You're ready to help your students read and comprehend while helping yourself maintain a healthy work-life balance but you keep making the #1 mistake that will cost you!

I've been where you are.

I was a Title I teacher working in a building that lacked resources. I was constantly feeling like I was on an island all by myself trying to help my children succeed. I had an entire classroom of fifth graders who were reading 3+ years behind grade level. I was doing my best taking on all the new initiatives set by my administration and was on the edge of being completely burned out.


I started looking around...

➤ Constantly looking at other teachers and thinking "How do they do it all? 

➤ Taking shortcuts like movies & worksheets because I just needed a moment to regroup.

➤ Procrastinating and saying, "I'll do better tomorrow".

Days becomes weeks, weeks become months, and the next thing you know, an even BIGGER learning gap formed all because I didn't take action.

Don't be me.


Or worse!

You try to do what you know from childhood, so in order to help improve achievement, you have the "Give MORE mentality".

You try more worksheets, more activities, and more homework.

... And they still JUST DON'T GET IT!

I'm here to tell you that when you do this, you risk leaving students completely confused and overwhelmed.  

And I'm here to tell you that an overwhelmed mind does NOT succeed.

All this extra "work" you provided, simply just wasted even more time.

That’s like trying to fill a leaky bucket with more water!


I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion around how to actually improve reading achievement in students who are behind grade level. If you don't have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, lose momentum, and never end up implementing real change resulting in an even bigger learning gap

Without guidance and support, it can be difficult for you to make any real change at all!

This is where I step in!

SIMPLICITY & CLARITY on What to Teach, When to Teach and How to Teach it
High READING GROWTH in Students that Actually Surpass their Goals
A Bank of Lessons & Activities that Encourage Optimal    ENGAGEMENT
A Weekly Lesson Planning System that SAVES HOURS 
Effective Reading   Professional Development at your Fingertips
Schedules, Routines, & Management Tools Allowing You to be STRESS-FREE

And Being Supported along the journey by a professional!


 The only all-inclusive program that streamlines your reading instruction by supporting you with all the tools and resources needed to teach struggling readers all 5 components of reading without every experiencing teaching burnout.

Homeschool Preschool Mom

“reading predictable text and modeling reading behavior!"

"My favorite result is STORYTIME - we do it every night and she sits for it. Before working with Aja, we specifically struggled with Storytime/reading aloud to our daughter. She is very active and did not want to sit for long periods of time. Storytime has turned into multiple books per night as well as her reading predictable text and modeling reading behavior.”


“Before working with Aja, we struggled with assessing her and knowing what things she should be learning. We were struggling with how to bridge the gap between virtual pre-school and the parent's part of the education process. We also struggled with how to use all of the educational tools we had (apps, flash cards, etc.)."


Now, Our daughter will bring her learning materials to us at times because she wants to do work. Her language skills have improved tremendously. She can express herself better.”

And then there's the K-5 Special Education Teacher  Who took her differentiation to the next level...

"I have designated times to teach new skills, review old skills, and allow opportunities for my students to master skills. This was the game changer for me.”

“Before, I had a schedule that I used from the internet. However, I was constantly searching for more time. I always felt like it just wasn’t enough time.

Now, I save time and feel confident with my new schedule and my bank of ready-made hands-on activities.

Learning how to motivate my students with disabilities was yet another game changer for me. I was able to implement engaging activities as well as rewards. This kept my students going when we were facing exhaustions. The good thing is most of the activities and rewards Aja showed me don’t cost anything!

“Teaching by Design is more than just a reading system, it's a whole experience!"

"TBD has helped me analyze and shape my thoughts on reading success today and reading theories / beliefs that I learned in college. I am encouraged and more intentional with my teaching techniques as I create more games / activities to use in my virtual classroom. I am learning and building tried, tested, & true activities and best practices that actually work in teaching reading for success in young children.

This program is based on state standards and teaches me to understand them with ease. It is an effective application that can be automated and make my teaching life easier than ever. This system has reignited my passion for teaching and excited me to tell others about it. It has so much value and so many useful freebies. It has taught me how to write a more effective, fun lesson plan in less time, giving me time back to do other things.

No more long drawn-out, dreaded, boring weekends of planning. I am done with that! I am teaching smarter not harder and with more confidence and success.  Principals, parents, and students are happy and so am I. I am teaching by design!

