I don't know about you guys, but I have a terrible problem with filing
my art projects away, so I can use them next year. I did not have
secretarial skills in HS and I know I could be better organized.
I teach 1st through 6th grade and as you know that is alot of projects
for one teacher to keep track of. I have a regular filing cabinet, with
6 drawers. I designate each drawer for each grade level. I try to put
the projects in the file according to when they are taught, starting in
september through May. I also put examples in the file with the
procedures. This drawer is jammed full for each grade level. Sometimes I
have a hard time trying to find what I need. I think I need a larger
filing cabinet, like the music teachers. They told me that they have a
lateral filing cabinet, and much larger than the regular letter filing
cabinets. What kind do you guys have and is there an easier way to
organize my files ??? Would appreciate any help, as I plan on
reorganizing myself when I get back to school. I have my own personal
filing cabinet here at home in my art room, and it is jammed full too. I
plan on retiring in three years and would like to leave my files well
organized for the next art teacher that takes over so he/she can find
everything without any trouble.
