So I was having a hard time with time management and getting things done. I have two preps a day for 30-40 minutes, and I am grateful for that, but they do go by fast. By the time I go to the bathroom and do other things, it seems like I don't get anything significant done. The only thing that's helping me is that I have an ongoing to-do list that I continually check things off of--otherwise my head would be spinning. My two preps are 2nd and 4th period, so if I don't get it done, I have no other chance for the day since I teach 5th-9th. So I came up with a plan so that hopefully I get more done and don't have spend my whole weekends on school stuff. Mondays-grade, update classroom website, do my PBIS committee things Tuesdays-Work on anything assessment related and anything related to parent contact Wednesdays-work on things that are due from principals, random things Thursdays-plan lessons for my classes for the following week and get copies done Fridays-plan lessons for my co-teachers and get their copies done Does anyone else do something like this where you stick to a strict schedule of what to do? Does it work? Even if I have to do anything at night, that's okay as long as I get my weekends back.
