Clothes Line

My advice for new teachers takes place outside of the classroom. Yes, setting up classroom procedures and making parent contact frequently is important, but how you prepare for your week can be just as important. One thing that I do to make my week smoother is prepare my clothes for the entire week.  There have been weeks where I do not prepare my clothes and end up rushing in the morning ironing...not fun!  I love being able to just relax in the evening knowing that everything is prepared for the days ahead.  Plus I am pretty sure I look more put together when I prepare ahead of time...well at least I think so.
I typically fling clothes on the bed and then iron down the line. This process of selecting and ironing usually takes an hour to complete everything...not too bad.
On each hanger I hang a small jewelry bag that I have collected from American Eagle. Each bag contains that outfits jewelry for the day.
 Here is an example of a days jewelry...black bow bracelet and pearl lace bow earrings.
 I have become dependent on wearing a watch if I do not you will find me with a timer clipped to my shirt...not fashionable.
