use it best to grow my website, but I completed the Pinterest course by Blog Clarity. I would have to say it is one of the best courses I’ve ever done. So practical and many fantastic tips about how to use Pinterest. Even if you don’t want to use it to promote a business, I still think this course is pretty fabulous in teaching you how to use Pinterest.
Tailwind – I also like to be organized and schedule most of my social media. I use Tailwind to schedule on Pinterest.
Post Planner – I also schedule many of my posts for Facebook, and I find Post Planner easy to use. It also provides you with some engaging content too.
