Find some peace of mind in knowing your classroom will stay organized by using these ideas for busy teachers!

Desk Organization:

Maintaining desk organization can be tricky when you’re constantly printing and grading assignments from your students. It can be easy to let papers and files pile up and get out of hand, making it harder for you to keep track of. With the Bostitch Office 3-Piece Konnect File Organizer, storing loose papers just got easier! You can even separate your papers based on classroom subjects!

Keeping your desk organized from loose monitor wires and pens and pencils can also be tricky for teachers but have no need to fear because desk organization is here! The 5-Piece Konnect Desktop Organizer and Cable Management Kit is here to help you and all your workspace needs. The 21.5" cord management rail mounts to the edge of your desk and hides messy, unsightly wires as it routes them through the back and sides. No more bundle of tangled wires. Plus, it securely docks all our Konnect™ desktop accessories, keeping them an arm's length away!

Classroom Storage Bins and Shelves:

Are you finding that your students are getting distracted throughout the day by searching through their coats and backpacks for their classroom essentials? Instead of another distraction, invest in a fabric door shoe organizer, where kids can place their school supplies by cubby. This way, they only need to get up when instructed to and can grab what they’re looking for without the hassle of searching through their bags! You can also invest in a shelving system, or DIY one with some cardboard boxes, that will allow kids to put their backpacks away and out of sight while in the classroom!

Technology Storage Solutions:

In the modern age of technology, more classrooms are beginning to go digital, allowing students to carry around iPads and school computers throughout the day. This can lead to distraction during the periods of class where technology isn’t needed. To ensure that computers, tablets and other electronic devices stay out of the way when they aren’t needed, think about investing in a wooden dish drying rack that will store computers and iPads in one place when not in use.
