Back to school can be a hectic time, especially for teachers! Closing the Summer chapter and preparing for a new year ahead of lesson plans, parent teacher conferences, classroom decorations and more – the to-do list seems to go on and on. When it comes to getting organized and checking some of these things off your list, your local business center can come in handy. Besides office rentals, they most likely offer administrative and other support services that will save you time and money heading into the new school year. Here are some ways local teachers and educational staff can utilize our Seattle area support services:
Allow our staff to help with your mass printing needs for things like your class syllabi, list of supplies that your students will need, homework assignments, book lists, tests and quizzes, nametags for your students and more!
Introduce yourself to the parents/guardians of the students in your class with a friendly card to kick off the year right.
Slideshows or digital presentations can be a fun and unique way to set yourself and your class apart either when introducing yourself at the beginning of the year, or showcasing your student’s work/activities at the end of the year for parents to see.
Get creative in how you can use technology to enhance the educational lives of your students. If your class has a pen pal program set up with another classroom somewhere else in the country (or even internationally), video conferencing is a great way to allow the students to “meet” and finally connect after their pen pal communications. Video conferencing may also be something to consider for parents who may be traveling or unable to attend parent-teacher conferences of other important meetings.
Let Executive Support Center help you get organized this school year, and get creative in the ways that you can connect with parents, and offer interactive opportunities to your students. Contact us for more ideas!
