How do you manage your time?
I work like a crazy person.  Just ask my husband.  I am not good at sitting still and just relaxing.  I do try to just my time as efficiently as possible.  I work all summer long on school things, so that when school starts, I’m as organized and prepared as possible.  When I’m at school, I try to use my time wisely.  I love to chat with my friends, but if I’m talking I’m still going to be working on something.  I also try to keep everything I do purposeful and simple.  It’s so easy for me to get caught up in little things that won’t make a significant difference for my students, but I’m learning that it’s not realistic to expect myself to do everything that I see on Pinterest.

Another one of my most important rules for myself is to NOT work on TpT over spending time with my family.  I try to utilize bedtime and nap time for my TpT and blogging work. Here’s a pic of me working on vacation!

How do you plan for the year?

This is easier answered in a blog post. You can read about that here.

What homework do you give?
I don’t like giving a lot of homework, but I do give a little.  It’s pretty much expected from my students’ parents, and I like my my students’ parents to see their child at work.  I give a spiral language review worksheet, and a spiral math review worksheet each week.
