Praise for The Together Teacher "Great teachers must master the art of juggling and prioritizing--first there's working with kids and parents. Then there's student data to be analyzed, papers to grade and return, instructional materials to prepare, staff meetings to attend. The Together Teacher has practical answers to all of the above so that we're maximizing our instructional time and personal time, too. I use Maia's techniques on a daily basis and I think every teacher will find tons of wisdom within."--Dave Levin, co-founder, KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) "The Together Teacher is a lifesaver! The organizational system enables me to map out my days, weeks, and months with fluidity and ease. It holds me accountable to what I need to do for my classroom, my school, and other obligations so that I still have time to do what I want to do."--Erin Stanley, fifth grade teacher, Atlanta Public Schools, Georgia
