Are you in your first few years of teaching?  

Are you FREAKING OUT because you desperately need hands-on help to work on getting ready for back-to-school and improving your teaching?

Stop us if any of this sound familiar:

  • You're fresh off of your student teaching experience, armed with the knowledge of the latest innovations and research in education, and a collection of tried and true lesson plans, you're ready to rock this!  
  • That is until you're in your classroom, faced with 30+ students squirming in their chair, wandering around the classroom, or yelling to their friends across the room.  
  • Your students don't seem to understand the material, are failing your assessments, and are becoming increasingly frustrated.  
  • You've already received an unhappy parent email. Your colleagues down the hall don't talk to you. You're not entirely sure what you should be teaching, but nobody is helping you.  

Oh, and you're being evaluated.

How would it feel if:

 πŸ“Œ You could walk into your classroom every day feeling confident?  

πŸ“Œ You could stand in front of your students thinking, "I GOT THIS!"  

πŸ“Œ You had a classroom full of engaged students eagerly working on your assignments?  

πŸ“Œ Your class was a positive learning environment where every student respected each other?  

πŸ“Œ Your students had more looks of AHA! than WHAT?

Does this sound like YOU?

πŸ˜” No matter how much you plan, your students still struggle.  

😣 You're trying to do everything, and are overwhelmed.  

πŸ™„ You're spending evenings and weekends grading and planning lessons.  

😧 Family and friends wonder if you even exist.

πŸ€” You're wondering if you chose the right profession.  

πŸ˜’ It seems like nobody in your school likes you, and you feel alone.  

😑 You're constantly asking yourself - why didn't they teach me about this in school?!?!

Imagine what it would feel like if: 

 πŸ“Œ You could attend PLC or department meetings feeling like you contributed something positive and useful  

πŸ“Œ Your students' parents supported and applauded your work  

πŸ“Œ Your colleagues worked together with you as a team  

πŸ“Œ Your principal gave you a positive evaluation  

πŸ“Œ You could go home and spend no more than an hour on school work  

πŸ“Œ You had your weekends to relax and reset for the following week  

πŸ“Œ You looked forward to going to school EVERY DAY  

If you're a new teacher and yelled, I WANT THAT!! to any of these statements, then the solution to these problems is FINALLY here.


Introducing the Teachers Need Teachers One-on-One Coaching!

The Teachers Need Teachers Coaching helps beginning teachers learn what aspects of teaching to focus on for the most impact.  

No more guessing, poring over countless blogs looking for answers, and hands up in despair.  

You'll get a monthly one-hour private coaching session where I work with you to improve your teaching in a way that works with you personality and style of teaching. You'll also receive actionable tactics that you can implement immediately and successfully.  

You'll also be able to message and email me when teaching gets tough to work out your frustrations with your school and classroom, and overall help you ditch the overwhelm and frustration of those first few years of teaching!


"Kim has guided me throughout the beginning teacher process, given me sage advice, and has helped navigate the day to day process of teaching in general. She is always willing to reach out whenever I need help.  

I felt that Kim was the most influential with my overall confidence by sharing her 16-year tenured wisdom. As a new teacher, I often lack the confidence in my lessons and/or approach to new situations that are continually being presented.  

Teachers often joke and say that students smell fear and lack of confidence. There is a hint of truth in that: students will try to get away will test teachers. Being confident while teaching (I believe) is a key ingredient to a successful classroom. It is because of Kim’s help that I have made progress to make that possible."

What you'll get:

  • A monthly private one-hour coaching call to work on what you need to succeed
  • Access to me via messaging and email
  • Compassionate and judgement-free support that will help you THRIVE those first few years! 

Your mentor and coach

My name is Kim Lepre, and I've been an educator for 16 years. I've been a Beginning Teacher Mentor for the past five years and have given numerous technology and standards-based trainings throughout my district. I'm thrilled to share my knowledge with you!  

