Description: Take a few minutes to sit back and think about how you want to plan out your classroom this school year. Want some great ideas for getting everything organized? Join us as we discuss ways to keep teacher tools, classroom decoratives, student work and more neat and easy to find. We'll also discuss ways to make a general plan for the year and how to stay ahead of the game to keep from doing things at the last minute. Each attendee will also leave with a binder to help organize all of those papers that find their way onto your desk throughout the school year.
