#1. Print out lessons off the internet! hahaha!
What I do is look for something specific, print off only what I need
at that moment...not what I might use later! It has saved me tons of useless
#2. I Don't leave my classroom messy! Not even for a day!
#3. I keep EVERYTHING for school in one binder dubed "myplan book"! hahaha!
Including student directory, all staff phone lists, meeting lists, schedules,
and yes...planning calendar! haha!
#4. I bought those accordian binders to file work things (things that might
go into my portfolio, like letters from parents/students, CEU papers, phots,
fliers from projects I have worked on) and one for bills (I know lots of folks
who do this...I just jumped on the band wagon!)
#5. I fill up garbage bags weekly! Under my desk is a pile of all the
things I have printed that didn't look the way I wanted or ended up not
needing....into a bag to go the dump (a weekly event!)
#6. Be brutal with the piles!!! Getting rid of piles is ALMOST as good as
loosing 10 pounds! hahaha!
