My Car AKA My Office
Early morning in the parking lot of my Thursday school--what do I need to bring in with me from my 4-wheeled "office?"
The 3-ring folder for the school, files of students who are being evaluated, my work calendar and lunch cooler, of course!
Once a week I work with a student whose dad meets us at school to observe the sessions. To keep things straight I made up an "ingredient list" of the items I need for those sessions, since I'm usually rushing to her school from another school.
One other day of the week I meet a student who is not on my caseload for tutoring at a public library. I've made a little kit for these sessions and another "ingredient list" to keep me straight. When I'm in a rush and trying to find something in my stash, I sometimes borrow items from one bag and forget to replace them. My ingredient list helps me remember to replace everything so I don't have to wing it during a session because I've forgotten to bring in an item I need.
This is my little tutoring kit. Yes, yes--I know that "tutor" isn't spelled "2-door."
A little ancient history question--does anyone aside from me know what carbon paper is for?
