5 ways to kick off a non-traditional school year 

In the latest blog post on Proficiency Talks, Elena Spathis brings you five easy but mindful ways to build a community in your classroom, introduce yourself to your students, and more!

Why we love it? This quick read offers room to adapt ideas into what makes the most sense for you.


Declutter your mind, declutter your curriculum


Who needs Marie Kondo when you could have Jen Carson and Michelle Olah? Our decluttering duo used classroom experiences, research, and insights from teachers like you to create sanity restoration resources that you can read or view.

Relax and read : In a two-part blog, Michelle and Jen bring you a treasure-trove of ideas for simplifying, staying present, and prioritizing what's important.



Unwind with a webinar : Jen and Michelle recently walked through several scenarios that might require a little decluttering! Special thanks to educators Chris Hayes, Teacher (Upper Arlington) and Christi Gilliland, District Supervisor (Williamson County Schools) for lending their voices to the panel.
