Handling a middle or high school classroom is not all pretty bulletin boards and Pinterest Classrooms.

When working with older students, not all the cute ideas from Pinterest are going to keep them engaged and it is a real struggle to get them participating, but you know there’s got to be a way to really get students inspired. 

And you know there has to be a way to do it without spending ALL of your time working.

What you really want is to...

  • Have students excited about coming to class
  • Spend less time grading and planning
  • Quit taking work home with you on the weekends
  • Be an amazing, inspiring teacher WITHOUT giving up your life outside of work

You can have all of these things and it starts with Designing Your Digital Classroom to keep students engaged and lessen your workload!

Over 20 experts will teach you strategies you can use to create engaging and innovative lessons that students will love and will save you time!

Maybe you’re...

Overwhelmed by all the grading, lesson planning, meetings, emails, and paperwork

Confused about where to start with things like Culturally Responsive Teaching or Restorative Practices

Struggling trying to keep your students engaged with what's happening the classroom rather than what's happening on their phones

Whatever it is for you, it’s time to take back your time and energy and create the teaching life you desire! 

The Design Your Digital Classroom Summit will show you how!

Meet Your Host

Hey! I'm Emily!

I have been a Middle School Language Arts Teacher for the past 8 years and before that I worked in IT. 

So, I have the weirdest and most perfect combination of skills that allow me to help you use technology in your classroom to be the most effective, inspiring educator you can be without letting teaching take over your life. 

That is the power of technology! And it isn't going anywhere. It's the language of our students 

So there’s no good reason to not use it everywhere we possibly can. ESPECIALLY if it makes our lives easier.

(and it does make your life easier. A LOT easier.)

I also know that if you are not used to using technology in your everyday life to make your life easier, it can be really hard to implement in your classroom. 

I know so many teachers struggle with knowing which app to use, how to make it fun but also focused on learning, and how to deal with tech issues when they come up. 

But when you learn how to do it right, it can be the most rewarding experience for both you as the teacher and for your students!

Inside Rebel Teacher Academy, I help Middle and High School teachers learn about the valuable tech tools they can use in their classroom to make engaging lessons and save themselves time!

And I created the Design Your Digital Classroom Summit to get this info into the hands of as many teachers as possible and bring you over 20 experts to help you implement these strategies in your own classroom!

Here are All of the Details


The Design Your Digital Classroom Summit will run from April 3-7, 2023 with a variety of presentations to choose from each day.


I don't know about you, but I prefer to leave my house as little as possible. With that being said, you can tune into the summit from anywhere with Internet access.


Presentations will be about 30 minutes in length. The presentations will be available for 24 hours to encourage you to stop waiting for the right time and take action along with hundreds of other teachers.


You’ll also have access to a private Facebook group for the summit, where we’ll be partying it up before the summit starts and working together to level up our classrooms once it kicks off.


As an attendee, you’ll have the chance to win prizes based on engagement, BINGO, and giveaways. In fact, entries are being awarded right now in the Facebook group. Come on in and join the fun!


After registering, you can also upgrade to gain access to the Digital Classroom Power Pack. That means you'll get lifetime access to presentations, a private podcast of all of the presentations so you can listen anywhere, a workbook so you can start taking action immediately, AND amazing bonuses from our speakers. You won't want to miss it!


Watching presentations is great, but to see real change happen, you’ll have to take action. And doing so alongside other teachers with similar goals is powerful. That’s why we’ll have live, interactive events throughout the Summit! These sessions include:

  • ACTION PLANNING - We are going to talk about how to make the most of the Summit and get all the info and learning you need
  • NETWORKING SESSION - Get to know the other Summit Attendees and play some fun games
  • NIGHTLY PAJAMA PARTIES - Each night, we will have a casual Q&A session with our speakers from the topic of the day
  • SAVING TIME WITH TECHNOLOGY MASTERCLASS - We will go over the quickest ways to start saving time in your classroom right now and how to keep it going for the long term!

These sessions have been designed to take what you’ll learn throughout the week and start creating units and lessons that you can use in your classroom next week!


I am dedicated to helping you create the classroom of your dreams and making the process as easy as possible. To help, you’ll hear about the Rebel Teacher Academy Membership here and there throughout the event. 

On the final day, one lucky (and engaged) attendee will be selected to win a full scholarship and have instant access to all the trainings, challenges, checklists, and resources to make their teaching life a breeze!

Stay tuned for details and your chance to apply!

This Summit Was Made With Middle & High School Teachers in Mind!

There are a lot of summits, trainings, and workshops out there for teachers. So what makes this one different?

So many of those are meant for elementary teachers and us middle and high school teachers are left out. 

But not here. Everything we talk about here is meant for teachers just like you who have multiple classes a day with WAY more students than seems possible.

This summit is made for secondary educators who want to inspire and excite their students using technology that keeps them excited and engaged and makes your life easier!
