Ending the Year Strong by Resetting Your Classroom [episode 22]


Click below to hear about resetting your classroom:

Believe it or not, the end of the school year is the perfect time for resetting your classroom! After a busy school year, chances are your classroom is a mess.

While it’s tempting to wait till the start of the new school year to take inventory and reorganize, your future self will thank you if you do it now. I know…I know…you’re ready to leave it all behind and start your summer break, but hear me out.

In today’s episode, we are continuing our series on how to end your year strong. In episode 20 and episode 21 I challenged you to reflect on your classroom management and lesson plans this past school year in order to end the year strong and set yourself up for success for next school year. 

Today we’ll take a mental break and focus on the physical space you teach in with the Classroom Reset Challenge. I’ll give you the step-by-step process you need to walk through every corner of your teaching space and storage areas so that when you return to your classroom next fall, you’ll be relieved rather than overwhelmed.

If you go through with resetting your classroom this year, send me a message on Instagram and let me know how it went!
