Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by everything you want to accomplish as a teacher? Do you ever wish you were better organized for the school day?
Experienced educator Jenny Edwards offers positive and practical ideas for more effectively using your time to accomplish your goals.
Start by analyzing how you use time now and identifying areas you’d like to improve. Then apply more than a dozen time-management strategies, such as breaking a task down into doable pieces, touching paper or e-mail only once, and learning when to say no.
With time-saving tips for planning lessons, assessing students, keeping records, communicating with parents, delegating tasks, and more, this timely publication will show you how to make the most of the hours you have—so you can spend them on what matters most.
