When you’re an adult, everyone assumes you’ll be buying a calendar in January. But if you’re a teacher, an academic year calendar might be your go-to. This back-to-school season, you can get a planner just for teaching.
Now, of course, there’s nothing wrong with sticking with a standard, annual planner or creating your own via options like bullet journals. For those who want something school-specific (because work-life balance is a must), Bloom Daily’s Teacher Planner might be the way to go.
bloom daily planners Undated Academic Year Teacher Planner & Calendar
Keep your personal planner and professional planner separate.
The Bloom planner comes undated, and for teachers, this means you can start using it whenever your academic year begins. After all, different districts have different start dates, and a one-date-fits-all approach doesn’t really work. You can add in important dates like holidays, breaks, training, and of course, off-days, all according to your school schedule.
Each month, the planner has an area for you to set goals and plans, and at the end of each month, you’ll be able to do a review. Throughout each month (the planner has a total of 60 weeks, by the way), you’ll find column-style weekly layouts that run Monday through Friday and a column designed just for daily notes. Outside of the actual planning of your week, there are options to use the planner for grading, field trip planning, making substitute teacher plans, and recording student information.

You can also grab a pack of stickers to jazz things up.
As for the nitty gritty stuff, the cover has three interchangeable options that you can slip in and out of the plastic cover sleeve. Creative types can even make their own as it holds an 8.5″ x11″ sheet. The interior paper is 100gsm to prevent bleeding, has 14 colored tabs marking each month, and there’s even a pocket divider.
If you’re a teacher who is already making back-to-school plans, this planner might need to be on your shopping list.
