Get Organized: How to be a Together Teacher

Returning graded homework, responding to parents, attending grade-level meetings, writing letters of recommendation, eating your own lunch... In an environment where even using the bathroom requires advanced planning, organization is key. This course provides insights, templates and exercises designed to get every teacher organized.

About The Course

This course is designed for classroom teachers who juggle time-sensitive tasks and often-exhausting teaching schedules. With an eye toward long-term sustainability, The Together Teacher examines the purpose for planning ahead, provides tools for tracking time commitments, deadlines and tasks, and helps teachers develop a personal organization system that interacts with their day-by-day practices.

All teachers, from the pen & paper list maker to the tech-savvy digital maven, will benefit from the no-nonsense approach to "togetherness" that's presented in this course. We don't care what format you use; we care that you know when you have free time during the day, and that you have a plan for using it.
