We’re Caitlin and Jessica.

And this all started when we were teaching across the hall from one another at a school in L.A.

One summer, we launched an ELA camp to help students get ahead for the summer, using the frameworks we’d developed for our own classrooms. It was a runaway success, and we realized that we wanted to share what we’d discovered with other teachers.

Because frameworks didn’t just make us better teachers…

They also simplified our planning and grading processes, so we had time to do the other things in life. Like read bedtime stories to our kids, squeeze in a long run, or just sit back on the sofa with a new episode of Grey’s and a glass of Pinot Grigio.

Caitlin says: Jessica is the queen of batch planning—and the brilliant creative mind that makes sure both students and teachers have a blast with our activities. (Those escape rooms? All her.)

Jessica says: Caitlin always has big, HUGE ideas—and the organizational skills to pull them off. She’s also the one who’s going to remind you that, when you’re having a bad day, you need to put on your own oxygen mask first.

Our EB Lesson Planning Approach Trainings so you can break that buy, teach, throw away cycle and become PROACTIVE in terms of how you approach writing as well as how you plan for the weeks and months to come.

Highly Engaging Monthly Bundles of Resources (We get to feel a bit like Oprah - YOU get a bundle, and YOU get a bundle, and YOU get a bundle!). We craft each bundle by pairing a vital ELA topic - based on Common Core standards - with a fun theme. The activities within a bundle can be used to cover multiple days of instruction.

Our Grammar Corner because we know you can’t get enough grammar - this part of the membership is full of engaging games with practical grammar instruction baked right in.

Support from our community of EB Teachers. The best part of the club is hanging out with other middle school ELA teachers in our private Facebook group.

Group Coaching and Q&A from us, the founders of EB Academics! Each month, we pop in for group coaching sessions - jot your questions down in your Notes app (or 3x5 card - whatever’s handy) and then send them our way.
