New teachers are inundated with demands on their time. This edWebinar will provide practical tips for balancing the demands on your time before and after school and during planning. Learn how to organize time for easy communication with paraprofessionals, general educators, co-teachers, administrators, and parents. Learn what time wasters to avoid so that you can focus and prioritize what must be done when. Know when an investment of time upfront can save you time later and when a just-in-time approach may be OK. Attendees will walk away with solid ideas, including:
- Using technology to prompt timely conversations
- Using master schedules to avoid missing important deadlines
- Scheduling necessary conversations and your own planning time
- Self-evaluating and adjusting the plan as necessary
- Collecting materials and ideas that work so that you can begin planning for next year
- Remembering why you chose teaching in the first place
This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
