The Together Teacher is a “how-to” guide on getting organized (enough) to be a great classroom teacher. It’s filled with clear advice and step-by-step actions for building habits, finding tools that work for you, and creating space to become a “Together Teacher.” This classroom-tested resource shows how to be incredibly effective and have a life too! Throughout the book, author and educator Maia Heyck-Merlin explores the key routines of Together Teachers—how they plan ahead, organize work and their classrooms, and how they spend their limited free time. You’ll find real teacher to-do lists, calendars, classroom photos, email in-boxes, and more! The habits outlined in this book will serve you well as professionals working in an unpredictable, on-your-feet, data-rich environment.

The accompanying CD contains a wealth of resources, such as: A Professional Development Guide, a Reader’s Guide, many templates to customize, sample full-color calendars, and more.
