Over the last few weeks, we've been talking about the updated Education Friday Workbox®. Catch up on this whole series by listening to these episodes:
This week, I'm talking with Michele Vinje. She's been an educator for over 28 years in the same school and the same building for her entire career. She has taught various history and economics courses to sophomores, juniors, and seniors over the years.
You can hear more of Michele's personal story in her transformation episode. Michele is also a certified organizer. You can find out more about working with her here.
In this episode, Michele and I discuss how the education system has changed since the pandemic. We talk about how the Education Friday Workbox® is a place to hold all of those administrative tasks that are important but not urgent so you can get to them once a week and before something is due. Michelle describes how the Education Friday Workbox® frees up your brain and that it is a system that is inclusive for all educators and administrators but customizable for anyone in the education world. And don't forget about the colors! The colored Slash pockets make it easy to find a category of information quickly.
Note: I mistakenly said 25% of all people in the teaching profession will be leaving in the next two years. The actual statistic from the NEA is that 55% will be leaving and that's up from 37% last August. This article from a military veteran explains the situation further.
