A LETTER FROM FRANKIE
At the moment, this is a one-woman show.
Hi! I'm Frankie and I started The Educator's Book Club in 2014. At the time, I had a baby at home and was working as a private home school teacher for a family. I felt disconnected to the world of education and realized that I can't be the only teacher to feel that way, so The Educator's Book Club came to life. We originally had 36 members and I was ecstatic and in absolute disbelief. None of these members were personal connections or friends, but soon came to be familiar faces and names. They saw the value in my mission! Imagine my disbelief now that we have over 3,000 members! I can't express how grateful I am knowing that my mission to support teachers seems to be impactful.
Since then, my personal mission has evolved from becoming the best teacher that I can be to providing an impactful and supportive environment for teachers worldwide. Teachers have made some of the biggest impacts on my life. They have made some big impacts in the lives of my loved ones. Through this group, I've found my mission in life. I want to help provide support for teachers by connecting teachers across districts, states, and country lines.
And, so, enter Edulie Suite as the main hub for hosting all things related to The Educator's Book Club and the This is My Teacher Voice podcast and animated shorts. Let's provide support for teachers while also sharing their teacher voices with the world! I have big dreams for Edulie Suite, but, for now, I have to take one step at a time.
I've learned that I provide the best content and community when I'm able to focus on this project solely. Essentially, it's a full-time job in itself.
Since my year as a first-time mother in 2014, I am now a mother of two beautiful girls. They are my world and the idea of working two jobs (Edulie Suite and something else) is too much to consider. I've realized two things in recent years.
My girls are my number one priority.
The idea of giving up Edulie Suite for another job hurts too much.
I believe in this too much to give up on it.
So, I'm asking for support. If you find value in this mission, I would be forever grateful for your financial support.
As a thank you for your support, I'm releasing a monthly planner and book study workbook every month for supporters of this mission. I love creating beautiful planners and journals, and want to share that creativity with you all. Each month, the planners will have a different theme. I'll also tweak the content as I receive feedback from you all about what you like and don't like.
If you made it down to this last paragraph of this mini-autobiography, THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart, thank you. If you decide to be a supporter, I'll see you in the exclusive members pages of this website!
With much love,
