Classroom Organization Made Easy


Think about your classroom and answer this question: Wouldn’t it be nice to have the opportunity to work from a blank slate? 


This may surprise some of you educators who feel you are destined to live out your teaching careers doing important work in a cluttered, messy, disorganized classroom, but EVERY teacher can be organized. 

Let me say that again…Each and every teacher can be efficient, happy and enjoy teaching in a beautiful, clutter-free, organized classroom. It just takes planning and an investment of time that I promise you’ll find to be worth it. This blog post will list exactly what you need to plan for when decluttering a classroom.

Do you often…
  • A) Stay later than you would like each day?
  • B) Walk into school and instantly feeling defeated by the site of your disorganized classroom?
  • C) Feel frustrated or embarrassed by the condition of your classroom? 
  • D) Not enjoying the time with your students as much as you should?
You certainly are not alone. Teachers continuously tell me they are feeling overwhelmed more than ever before. Changes in policy and increased demands certainly are factors but frequently a cluttered classroom is also contributing to stressful days.

  • Does starting fresh with less clutter sound appealing?
  • Would you like save time and be more efficient in the classroom?
  • Do you want to enjoy your nights and weekends doing what interests you?

If you have been teaching awhile, or have taken over a classroom and inherited another teacher's belongings, it may not feel like having a clutter-free classroom is possible. 

I promise you it is.

You can successfully transform your classroom into an organized learning environment. 

With a systematic systematic plan you WILL accomplish this very manageable goal and feel accomplished, excited, and proud throughout the process instead of overwhelmed.

I’ve been running workshops, presenting at conferences and consulting with teachers 1:1 for over a decade (you can read about that here) on the topics of Classroom Organization and Management. When working with teachers to get their classrooms decluttered and organized I always advice them to work through the following ten systematic steps. 

1. Take before pictures. 
2. Create an action plan. 
3. Enlist the help of others. 
4. Know where your clutter will go. 
5. Gather supplies. 
6. Make a clean sweep. 
7. Schedule time to work on the space. 
8. Work through the decluttering process. 
9. Organize the items that remain. 

10. Create systems to maintain your new clutter-free classroom.



I'm excited to share that each of those steps are explained in lots of detail and with photos, examples and printable tools to make the process super simple in my recently updated eBook, A Clutter-Free Guide to Classroom Organization. The guide also now comes with lots of printables to help you get and stay organized.
