Alright level with me here. Does your prep fly by in the blink of an eye and before you know it you have gotten zero checked off your to-do list but somehow been busy the entire time? Today we are talking about 3 tips for a more effective prep time and it is going to change the game for your productivity and effectiveness at school.
The reality is, we all have very limited time both during the work day and beyond. Learning how to best manage this means we can leave as much work as possible at school and save our home time for the things we love and that recharge us.
I am joined by Lauren from Parfaitement Bilingue: an expert in helping teachers save time and stress by creating effective systems and routines that truly work for them.
3 Tips for a More Effective Prep Time:
1) Don’t set out to simply do something during your prep. Instead, have a specific and realistic goal in place that you can actually quantify.
2) Plan for your prep. As uncomfortable as they may be at first, set aside a few minutes at the beginning of the week and map out everything you need to get done. Then, hold yourself accountable to this plan. Trust your past self!
3) Involve your students. The motto “never do something a student can do” comes into play here. Save yourself valuable minutes by enlisting the help of your littles to set yourself up for success.
