Classroom Clutter & Time Management Tips

Here is a sample of the what you’ll learn after reading The Uncluttered Teacher.


How to Finally Let Go

Weeding Through Your Belongings

Ask yourself these questions when going through your items.

  •  Is this out of date? No longer of importance? Most recent copy?
  •  Do I have time to read/do something with this? How long have I told myself I would do something with it?
  •  Is there another resource if I get rid of this and need to revisit it later?
  •  What is the worst thing that would happen if I tossed it?
  •  Am I keeping it because I spent a lot of money on it? Am I getting any value out of it having it unused?


Streamlining Your Day

Cutting Back on Responsibilities

Use these self-reflection questions to help you analyze how you spend your time.

  • Do you feel guilty if you don’t help out?
  • Do you have a need to be a part of everything that is going on?
  • What would happen if you weren’t in charge of an event?
  • How often do you really need to check emails?
  • What tasks can you delegate to students and other colleagues?
