  • I love hearing Caitlin and Jessica talk about batch planning. I took their advice in the summer, and I batch planned my entire year for 6 different preps- 3 ELA classes and 3 Math classes. What a difference it has made in my teaching life! EB Academics is the best!

    • Jennifer, that is so wonderful to hear!! We couldn’t be happier that you’re taking full advantage of the batch planning strategy! It’s a life-saver for sure :).
