Tip of the Day for 09/03/2014

I keep track of every minute of my day. For instance, maybe I spent two hours teaching classes, 1 hour processing new books, 15 minutes at recess duty, 1 hour planning my author visit, 45 minutes creating a bulletin board. At the end of the week I add all the minutes up, and every month I create a report detailing how much time I spent teaching, administrative duties, student support services, teacher support, volunteers, promotions, etc. Then I have a document available for administrators to see how my time is spent.

    How about sharing how you actually get the diary done. And how do you handle questions from staff etc. Thank you

    Great idea. I don’t think others realize how we spend our time. I think I’ll do the same.

    I do the work of the librarian and the clerk with only 2 days to get it done. It often feels like treading water. It might be nice, if only for myself, to document accomplishments.
