Last year, I struggled with keeping all of my files and teaching resources organized. I had been keeping everything in hanging file folders by subject and then had them sub-dived within the hanging folders by topic/chapter. This system didn't allow me to find what I wanted or even to know what I had. Two days ago, I decided I would take all of my files and place them in binders using plastic sleeves. I thought this would allow me to see what I had and discard what I never used. I was on a roll at first, but am now feeling very overwhelmed (which is what I was trying to avoid). So far I have a binders for each subject, one for teacher resources, and one for monthly projects. However, I still feel like I need to organize within the binders (if that makes any sense). Obviously, I am hoping to get my organization system in place before the school year begins, but at this point I feel like just putting everything back into my files. I know this frustration has been posted before, but I would greatly appreciate any input that you may have (considering I am stuck in the middle of the project). Do you prefer binders or folders? If you use binders how do you have them organized? Thank you in advance!
