Who CLEANS your CLASSROOM?

Keeping IT  Clean!

So..WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

 SCHOOL PERSON 

YOU NEED TO KNOW?

( OK...AFTER  the Secretary!)


THE   JANITOR! 
This is the person who can help make your life easier...
 moving desks, tables, etc, etc..AND  

KEEPING YOUR CLASSROOM
DUST FREE
BUG & MAMMAL FREE

and

GERM FREE!
( LOTS of GERMS on tables, floors, deks, etc..etc )

These little "creatures" can make kids stay home, 
can RUIN the best lesson
  if no one is there..the lesson has to be done AGAIN..
or the absolute worst...

THEY CAN MAKE THE TEACHER SICK!

SUB PLANS???  
 NOOOOOO!!!!!!

So...Let's worktogether to keep our classroom CLEAN!

So here is MY THEORY..
Our janitor only has "X" amount of minutes to clean MY room!

I want him to spend the MAXIMUM amount of time 
cleaning the stuff 
my students & I  cannot!

TEAMWORK!

So..I have 2 helpers each day who are the 

CLEAN UP  CREW
(This sample is available for FREE..click HERE!)




Their job..
 while the rest of us
 are at the carpet listening to
 AUTHOR'S  CHAIR

is to stack ALL chairs into stacks of 6,
to pick up ANYTHING on the floor -under tables & desks,
AND 
to use the push carpet sweeper to clean the floor!

THEN.....EVERY FRIDAY we
DE-GERM our classroom!

We take papertowels & SANITIZER
YES...SANITIZER


My district NOW requires us to be
"certified" in 
HOW TO USE CLOROX WIPES..
I know...

So we use DISTRICT PROVIDED
SANITIZER to clean with!

And wipe ALL surfaces!
I MEAN ALL!
Tables, desks, student whiteboards, chairs, pencils
 ( I know... "germy fingers" )
THE DOOR, pencil sharpeners...EVERYTHING!

WHY???

Because...I want my students to

TAKE  RESPONSIBILITY 
 for  their  
ENVIRONMENT!



You "live here' ...YOU  'clean it!"

THEY  LOVE  IT!

Then..after we leave..
the janitor can spend his time
 doing DEEP cleaning...
whiteboards, dusting, windows, windowblinds...
stuff I can't get to & the kids cannot either!

Monday Morning....CLEAN CLASSROOM!

( I LOVE to start the week with a clean classroom!)

So...make friends with your janitor.
Keep your classroom CLEAN.
Get your kids involved!

After all...RULE # 5....KEEP YOUR TEACHER  HAPPY!