Pre-Kindergarten - 5th Grade Virtual Teacher

Working Pre-Kindergarten Mom

“We created a weekly schedule for at home learning!"

"What I liked most was was the weekly schedule, this helps me a lot because I have an idea of what we will work on and it will keep me consistently on schedule... This includes story time; I definitely noticed a change in my daughter right away after implementing the interactive read alouds. We incorporated many hands-on activities; she loves the letter scavenger hunt!”


"Before, I was struggling with juggling working from home and consistent learning time for my 4-year-old."


"Now, my daughter is so excited and eager to have learning time. With 3 days of explicit teaching, she is now able to interact and comprehend during story time. This also helps her with structured independent time.”

“This is Great Aja!
...But What IF I Don’t Have the TIME in my schedule to do these elaborate  LESSONS?!”

This is about the time where you might be saying, “Yeah Aja, but I don’t even have time. My blocks of time are only 20-30 minutes. Shouldn’t I just stick to what I'm doing?" NO.

If I were to hand you the "perfect" reading lesson (there is no such thing as a perfect reading lesson), nine times out of ten, you wouldn't have the time to actually teach the lesson. Most people waste so much time and money trying to create the “perfect” lesson with all these bells and whistles. THEN... they teach the lesson and never get to all the activities. Sound familiar?

...but how do you even squeeze in engaging reading activities in the little time that you have?!

(that’s the beauty of Teaching by Design?)

When you create an effective schedule first, you block off how to maximize the instructional time that you can teach a skill.

...and then you create an engaging lesson that matches that time frame!

This is why in Teaching by Design, I start with maximizing your instructional time first. THEN... I show you how to make the most of your current schedule with simple activities and quick lessons that are designed for mastery of standards.

"Wait, Aja! are you saying this training doesn't just help create better lessons...
...it helps create more effective daily schedules, too?!"

Yes. That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. 😎

Did you know...

Not Enrolling in Teaching By Design will cost you...


Not knowing how to create effective lessons is costing you HOURS each and every week

Claim your life back!


Don't be like the average person spending $15,000 simply on buying activities from online resources.

Save your coins sis!


Not knowing how to create high performing lessons is at the expense of your students.

Shape the future girl!

“Joining Teaching by design was the best decision i ever made!"

"My son is now learning how to recognize letters and numbers. Now, he enjoys storytime, he loves math, he is enjoying writing his letters and numbers and really enjoys Khan Academy. 

What I loved most about Teaching by Design was that Aja is very detailed with the course she gives you a lot to learn. I enjoy learning from her. 

Try Teaching by Design. By taking the course and having a great teacher, I now understand how to teach and make teaching fun. Aja was God sent.


"I didn't know what to teach, how to teach or when to teach. I was lost and didn't know where to begin. I was struggling with how to engage my son to learn. I was struggling with confidence and staying on track."


"Now, I know what to do with my son. I am so gratefulI learned a lot from Aja, and she help me gain confidence.

There has never been a better time to start working smarter, and not harder...

Don't put it off another day.

Start now, and you will finally:

➤ Have a quick planning system that works

➤ Be equipped with all the tools and support you need to increase reading achievement

➤ Know what to teach, when to teach, where to teach, & how to teach reading (WINNING! 🏆)

➤ Have a bank of fun & engaging activities & scripts to just plug into your lesson

If you don't act now, nothing will change.

6 months from now, you’ll still be overwhelmed, and you'll wish you had started today!

“I feel like i'm on the winning team!!!!!!!”

“Aja saved my life. I was becoming burnt out and contemplating returning to middle school because the workload was TOO GREAT as an elementary school teacher. Now, I’m excited that I have SYSTEMS in place that will allow me to teach with fidelity.”

"In this program, I have become knowledgeable and confident to teach concepts with a rinse and repeat method. In the trainings, I love how there are always multiple options to fit everyone’s classroom needs. I’m excited everyday that everything has already been planned out for me. I just need to teach it. WIN WIN!!!! "

“I was able to earn higher scores on my evaluations and my student's reading scores and levels increased over 50%!”

"For the first time in 20 years, I received a low score on my teacher evaluation. I was ashamed, hurt and disappointed. I then started working with Mrs. McNair. She was innovative, caring and very knowledgeable of the curriculum. She took out the time to model how to teach.  After being trained, I earned higher scores on my evaluations and my students reading scores and levels increased over 50%. I know that Aja McNair is a great teacher, encourager, and does all these things with fidelity and a positive attitude."
