Hello my name is Monique Kimbrough and I currently a college student. I will be ready for teaching in less than a year. I am extremely excited. Your tips helped me to stay prepared and not fall behind at all. I found it interesting that you said by October or November teachers are unorganized and running around like chickens basically. As a student I have saw unorganized teachers and it is not pleasant. Plan with a mentor was the most useful for me. I plan on talking with my sister who is currently a 4th grade teacher with the same concentration. She will be able to guide in the right direction. Thanks!

This was a great reminder of fantastic ways to keep organized. I agree that organization is not a one fits all. I have not yet started teaching, I am working on my Masters Degree and I love reading the advice from all and know it will make me a better teacher.

Organization is Key

I will be a first-year teacher in September 2013. One of my main concerns is how I will remain organized. Each course I take I learn more and more on how to be an efficient teacher, however, organization has never really been a topic of learning.

I know that remaining organized will deem to be difficult once I am in the classroom and trying to stay on top of the grading of 120 students and writing lesson plans. This of course is just the beginning of organization that I need to think about. I'll need to organize my classroom in an efficient manner for the students and my own productivity. There will be mounds of paperwork that I will need to distinguish the levels of importance and organize myself to insure that everything is handled appropriately.

I think that an organized teacher is a happy teacher. If the educator is able to put ideas on paper, organize herself/himself to be able to be highly efficient, he or she can focus on teaching instead of focusing on tasks that remain unorganized in the mind or on a desk full of paperwork.

Thanks for the information

Thanks for providing this valuable information. This article is very helpful to me as I am yet to enter the profession and right now I am in university working hard to finish my courses and getting ready to embark into the teaching world. However, with this information I believe I will not feel the pressure to rush up the things when I am teaching! Thanks again.

This article was very helpful to me. This year I have started at a new school and I find myself feeling like I'm at a runner's pace just trying to keep up. As a new teacher, I find myself stretched to the limits so it seems. However, I know that once I get the hang of it, the rules and ways of doing things at the school, I know that I'll be able to shine. The hectic grading period has just ended and I'm ready to make some new resolutions for the rest of the year and upcoming marking period. I'm also looking forward to reading the book by David Allen.
