002: 5 Ways to Get Organized in the New Year

ORGANIZATION!! If there is one thing that can save your sanity, it is implementing practical systems to keep you more organized in and out of the classroom. When you're more organized you have more time and energy to do the things you want to do and that mean the most to you. Which then makes you a better version of yourself for you AND  your students.⁣

I will be discussing 5 things to keep you organized that you can start doing RIGHT NOW!⁣

Let’s face it, staying organized can sometimes be a struggle, but if you have the right systems in place, then you can really set yourself up for success. I’ll be discussing everything from planners, technology, classroom jobs and even tips on how to make your mornings less stressful. ⁣

Are you ready to become more organized in the new year? I’m spilling all my secrets on how I stay organized right here!⁣

001: Welcome to the Show!

WELCOME to the Teach Create Motivate Podcast!  I’m Ashley Marquez, the face behind the teaching website and TPT store Teach Create Motivate. You may also recognize me from Instagram where I share all things teaching, everyday life and Amazon finds!


Starting a podcast for teachers like you.. and ME!.. has been a dream of mine for quite a while. Teaching is NOT easy! I firmly believe though that having the right strategies and tips can make ALL the difference.  I have so many ideas that are constantly circling through my head and it is a struggle to share them all with you. So, I thought a podcast would be the perfect place to share all things teaching and build a community to collaborate because TOGETHER WE ARE BETTER!!  

I plan on talking about topics ranging from morning meeting, classroom organization, small group, preventing burnout  and so much more! I will also be bringing on exciting guests to share things that they are passionate about and ideas you can also use in your classroom.

I’m so excited to see where this podcast goes and I CAN’T WAIT to go on this journey with you!

Happy Teaching!
