So, I think at this point, it’s obvious that I love Erin Condren Planners. You can just search Erin Condren on my blog and find so many posts about my mini-obsession.
Last year, if you remember, I used an Erin Condren Teacher Planner for this school year, which worked pretty well. If there wasn’t confidential information in there, I would show you, but I don’t want to put any info out there that shouldn’t be. But, it did work really well, but there were some things that I maybe didn’t use as much as I thought I would; some sections were kind of pointless and went unused, etc.
Erin Condren came out with the hourly version at the start of 2016 and as this school year has gone by, I thought that an Hourly layout, might actually be a better alternative to the Teacher Planner. Especially with my semi-new role in the department, I’m going to have a lot more meetings and be a bit more time-crunched, it seems like laying my day out by hours might keep me the most organized.
The irony of this though, is that I’m actually going to be teaching Seminar classes next year. I do them every year, but next year I will be doing them throughout the whole year as opposed to just a marking period like I did this year and last. So, a lesson planner might be logical…but…..I have another system for that this coming year. So it’s not that big of a deal to me.
