Welcome to The Cornerstone by Angela Watson!
I’m Angela Watson, and I’m a National Board Certified Teacher with five years of classroom experience in the Washington, D.C., area and six years in South Florida. I started this website more than thirteen years ago because I wanted to share ideas around the practical aspects of running a classroom.
I’ve worked as an instructional coach based in Brooklyn, NY for the past seven years, writing books for teachers and creating both online courses and curriculum resource materials.
So, my work takes on a lot of different forms, but it’s all centered around supporting teachers, and I love that! You can read more on the About page. Below you can find out about my latest resources, or use the navigation menu at the top of the page to explore more. In the sidebar to the right, you’ll find lots of options for following my resources on Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media. I’m looking forward to connecting with you!
The 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club
This is a one year professional development program and learning community that is centered on productivity. Teachers in over 3,000 schools have already begin working smarter and saving time! Learn more about when you can join here.
My behavior management online course has been helping teachers prevent behavior problems and build a classroom community for more than four years! I’ve also released two courses to help you get started as an educational consultant and build a teacherpreneur brand.
Printable Teaching Resources
I love to create curriculum support materials for K-8 math, reading, writing, and classroom management. You can view some of these items below, or go to the Printables page to see all the free and priced resources I’ve created for my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Books and eBooks
I’ve published four books for teachers. The latest is called Unshakeable: 20 Ways to Enjoy Teaching Every Day…No Matter What. Click the covers below to learn more.
Angela Watson’s Truth for Teachers Podcast
In January 2015, I launched a weekly podcast to inspire teachers and get you energized for the week ahead!

At a quick 10 minutes per episode, Truth for Teachers is perfect for staring off your Monday morning commute with positivity and encouragement.
