If you're anything like me, you've tried so many different teacher organization tools (at least twice).

There are so many to choose from…

Decorative paper planners

Digital planners

Lesson planbooks

Google Docs

I feel like I've tried them all and even experienced limited success, but I haven't found the one system that works for every day of every school year.

I think I've finally discovered why it's been so difficult to find the right teacher organization tool.

Things change from day to day in special education.

What works one day may not work at all the next.

Not to be deterred from finding the perfect teacher organization tool, I came up with a few idea.

These seemed to work very well in helping me stay on top of the many projects going on every week. I think one reason these tools were so helpful is because they remained fairly opened-ended. It was easy to pivot and make adjustments when things change (which they often will!).

Take a look…

LOVE this quote!

Teacher Organization Tool #2

I've really gotten into bullet journaling! The dot grid makes it easy to add all those doodle notes while still staying organized.

These pages come in two formats: with and without dates. This makes it very easy for Type-A organizers (like me) add extra pages or delete any pages that don't fit into our plans.

Which teacher tool will you try first?
