Hey teacher friends! If you’re anything like me, being organized isn’t one of my strong suits, but it’s something that I value, especially in the classroom. But I usually get overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin or what to do. So on today’s episode, I have guest Kristen Donegan who will be sharing some easy classroom organization and systems that you can implement in your classroom in the fall.
Kristen Donegan has been an elementary school teacher and Reading Specialist since 2005. She founded Easy Teaching Tools that has helped over a thousand busy teachers implement classroom hacks to save time, implement research-based practices to meet the needs of their students, and focus on work-life balance.
What’s funny is, as teachers, organization seems to be the last thing on our minds or our to-do list, but it’s really an essential aspect to running a smooth classroom. Most people think of organization as keeping things together or putting items in a bin, but it’s so much more than that. Organization can also be systems and routines that help provide a purpose for that particular task.
Everyone wants to achieve the perfect work-life balance, and having the right classroom organization will help you with achieving that goal. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or veteran teacher, there’s a classroom organization tip that will resonate with you. Kirsten helps easily identify areas of improvement for more efficiency in your classroom.
Throughout the episode, Kristen gives a variety of easy classroom organization tips, tricks, and hacks that will ultimately make your classroom run smoothly and your life simpler!
