What do teachers do over break? Clean!

This morning, I came across a post on edutopia.com that had a recommended reading list-5 Eclectic Book Recommendations.  I didn’t get past the first book listed. I have ordered The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo and look forward to being inspired to get rid of things even though I know that all I need to do is pick something up and put in a pile that is either for donation, keeping, or throwing out. Maybe I’ll be inspired to get rid of things that I don’t really NEED or that as Kondo says don’t give me joy.

 

Guess I know what I am going to be doing the rest of winter break. Who knows? Maybe, I will learn some things that I can apply in my classroom, too.

Here is a link to an article, too.
