The goal of OrganizedTeaching.com is to provide organizational strategies and techniques that will assist you in providing the best instruction and assessment for your students with the least amount of time and effort. Good teaching is both an art and a science and requires a significant amount of research, planning, preparation, evaluation, and creativity, but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your personal and family life for education. You can do it all! In fact, you must have personal time in order to renew yourself and return to work stress free and ready for a new day, week, or year. If you spend all your free time working on "school stuff", you will be tired and irritable in class and your students will suffer. A rested, relaxed, and organized teacher is an effective teacher.
