Top 3 Things Teachers Can do to Have a Productive Week

Do you desperately want to stop feeling overwhelmed by your planning tasks and start feeling productive?

I've got you, teacher friend.

Here are 3 things you can do to set yourself up for a productive week in the world of elementary teaching:




Making time to declutter your workspace at the end of each day (or really just in general) will help you:

  • decrease mental fog
  • focus on the task you're working on (instead of the piles of paper on your desk... we've all been there)
  • feel prepared to start a new day




I'm sure you love a good chat with a teacher friend too, but when it comes to getting your prep tasks done, you have to protect your planning time!

How? By setting boundaries like shutting your door during prep time or putting your phone on do-not-disturb.


We talked about this more in depth in this post, but basically - having a plan for what you'll get done during each prep time is a game-changer when it comes to teacher productivity.

This will:

  • help you prioritize what matters
  • maximize your efficiency during an already limited prep time
  • make your to-do list feel more manageable
