I thought I'd start a thread on this, because I would love to hear how all of you keep your stuff organized. I am a new teacher and I will be teaching 4th grade, as well as beginning visual arts 3 days a week after school on Tues, Wed & Thurs. I THINK I will have a separate room to teach art, but I sure as heck don't want to make that assumption. I am just figuring I'll have to teach 4th grade and also be a visual arts teacher for those 3 days of the week. I'm excited but also very overwhelmed right now. I have come a long way in terms of organization, but I'll admit I have a long way to go. I'm what you'd call the "organized chaos queen". (my apartment is a perfect example) I just want to have a neat and orderly looking room, and I also realize a lot of that has to do with how I plan things. I am not a slob by any means, and I am a clean person, I don't want to give the wrong impression. I have just heard many teachers say they want to be more organized. It does seem to be a tough thing. So, for those of you who have organization down to an art form, please help me and others who are still a work in progress. (well, I guess we all are in a way) Thank you!
