Hello everyone!

I'm excited to announce this Patreon, "Mr. Cheever's Class," a free resource for teachers and students. Thank you so much for stopping by to take the time and consider supporting me and my work.

I love education and teaching...

...and over the past years, I have built skills, knowledge, and experiences I want to share with other teachers who may have a hard time creating materials, or thinking up lessons and activities. 
My time teaching at my current school is coming to a close, and I am now at a turning point in my life as I look for new opportunities in my career. Where will I end up?  Only time can tell. 
However, I'm just as eager to educate as I have ever been, and with Patreon I can continue to do just that. 

What is "Mr. Cheever's Class"?

"Mr. Cheever's Class" is currently a Blog on Wordpress, with ambitious plans for growth and expansion. Here at the beginning, I plan to create polished, clean, and professional teaching materials that I will release once per week on my blog. Each post will also include notes on the use of the material, and my personal suggestions or observations. 

While the materials I create will mostly fall under my skill set as an English and Social Science teacher, I will also create general purpose tools, as well as materials for other fields of study, like psychology, philosophy, speech, science, and others.

As my support grows, I plan on growing my content with it. My goals for the future include increasing the frequency with which I release material, writing blog posts on educational methodology and other broad topics, providing weekly writing prompts for writing workshops, and even expanding to a full-fledged YouTube channel, where I will post video lessons that would be useful to a flipped classroom.

This Patreon begins now as a side-job, but I hope that in the future, as my support grows through all of you, that I can expand and improve. Maybe one day, together, we can turn this little blog of mine into an invaluable resource for teachers everywhere.

This is my pledge to all of you, my supporters.

  • I will create material on a steady weekly basis using all of my skill, experience, and understanding.
  • I will listen to you, and help create the kinds of materials you want and need in your classrooms.
  • I will grow and expand as the support for me and my work grows.
  • I will continue to improve the quality of my content.
  • I will continue to learn (and have fun as I do), and make sure you learn and have fun as well!

How does that sound? 

Please support me, and I will work for you!
Thanks for your time and consideration!

You have my sincerest thanks, and access to the patron-only feed, where you can leave me comments and communicate with other Patreon subscribers. Future benefits might include having a voice in changes to the look and feel of materials, the blog and the website, as well as sneak-peaks at upcoming materials and other bonuses.

You will have your name added to the “Supporters Page” on the "Mr. Cheever’s Class” website.
Pledge $5 or more per creation
0 patrons
You will receive all lower levels, and your name will be added to the Patron Hall of Fame list, instead of the Patreon Supporters list on the “Supporters Page” on the "Mr. Cheever’s Class” website. You will also be able to add any one educational concept, idea, or type of material from English, History, Social Science, Philosophy, etc. of your choice to the “Patreon Suggested Topics” list, which I will potentially use for the monthly exclusive material. If I run out of exclusive topic options, supporters at this level will be able to supply more choices.
Pledge $10 or more per creation

You will receive all lower levels, and your suggested topics from the $5 level will be moved to the “Priority Topics” list, from which I will draw first.
Pledge $15 or more per creation
0 patrons
You will receive all lower levels, and I will end one of my blog posts (or videos if I gain enough support) with a dedication specifically to you.
Pledge $25 or more per creation

You will receive all lower levels, and I will write and mail you a cheesy personal thank-you card twice a year (one in June and one in December).
Pledge $35 or more per creation
0 of 30 patrons
You will receive all lower levels, and I will read your name as a personal shout-out in a monthly Patreon thank-you video. (If I am able to begin creating video content regularly, this level will turn into having your name in the credits at the end of every video.)
Pledge $50 or more per creation

You will receive all lower levels, and I will personally read, edit and provide feedback in a video, and with typed out notes, on a draft of one school paper per month
A few caveats: 
  • The paper must not total more than 25 pages.
  • I must be given enough time - no less than a week - to complete the feedback. 
  • The number of papers I will give feedback on do not stack up per month that passes.
Pledge $80 or more per creation
0 of 20 patrons
You will receive everything from the $35 level and below, and I will create one additional piece of educational material according to whatever instructions or specifications you want, on whatever topic you want per month. 
A few caveats:
  • Each piece of material must be comparable to one of my normal pieces in terms of workload.
  • I can only really cover topics I know and have the skills to make. For instance, I would be unable to make a math lesson with adequate understanding unless it was for a very low grade level.
  • After a one-month timed exclusive, I can release these pieces on my blog as part of the normal monthly line-up of work, and I will dedicate that material to you.

I consider this a reward for a "one-off pledge," meaning that you will subscribe for one month until the charge clears, and then you can unsubscribe.
I will personally read, edit and provide feedback on a draft of your book, script, or dissertation. My feedback will come in the form of a video, as well as typed notes, as well as earn my eternal gratitude. 

If you want to keep subscribing at this level, starting at the second month you will receive all of the levels from $80 down, and you will be added to the top of the “Sponsors” page on the "Mr. Cheever’s Class” website. I will even provide a space for a logo or picture of you with links to any of your social media or business websites, though you will need to provide these to me. I am only obliged to keep these links up so long as you continue to subscribe at this level.
Goals
$11 of $500 per creation
At $500 per month, I can treat this Patreon as the real side-job i want it to be, and I can begin to really focus on the quality of the material.
Beyond that, however, this level will guarantee the following:
  • I will create one piece or package of teaching material for free per week. (What I already do).
  • I will create one “Workshop Writing Prompt” per week. A “Workshop Writing Prompt” will be a writing prompt focused on practicing a particular writing skill through a creative writing exercise. It will be polished and professional in appearance, like all of the teaching materials I plan on developing.