During my career, I've taught band, choir, AVID, Study Skills, and all levels of English Language Arts (ELA), including special education, English Learners, accelerated, and students with disabilities with a coteacher. I'm currently the ELA department head at my school and an Induction mentor to beginning teachers, and have also served as an ELA Curriculum and Educational Technology Specialist. I have a Leading Edge Blended Learning certificate and am a Level 2 Google Certified Educator.

"Kim has worked tirelessly with me through this whole process as a new teacher. Each week we take time to talk about how things are going in my classroom, and she gives me strategies to implement based off of the topics of concern I have.  

I appreciate her knowledge and expertise in teaching. She has guided me through classroom management issues as well as providing me with valuable resources to use in my classroom such as activities for various units. We also discuss whether or not certain lessons were successful, and why.  

She knows just what to do and say to guide me through this whole process, and she does it in an upbeat and fun way that makes me feel like I just might make it through all of this in my first semester of teaching!"

YES! I need help with teaching! 

I need this coaching now!


You Might Be Wondering...

Didn't I already learn this in college?

Did you? Or did you just cover it? I'm sure you've realized by now that much of what you learned in college - even in your teacher preparation courses - doesn't apply in real life.

How do I know if this coaching is right for me? 

If you're a newer teacher and you're struggling in ANY way, then this coaching is perfect for you! The first few years of teaching are hard and frustrating, but with proper guidance and support, you WILL succeed and gain confidence in your teaching.  

How is this different from reading books or going on other Facebook groups? 

As a new teacher, you're strapped for time, and you're barely keeping your head above the water. Do you really have time to grade those assignments, plan lessons, answer emails, complete paper, AND read books on how to be a better teacher?  

Wouldn't it be easier if someone just SHOWED you what to focus on instead of trying to figure it out on your own?  

While those Facebook groups can be helpful in many ways, you've probably found so many different opinions, and unfortunately so many negative and burnt out teachers that have nothing positive or helpful to say.  

As a new teacher, you need someone who will bring you up and not let you down. You need a mentor to teach you how to be better while staying true to who you are!

I already have a mentor at school. How will Teachers Need Teachers help me?  

Congratulations! You're so lucky to have an on-site mentor! So many new teachers are on their own when they start out.

Here's the thing: if you're lucky, you got to pick your mentor, but chances are, you were assigned one. I'm not saying that your mentor won't provide you with the best and timely advice.

But in Teachers Need Teachers, the most significant advantage is privacy. You never know who is talking about you and your teaching. In the community you'll receive amazing support from teachers and mentors who you know won't talk about you to your administrators and colleagues!

The support you offer is a lot like what I received in my teaching courses...  

I completely understand, but remember that now that you've graduated and have a teaching job, you're mostly on your own.  

You may have a mentor assigned to you, and they may or may not be willing to give you the support that you need to succeed your first few years.  

But if that was the case, you probably wouldn't have been looking for this course.

Do you offer refunds?  

YES! I stand by my work and my ability to help you. 

Try out the Teachers Need Teachers Coaching for two weeks and see if it's right for you. If it's not, simply email me at, and I'll issue you a refund - NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

Will you tell my administrator that I'm part of the coaching and community?  

Part of being an ethical coach is keeping your details private. This means that I'll never identify you when discussing your situation in any medium. If your questions or problems are so specific that it would undoubtedly reveal you, it will stay between you and me.

That being said, if you'd like me to keep your administrator updated on your progress, I'd be more than happy to brag about how proactive you are by being part of the coaching and community!

At this point, you have TWO OPTIONS:

1️⃣ Decide NOT to sign up for coaching, and continue with your feelings of overwhelm and despair.  

You may make it through as a teacher, but as you know, statistics show that an alarming number of teachers quit within the first few years of teaching if they DON'T have proper support and mentoring.  

2️⃣ Decide to sign up for Teachers Need Teachers, and know that you'll be able to grow as a teacher without losing your mind and all of your time.  

You've spent all of that time and MONEY to get your teaching credential, and dammit, you're going to make it worth it while making a difference in so many students' lives!
