Teacher and Life Planner: Tips for Effective Use

My teacher/ life planner is my single most important tool for maintaining my sanity as a mother, music teacher, and teacher-author. I designed my "perfect for me", all-in-one planner 5 years ago, and I've been refining my system and streamlining my organization ever since. Along the way I've shared my favorite tips for using planners on this blog, and I think it's high time I compiled those tips into one place!

Below you'll find all of my favorite posts on tips and strategies for using your planner for everything from lesson planning to home life organization (and everything in between). Click on the pictures to read the full posts- happy planning!
