Organizing Files

I’ve been putting far too much thought into how to stay organized while keeping everything as simple as possible. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

  1. computer hard-drive
    1. everything goes here, organized into files like normal
    2. calendar is also kept here – one calendar for what’s being taught each day/week/month as well as meeting schedules, holidays, etc.
    3. back everything up periodically by saving a printed copy of everything or saving to external hard-drive
  2. google docs
    1. for files that I need to work on at home and at school, such as lesson plans and worksheets
    2. the final copy can be saved as a word document on the computer hard drive
  3. binder
    1. use dividers to organize notes for:
      1. house meetings
      2. PLC meetings
      3. all staff meetings
      4. evaluations
    2. keep filler paper in the front to take notes on and file when meetings are done
    3. archive binder notes by putting the binder on a shelf. bam. done. archived.
  4. file cabinets
    1. keep student work here
    2. also for extra copies of worksheets to use in future years
    3. student portfolios
    4. various resources that are given to you as hard copies
