What People are Saying About the Set Up Success Student Planner

I just wanted to let you know that all last year I tried to get my daughter to use a planner, and she refused. She said that they don’t work for her. I purchased 6 of your planners as I knew that I would be getting a few students to work with on Seeing my Time this Fall. I was also hoping that my daughter would use one. She looked at it, watched the video, and is excited to try using it this school year!! She even decorated the front and back, and has already highlighted all of the school holidays! I am so excited!! Thank you for creating such an awesome tool! I have also sold all of the other planners, and will probably have to order more!

This Planner is Like My Best Friend

Before using my Set up Success planner I had a tremendous issue with organizing my time and writing all my assignments down. My previous school-issued planners were a big struggle, considering they were tiny, cramped with important dates and events for school, and I could only see one week of homework on 2 pages. Now I am able to see a whole month span of homework, keep better track of my homework as well as extracurricular activities, and organize all my papers that I receive each day. Overall, my planner makes me feel like I CAN get through the school year. I really appreciate the little notes of advice for each month and the Daily To Do Page to organize everything I have going on each week. Thank you Marydee for an amazing and extremely helpful tool to help me through the school year! I’ll always remember that my planner is like my best friend!

The student planners were lifesavers for my students and they absolutely loved them. I continue to use and share the tools and strategies I have learned from the various classes I have taken from Marydee. These classes changed my life and how I view my students!
