20. Strategies for Balancing Your Busy Teacher Schedule

7 Habits of a Highly Effective Teacher

How can you fit everything into the school day? Time is the one thing ALL teachers battle, but we are here to help you make the most out of the hours in your teaching day.


Let’s talk about changing our “Time Mindset” and how less is often more with our 7 strategies:

  • Managing your expectations
  • Being flexible and open to making adjustments
  • Utilising small groups as a teaching method
  • Identifying events in the term to help with planning
  • Looking at your program as a wishlist instead of a must do list
  • Combining and integrating the curriculum
  • Remembering quality over quantity – less is more!


School life can be so busy – but is ‘busy’ best for the students in our classrooms? We hope these ideas help you slow down and worry less about fitting everything in!
