Looks like we are all still here! The world did not end in 2012, which means you still need to file that large stack of papers on your desk. Maybe you need a bit of guidance to jump-start your new year’s resolution to be an organizational superstar in 2013? Maia Heyck Merlin, author of The Together Teacher provides helpful organizational tips that should help you find what you need in under 10 seconds!
Maia Heyck-Merlin (Brooklyn, NY) currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer for Achievement First, a high-performing charter school management organization in New York and Connecticut. In this capacity, she has worked with hundreds of new and experienced educators struggling to manage the daily deluge that accompanies work in schools. Prior to joining Achievement First, Maia spent five years on the staff of Teach For America in a number of leadership roles. During this time, she saw firsthand how many new educators drown in the volume of work they encounter upon entering the profession. As a former elementary school teacher herself (and as someone married to a middle school English teacher), Maia is uniquely qualified to train teachers on these critical, and often overlooked, self-management skills. In her free time, she likes to read, swim, dress her baby like a cat, and organize her husband.
