I’ve had a bit of a podcast hiatus. Not for any real reason other than being behind and not getting my act together. Oops! I missed y’all. But I am glad to be back this month and I am even more glad that I am getting to share my conversation with Kristina Grant with you today!
Kristina and I recorded this podcast back over my Spring Break, in the beginning of March. And I have been hanging on to this episode because I wanted it to be released during the month of Classroom Organization!!! Because that is what we talk about in today’s episode- my most favorite thing to talk about!
Kristina is currently a creator and developer of curriculum for grades K-4 and she travels the country presenting on Classroom Management, Social Emotional Learning, and Guided Math. Basically..she has my dream job! Kristina and I are both former Fellows, which I have mentioned on the podcast a time or two :).
Today we share our organization, decoration, and management thoughts. She also shares her acronym “COACH” and how we can apply that to classroom management techniques. We chat about the dreaded word….time! We all need more of it, but unfortunately we can’t do anything about it. All we can do is effectively manage our time so that we can get the most out of the limited time we have with our kiddos and at school.
Of course, we wrap up talking about Kristina’s biggest pet peeve in teaching (the excuse of not having enough time) what is keeping her sane right now (eating healthy, working out, counting calories), and her favorite kid moment (the time she bought a new curling wand, did her hair, and was so excited about it only to be truth bombed by one of her first graders…hey, we’ve all been there!).
I’d love for you to have a listen HERE! And I would especially love it if you shared it with your teacher friends!!!
