I have never been a teacher to use a planner. I've always used a monthly calendar. But this planner has completely converted me. I have everything I need in one place, from parent contact information, to daily "To-Do" lists, to student birthdays. It has done wonders for me this year. I have stayed super organized! Not to mention, I get compliments at every meeting. I've even convinced a few fellow teachers they need one. From someone who has never been excited about planners... I'm doing cartwheels over this one!
