Hey Teacher Friend!
Tired of being busy and overwhelmed all the time?
I’m Kelly and I help busy and overwhelmed teachers (that’s you!) create organized classrooms! Once your organization systems and routines are in place then you can focus on what really matters- educating your students.
Teaching is hard work, there is no doubt about that! You are busy, overworked, and underpaid. I know this because I have been in your shoes.
How in the world are you supposed to find time to get your classroom organized when you have papers to grade, lessons to write, emails to send, and meetings to attend?
Welcome to The Simply Organized Teacher. I am so glad you are here. This is my space to share my thoughts, ideas, and knowledge I have gained as a classroom teacher. Each week I share practical advice, helpful strategies, and important routines to help teachers setup organized classrooms.
Classroom Organization is more than just a pretty classroom that is Instagram or Pinterest worthy. It is your flow, routines, and management all seamlessly blended together.
“I can’t thank Kelly enough for taking the time to speak with me in our coaching session and for also sending me thorough notes and pictures from our talk! I truly walked away from our conversation feeling more settled as I begin my first year of teaching.”

A little BTS about me!
That’s “Behind The Scenes” in case you weren’t sure.
My youngest memories involve me playing school in my classroom with my stuffed animal students. Teaching has been a dream of mine since I can remember. In 2012 graduated from Texas State. Go Bobcats! I went on to complete my Masters the following year.
Six years under my belt of loving, leading, and teaching my kiddos! The difference between today and Day 1 is the passion I have gained to encourage and support classroom teachers on their quest to be the best teachers they can be.
Currently my husband, our two pups, and I live in Regensburg, Germany for his career. I get the lucky privilege of helping teachers across the globe create routines and structures in their classrooms so they can spend more time educating their kiddos and less time looking for that piece of paper they can’t find…
A few things I love: coffee in the morning, margs in the evening ;), The Office (although Schitt’s Creek is a close rival), reading all the books I can get my hands on, listening (and obsessively telling everyone I know) to podcasts. Oh, and chips and queso (forever a Texas gal!)

Thank you so much for your amazing resources!! I am a first year teacher and have always struggled with staying organized and focused. When you mentioned how some teachers wander around the classroom at the end of the day, that’s me, my mind goes blank! After hearing that, I felt so reassured that there was hope for me, too.
I really appreciate all your support and how you were able to simplify such an overwhelming and stressful issue for me. I am still a little stressed, everything did not change over night, but I have made so much progress already!
