Do you wish you could boost productivity of your team in your classroom? Or that you could save time to get everything done during the day…without having to take it home on nights and weekends as often?
Given the stress level and burnout of special educators, you are most definitely the alone. However, there are systems you can put in place that will save time in the long run. The key is to set them up and refine them…and then they will run themselves and increase productivity of the classroom team during the school day.
I have set up a LOT of classrooms in my time. At one point in my career, I felt like I set up classrooms for a living. At the beginning of every year as a consultant, I started school over and over and over in different parts of the country. And that doesn’t even account for all the classrooms I’ve set up over the years in the middle of the year, or just did minor revisions to.
And there is one reason for spending all of this time setting up classrooms. I firmly believe if you set up the classroom well, it cuts down on the amount of work you have to do for the rest of the year. If the classroom systems aren’t established, you play catch up for the rest of the year.
In This Episode
In this episode I share 5 tips for systems that boost productivity in your classroom. These tips can help you delegate more effectively and save time.
In other words, if you are like me and have a hard time giving up responsibility, I’ve got some suggestions for you (and me). The tips will also help you set up systems in the classroom that will increase productivity of all the adults in the area where they are needed. And this means less work for you at the end of the day.
