Operation Organized Counselor

I've been scouring online for the PERFECT organized planner for my role this year as our 7th grade counselor...however, nothing is customized just for me. This weekend I have been working on creating one that is "just right". Here are a few items that I am planning on including:

  • Yearly calendar
  • Weekly planner (lesson plan like)
  • Contact log
  • Notes section (staff meeting notes, team meeting notes, & my notes)
  • Binder covers (some designed by others & some designed by me)
  • Title it... The Seemingly Organized School Counselor's Planner ...haha!
Intentions are to begin constructing it this week in a binder format...why you ask? Well, I contemplated taking it to Staples and having it bound, then realized that I tend to flip-switch-change-adjust constantly. With a binder I can move things around to see what suites my needs best. When I do find a system that works...then I will professionally bind it. Pictures to follow when it is completed, and I will post the documents I used if you want them or would like to customize them to meet your needs (free to use if they are created by me, otherwise I will post a picture that is linked to the original source.) My documents will ALWAYS be free to download...that's why we call it "sharing"! :-)

Here are some resources that were helpful with ideas and downloadable forms....
