Teachers, there is so much on our plates this year. It feels like every teacher could use a 4 week paid vacation to the tropical destination of choice right about now. Anyone else? The work we are doing is so important, but the stress of being a teacher is no joke. We are always striving to do the most for our students, and in return, we often forget to prioritize our time and mental health.
Well, it’s 2021. We are saying goodbye to hours and hours of planning and prep outside of our contract hours. Education to the Core has the solution to all of your planning and prepping problems with their new Premium Membership! Are the benefits of an ETTC Membership really all they’re cracked up to be? The answer is yes. Let’s dive into how a Premium Membership with Education to the Core will help you save your time, your money, and your sanity.
Benefits of an ETTC Membership 1 – Your Time
Before signing up for a premium membership, I thought I had the best time management skills. I pre-planned out exactly how I would use each prep period I had and designated time for lesson planning, printing, organizing, etc. Then I signed up for premium membership and realized I could cut the time I was spending on planning and prepping in half. 🎉
Even when I was the most productive and motivated, sifting through big bundles in my Google Drive or printed binders took time. I could be prepared for the next week, know what I wanted to teach, and use it to support my lessons, but still take 45 minutes to track down that one roll and read activity that I used last year and loved. Where did I put it? The system I’ve been using has gotten me this far but is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.
Do you find this to be true for you? I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone. Many teachers have spent years…even decades trying to master the best way to stay organized from year to year. I’m relieved to share that our battle with this is over. Education to the Core has solved all of our problems with their new option of membership. Simply use the website to search for a topic you need materials for, and instantly find what you need.
No more hours of searching on TPT or Pinterest for the best resources–with a premium membership, it’s a one-stop-shop! Everything you need for ELA, math, science, social studies, with one simple click. If you don’t believe me, watch the Tiktok down below ⬇️ as I prep for the next week within a matter of minutes using Education to the Core’s premium membership!
2 – Your Money
I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for a TPT sale. If there’s a sale…I feel like I NEED to be buying things. Even if I don’t need anything! Making purchases for my classroom has quickly become second nature. It amazes me sometimes how easy it is to click the purchase button, forgetting how quickly it adds up. 😭
With the premium membership, there is no more waiting for a big sale to happen…hooray! With a simple one-time payment, you have access for the whole year (yes the whole year 🤯) to amazing resources that can support your learners. No more deciding if a resource is worth the money or not. You don’t need to remember if you already bought a resource. No more items waiting in your cart until your next paycheck. Pay now, and give your debit card a break for the rest of the year! 🤑
Plus, did we mention that premium members get EARLY access to our newly launched resources? That’s right. No more countdowns until that new resource you’ve been waiting for launches! Not only do you get unlimited printables for the year, but you get the newest and most recent printables before anyone else! It truly doesn’t get better than that.
Benefits of an ETTC Membership 3 – Your Sanity
Okay hear me out…bundles are fun to buy (especially when they are on sale) but a major hassle to download and sift through. I admit that I am always on the lookout for a good bundle, but what I’m not a fan of is the endless scrolling through hundreds of pages to find the couple pages I want. Education to the Core’s understood the assignment 😉. Say goodbye to endless downloading, extracting, and searching through massive zip files, and say hello to convenience! Take a look at the Tiktok down below and see how easy it is to pull resources from bigger bundles, without needing to download the whole thing!
So again, I ask you, are the benefits of an ETTC Membership really worth the hype they’re receiving? I think the feedback speaks for itself! Here is what teachers who signed up for premium membership are saying:
“I LOVED having access to ALL PRINTABLES within the ETTC store! There are so many engaging resources that incorporate art, social-emotional learning, literacy, math, and more! In addition, the ETTC team is great! They truly care about educators and students.” – Alyssa B.
“The Premium Membership was an AWESOME experience. You have all of the ETTC’s resources at your fingertips! They are constantly coming out with products, so the membership is like an endless growing bundle.” – Diana G.
“Education to the Core consistently produces quality printables and activities. Purchasing the membership gives you access to ALL of their printables instead of buying them one by one.” – Jennifer H.
