Charity Preston, MA can also present a live webinar for your organization! Webinars are done completely online, using the platform you provide (gotowebinar, webex, etc.) and can be from 30-120 minutes long, including a Q and A segment. She can present on topics including, but not limited to, classroom organization, student led conferences, or differentiation. Feel free to CONTACT HER if there is a particular topic you would like her to present and she will discuss whether that would be a good fit. Speaking fees start at $750, and include the live presentation, slideshow, electronic copies of any handouts required, and up to one practice session. If additional work or materials is required, the fee will be discussed and agreed upon before the live presentation occurs and a copy of the work contract will be signed by both parties.
If you wish to have Charity present onsite for half day or full day workshops, please use the CONTACT FORM to discuss fees, which should include all travel and lodging expenses, as well as providing any hard copy handouts, and the speaking fee (which will depend upon length and depth of the presentation requested).
Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to working with you soon!
Classroom management is an exploding area of education. It covers a wide variety of things, including but not limited to behavior, organization, and efficient instruction. Marygrove’s Master in the Art of Teaching (MAT) program is teaming up with professional blogger and teacher Charity Preston for a helpful webinar on one specific area of classroom management: the basics of classroom organization.
Teachers are keenly aware that in addition to the demands of instruction, they accumulate heaps of paper that need to be dealt with every day. How well those papers are organized can cut up to two hours off of your work week, allowing you to spend that valuable time with your students.
Join MAT’s very special guest, Charity Preston, creator of The Organized Classroom Blog as she presents “Overcoming Organizing Obstacles” on Wednesday, February 15 at 4 p.m. She’ll show you how to organize three critical components of your classroom: papers, supplies, and fixtures. You’ll come away with organizational strategies and ideas you can use, right now, in this informative, jam-packed 30-minute session.
It is commonly held that poor planning with room arrangement can create conditions that lead to problems. The same is true with poor organization of materials, which takes undue time away from monitoring students. Keep in mind, good discipline is much more likely to occur if the classroom setting and activities are structured or arranged to enhance cooperative behavior; so make sure your students are able to help themselves to the tools they need.
All teachers know that commonly used classroom materials, e.g., books, attendance pads, absence cards, and student reference materials should be readily available. Preston likes to tell teachers, “Creating a more organized and efficient classroom is within your reach!” But the “how-to’s” are not always intuitive.
She makes it fun and easy. Don’t miss it.
