Here we are in JUNE! Can you believe it?! After an incredible year of hard work, building relationships, and pouring into the success of your students–that summer breather is coming.
If you’re anything like me, you take the first week or two to soak it all in, kick up your feet, and relax. But then, the excitement for the next school year starts to brew and before long I am already nose deep in some ideas that I can’t wait to try!
This past school year I had more meetings than I was used to. Perhaps it was the fact that they were in person (why does it take so much more time to have a meeting in the building in person than in my room on the computer?!). Anyways, I found myself struggling to sort it all out and keep track of it all. From report card dates to intervention meetings to staff meetings to conferences to IEPs and sooooo much more– It was a lot! On top of that, as grade chair, I needed something that would be beneficial for my entire team!
I began digging into ideas for keeping it all straight.
It needed to be a place that I could see it regularly, it needed enough space for all of the things I needed to remember, it needed to be easily accessible for my team, and it needed to be something I could edit if things changed. It had to be something that my team could utilize and something that would fit every organizational style.
Enter…my new favorite calendar!
This digital and printable Floral Teacher Planner is PERFECT! As a team, all of our meeting dates and important team events are recorded on here and everyone can add to it at any time. I also make a copy and use one for my personal classroom because there are always a million dates that I need to know there too!! I save it as a PDF and print it out and hang it on my wall so I can quickly write down new IEP meetings or other events that come up throughout the year. It’s digital, printable, and editable…I mean…what more can you ask for??
If we are in a meeting, we can easily access it digitally and we are never slowed down to run back to our rooms and grab a planner! The digital/printable nature of this calendar really is the best fit for our team and I can’t wait to share it with you too!!
So soak in these last days with your students, take that needed break for yourself, but before you do…download this calendar and save it away for fall!!! Pro tip…if you get so excited to use it early…only add things like a trip to the spa to your calendar; you’ll be glad you did!
