  1. Keep yourself on track with a custom Teacher Organization Binder that holds all your grades, calendars and student information. Make a tab for important information like schedules, class list, transportation details and anything else that may come in handy for yourself or a substitute teacher. A Student Data tab helps you keep track of student’s contact info and parent/teacher conference times. You can also create tabs for Staff Meeting Notes, Lesson Plan Ideas and Testing Calendar.
