I am the first to admit that I am not a morning person.
It takes me a good while to be alert enough to function well and interact with other people in a socially acceptable manner. That made it tough to be an organized teacher.
I tried my best to make sure I was prepared each day. I made lists. I organized materials I needed to take to school the night before. I set alarms on my phone. But sometimes, despite all that, I left things at home that were needed at school that day.
So before I went to bed, I simply wrote myself a reminder on a sticky note and put it at eye level on the front door so I would see it when I left. Simple, easy, and it worked!
This method also works to help you remember to take things home from school or to complete a task in the office - I just put the reminder on my classroom door. You know, because my brain is fried after a long day with the kids working my teacher magic.
