Want to know my biggest struggle as a Virginia teacher? Finding high-quality resources aligned to the SOLs. I used to spend 10+ hours every week searching for and creating SOL-aligned resources. It was exhausting and I became burned out from not having any time for myself. Can you relate? If so, there is a way to end this exhausting lesson planning cycle… the Virginia Teacher Club!

Teaching remotely does not have to be a daily struggle when you have access to a wide variety of digital teaching resources aligned to the SOLs. All you have to do is open the resource and share it with your students.

2. Access to up-to-date SOL-aligned resources

Has this ever happened to you…

You spend hours searching for the perfect resource to teach a specific SOL to your students. Finally, you find a resource on a site such as Teachers Pay Teachers that you think will work. You pay for the resource and download it only to discover that it is aligned to an outdated version of the SOL. This has happened to me countless times, and it is something that makes me want to bang my head against the wall!

With the Virginia Teacher Club, you never have to worry about this happening because we update all of the resources in our curriculum library to the most recent versions of the SOLs. Anytime the SOLs are revised, our resources are revised too. During crosswalk years, we provide access to resources aligned to BOTH the old and revised SOLs to ensure you have exactly what you need to teach.

3. Virginia Teacher Club resources are engaging

You may be wondering about the quality and rigor of the resources inside the Virginia Teacher Club. I have more than seven years of experience working for some of the largest curriculum companies in the world. These companies have trained me to create standards-aligned resources that are both rigorous and engaging. My educational programs have even received recognition from the U.S. Congress and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

I have spent countless hours crafting the lessons and activities that are part of the Virginia Teacher Club. When you join, you can rest assured that you are gaining access to a library of SOL-aligned resources that are both challenging and engaging. Check out what one of our members said about the resources included.

4. Take hours of your time back each week

The National Education Association (NEA) estimates that elementary teachers spend 12 hours per week on administrative duties including lesson planning and creating resources. But, what if it didn’t have to take that long? With the Virginia Teacher Club, you can save hours every week because you no longer have to spend time searching for and creating resources aligned to the SOLs. The amount of time saved is the #1 thing we hear from our current members.
