057: Top 3 Areas to Organize in Your Classroom

I always ask teachers what their biggest pain points are when it comes to teaching and more specifically, organization. There are overarching themes I see day in and day out. One of the biggest being “where do I start?!?” I always recommend starting small, with an area that is easy to organize in a matter of a few minutes and then working up to bigger things. Also, don’t feel like you have to reorganize your whole classroom in one weekend. It’s a gradual thing. It should be. Too much at once, especially while you're in a school year with kids, can be a lot to change everything at once. So instead, I recommend starting with a few key areas that I will share today. www.thesimplyorganizedteacher.com https://www.facebook.com/groups/1966093613630476 https://www.instagram.com/thesimplyorganizedteacher https://pages.convertkit.com/72312d887c/dfad803296
