Create Direction Experts to Stop Repeating Yourself

One of my biggest pet peeves as a teacher is repeating directions shortly after giving them. I knew I needed to come up with a solution to save my voice and my sanity when it came to making sure all my students knew what they were supposed to be doing. I decided the easiest solution was to implement a new job in the art room called, “The Direction Experts.”

If you’re tired of repeating yourself you might want to add this new leadership job to your classroom, too. For an in-depth explanation, make sure to check out the video!
