Classroom Organization coaching is one of my favorite things to do. I love the challenge of walking into a classroom, assessing what each teacher needs, getting a plan of action and then putting that plan into action.

I enjoyed working with these teachers, learning different ways they do things in their classrooms, and sharing my knowledge and skills with them (as well as those of you who followed along!).
But I didn’t want the goodness that we did in each of their classrooms to stay there.
I know these classrooms are not yours, but I know that you will see parts of your classrooms in each of these. Ideas you can take, adapt, and implement in your own classroom organization overhaul.
Below are the coaching sessions with each of the teachers I coached. Enjoy!
Classroom Organization Coaching
And before you start watching all the videos…I apologize in advance for the video quality. Mot of these videos are taken straight off of facebook (because I forgot to push “record” on the other software I was going to record on).
But, regardless of the quality of the video, I know you will find the content helpful as you figure out ways to organize areas in your classroom!
Small Group Area Organization- Casey Miller
Up first was my friend and coworker, Casey. I have spent quite a bit of time in Casey’s room and she was one of the first classroom makeovers I did! She is always so gracious to let me use her as a guinea pig for organization things I want to try. 😉
We talked about her small group teaching area and organizing her small group teaching materials.
Classroom Management Techniques- Emma Cramer
Emma is a first year teacher and started in her 6th grade classroom in the middle of the year. So needless to say, she has a lot on her plate.
I shared with her some thoughts from my First Year Teacher: Behavior Management Techniques blog I thought would be helpful.
Classroom without Cabinets Organization- Leslie Jacobs
My next guest on the Operation Organization session was Leslie who is a first year teacher stuck in the old PLC room of her school.
Lacking any type of cabinet storage, Leslie was desperate for ways to organize the ONE cabinet she was given. We made more of a mess than we started with…but at least she now has a plan! 🙂
Teacher Command Center + Cabinets- Brittany Cox
Brittany is a sweet, sweet first year teacher (with an awesome instagram) who is facing the same struggle I see SO many teachers face.
Cabinets that become the “black hole” of the classroom. When in a rush, we just shove things in our cabinet to get it out of the way and out of sight.
Today we map out a plan for Brittany to turn transform her teacher command center as well as what to do about the big cabinet she has in her classroom.
Small Group Teaching Area- Janell Puckett
Janell’s small group teaching area and u-table are frequently full of stuff- papers, markers, materials, etc. which makes pulling small groups extra difficult.
In this video we created a plan AND organized her small group area. Oh, and we laughed.. A LOT!
I’ve said it before and I am sure I will say it a million more times…but classrooms need organization and management routines in place for effective teaching to happen.
As teachers, we have toooooo much on our plates to waste time sifting through papers, drawers, and cabinets to find something.
Let me help you out with this free Classroom Makeover Goal Planning Guide. I’ll walk you through the same steps we implemented in each of these classroom videos.

Until next time,
