Why is an organized classroom important? Does it impact my ability to teach or my students’ ability to learn?  I am here to tell you that there are tons of benefits of having an organized clutter-free classroom and YES it does impact your students’ learning.  Here’s the thing… Some teachers are perceived as hoarders, but often times it’s not their fault.  We are often required to house decades old curriculum and teaching resources in our classrooms even though there is a thick coating of dust on them and zero expectation to be using them.  Yet, we still need to keep them stored in our classrooms.  On top of that, some teachers have been teaching 20+ years and have collected so much stuff.  Or a retired teacher leaves everything to a new teacher, who then has decades of materials that are both a blessing and a curse.  No matter where you are in your teaching journey, it’s likely that you have quite a bit of decluttering to do. This clutter isn’t good for you and it’s definitely not good for your kids.  Read below to learn more about why it’s important to declutter and purge your classroom.
