Teacher planners!  They are a much-needed resource for teachers, but teachers don’t just want just any planner either.  Teachers are picky.  They know exactly what style and fit they need.

As a teacher, I can’t tell you how many times I literally scour the internet in search of which teacher planner I will use in the coming year.  A personalized teacher planner that “fits” my needs.  Over the years I have stuck with two – Blue Sky and Happy Planner.  I have gone back and forth between the two over the years. Why?  Honestly, it was what I could get my hands on when I needed it.  If I went to Michael’s to pick up a Happy Planner and they did not have one in stock that appealed to me, I would pick up the Blue Sky planner.    Even though these are my go tos, I have found myself constantly looking for the best teacher planner available.


Getting a brand new teacher planner is like getting a beautiful bouquet of flowers!  It is something that speaks to who you are.  From the cover to the stickers used inside, my life planner is a beautiful representative of me  Why did I suddenly call it a life planner?  Because I literally use mine for both teaching and life.

If you are looking for a teacher planner for the upcoming school year, take a look at our list below.  We consulted teachers across the U.S. to find out which teacher planners they recommend.  Below you’ll find the Top 5 Teacher Planners.
