I always wanted to be teacher, and was so excited for my first real teaching position that I could hardly think straight. But a few months in, I realized teaching was a whole lot harder than I thought it would be.

Too many of my students just weren’t listening to me, and many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I didn’t want to admit it (even to myself), I wasn’t enjoying teaching. It wasn’t just the “you need to pull it together” meeting with my principal and the “I can’t face my class” 7:45am crying fit in the back hallway. It was the everyday struggle, the constant feeling that I was failure in my own classroom.

Praise the Lord, He didn’t let me stay there. Through the advice of trusted mentors, a much-needed book, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned how to keep my students’ attention, and I started to gain the confidence that I could actually do this.

As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching my next class. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God soften hearts and change lives right in front of me. No matter what challenges you’re facing, you too can rekindle your passion for teaching. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do the small groups meet?
The beauty of Voxer is that we don't have to set up meeting times. You can pop in the group whenever it's convenient for you to share your thoughts & listen to others' insights. It feels like a live conversation but without any of the scheduling hassles.
Why is there a charge to join a discussion group?
The discussion groups used to be free, but we found that only a small percentage of those who joined one actually participated - kind of defeating the purpose. So we decided to charge a small free to join a small group so that each group will be full of engaged teachers who definitely want to be there - thus providing a much better experience for you :)
What kind of technology do I need?
Just a smartphone or a computer - or a tablet even. The Voxer app is available on iPhone & Android - or you can access it online from pretty much any device.
I'm not that great with technology. Am I going to be able to do this?
Definitely. Voxer is super easy to use. Once you set up an account, we'll put you in a group. From there you just push a button to talk and push play to listen. That's about it.
Do you offer a moneyback guarantee?
Yes, if for any reason you're not happy with Teach Uplifted, you have 30 days to request a refund. Keep in mind, though, that you'll be leaving your group one member short if you bow out. So while we all understand extenuating circumstances, we hope you'll plan to stay with us for the full program.
What if I get behind? Will I still be able to participate?
For sure! We have a schedule for Teach Uplifted, but everyone ends up going at whatever pace works for them. The format of the groups is flexible so that you can ask questions and join the conversation no matter where you are in the program.
