I am joining the party, Workin' On It Wednesday, provided by the lovely hostesses at Kinder Gals (which, by the way, was one of the very first blogs I fell in love with when I first discovered this oh-so-wonderful world of teacher blogs).
If I were to really explain to you EVERYTHING that I have been working on, you would fall asleep - seriously...boring stuff: Staff Routines and Procedures Manual, Staff Handbook, Family Handbook, schedules, parent letters, lists galore...you get the picture. I feel so privileged to be on a leadership team that is opening a new school, but let me tell you: It is a tremendous amount of work!!
So let me move on to something slightly more interesting. I found a great article from Edutopia this morning titled, "5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Non-Teaching Time" and it totally inspired me to create a plan for my non-teaching time, similar to what is described in the article. Here is what I came up with so far:
Are you able to read that? I know it is a small font (the font has to be small when you have a ba-zillion things to do and you have to squeeze it all, right!?) Do you have any suggestions on what I should add? Is there something obvious that I might be overlooking? I have been out of the homeroom for two years, so I would not be surprised. Obviously, there are going to be SO many other things that come up that I will have to deal with, but I wanted to stick to regularly occurring tasks on this plan.
By the way, I would be happy to share this document with you, if you would like it - though it is nothing fancy or special. Just leave your e-mail address in a comment and I will shoot it your way. As always, thanks for stopping by! :)
P.S. - If you are a Morning Meeting classroom, be sure to check back in the next few days as I will have an amazing freebie to share with you!
