As an Enneagram 3, summer can be a weird time since I don’t sit still well. I need to keep working. Though I’m getting better at relaxing, I do have some important things on my summer to-do list.
First, instead of teaching in a self contained 2nd grade classroom, next year I’ll be teaching 3rd grade math and science. While this is will be great for planning purposes during the year, I have a lot of prep work to do this summer. Several of my workflows will need to change due to the decreased amount of subjects and increased number of students I’m teaching. I’ll also be teaching different material for the first time in my teaching career.
Here are the systems I’m going to be looking at over the summer:
- Note taking
- Parent Communication
- Lesson Planning
- Managing Student Data
- Paperless Workflow
- Task Management
As I spend time with each of these areas, I’ll be sharing here on the blog what my plan will be for the fall. Hopefully my plans will be useful for you as your prepare for a new school year.
