I've been having a similer problem. I think my problem stems from being
so involved in whatever I'm doing, I often lose track of the time. I've
noticed that when I give them enough time to clean up, they do a better
job. The problem I face in doing this is now they stand in front of the
door with 3 minutes left in class waiting for the bell to ring.
