3 jobs, 2 darling children (One that is graduating from high school a year early today!), 1 incredibly handsome and well behaved golden retriever, 1 sassy, big boned kitty, and 3 ornery, yet eggcellently generous chickens = complete and total brain overload.
Organization is a necessity in my life.
I am one of those people that has a planner in my purse, at work, and at home. I know, I know, I should really just use my smart phone. However, I am also one of those people that as much as I LOVE technology I need a hard copy AND I need to write things down in order to remember them.
My priority for organization at this moment has been organizing my online teaching life. I wake early every day at 5:00 a.m. and teach English to children in China via an awesome company named VIPKID. Click on the photo below for more information about VIPKID. They are the most darling kiddos! I teach the same students every week and I even teach some of their siblings and best friends. I usually teach about 3 classes every day before I head off to my 5th grade classroom. I give myself about 45 minutes afterward to frantically get myself and my kindergartener ready and presentable for school. Needless to say, chaos generally ensues.
This is where my preferred method of organization for my early morning online teaching comes in.
