Overview

Less Stress for Teachers: More Time & An Organized Classroom addresses the thinking behind how to overcome "the overwhelm" that teachers feel on a daily basis. Teachers are bombarded with hundreds of tasks and decision-making situations per day, but they are often not given the tools to cope with all of that. This book will guide educators to a more efficient mindset, which will allow them to make better use of time-saving tools and concentrate on the joy of teaching and, more importantly, be happier. You will learn: *The 5 most critical areas to control *To create time where you thought it was impossible *To manage email, paperwork, lesson plans and other tasks *To set up your classroom in the most efficient way *To lower your stress level during the school day Many education books are either research-oriented or a compilation of checklists or a combination of the two. This book is not. Instead, it’s a thinking pathway that helps teachers bust through the emotional, psychological and organizational walls that prevent them from utilizing planners and other tools. It’s two decades’ worth of lessons, experiences and anecdotes organized into an easy-to-read book that will make readers laugh, cry, squirm, and ultimately re-evaluate who they are and how they are approaching their school days.

    Highly recommended!!

    When I was a member of the "Clutter diet" I would frequently get help from Helene. Having been a teacher herself, she offers advice that saves time and energy both short and long term. I recognize the advice about using a beltpack or apron for most needed supplies such as pens because I'm pretty she gave it to me when I was a member of clutter diet. I still use a modified beltpack during my teaching so I am never without the tools I most need i.e. pens, scissors, notepad, sticky notes, and bandaids. I bought the book because for a long time now, I have realized that eventhough I am a lot more organized than I once was, I continue to struggle with time management. After an increase in class size from 20 to 32 students (1st graders) I needed all the help I could get. The advice offered in this book is straightforward and practical. It can be implemented at any point in the school year. Happy reading!
