Hi and welcome to Picture Book Brain! My name is Josh Ryan, and in 2010 I was a new teacher in a second grade bilingual classroom.
As a first year teacher, that meant that I failed a lot. I had no lesson plans or even a lesson plan framework to have a successful lesson. Literacy was my favorite, though, so I wanted to make my literacy block my most successful time. I worked HARD, but I now have read aloud lessons for books that I LOVE. I also have curriculum for other subject areas including ESL, math and language development in two languages that I continue to develop and you can too!
In my school, I’ve mentored new teachers, and I love working with teachers to help them get the tools to become more effective and have a better work/life balance by simplifying their planning and integrate technology in their classrooms.
Whether you’re a first year educator or a veteran, you don’t have any time to lose in school or outside school. I develop lesson plans and lesson plan frameworks that you can implement and take your teaching to the next level TOMORROW and continue to use for years to come whether you’re teaching face to face, distance learning / virtual or teaching in a hybrid situation. If you lose your weekends with family because you have to plan your lessons. I was there too. NO LONGER. Get your planning for the week done by Friday afternoon.
Send me an email! I love talking to teachers!
