Erin Condren and TFA Team Up on Teacher’s Lesson Planner
If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest lately (or if you are a living, breathing teacher) you have likely stumbled on the colorful, organized joy of Erin Condren’s popular LifePlanner™ stylized organizer and Teacher’s Lesson Planner. Condren started her California-based company in 2005 focusing on personalized stationery and gift labels but soon realized that, despite our increasing dependency on digital organizers and time savers, there was still a demand for dependable, attractive print planners. She worked with her business partners, a fine art printer, to develop a small run of planners and found a devoted following.
Condren developed her first planner specifically for teachers after talking with teacher friends who were looking for more stylish ways to keep their classrooms and to-do lists in check. Enter the Teacher’s Lesson Planner, a functional printed planner complete with grading sheets, calendars, stickers, and more to keep you organized.
“Teachers have always been near and dear to my heart,” says Condren. “Both my parents were educators and have been the most incredible role models to me and thousands of students they have influenced over the decades they spent in the classroom. It's one of the toughest jobs and also one of the most important careers since they are shaping our youth around the world.”
Since the Lesson Planner’s introduction, Condren has released a new edition each year, and we are thrilled to announce that this year’s release will benefit kids in classrooms across the country. For every Teacher’s Lesson Planner sold this month, Erin Condren is donating $1 to Teach For America through May 31, 2016. We have also collaborated with the Erin Condren team to create a limited edition TFA cover featuring inspiring words (Teach. Lead. Change the World.) for every teacher.
