teacherwithADD - NYC

Hi I'm am from NYC and I have not been diagnosed but i am trying to find out more information about ADD. from what i have read I am pretty sure I do have it. I am having the worst time adjusting to be a new teacher, i never realized how much organized i needed to be to keep a classroom moving smoothly.

Hi teacher, the more I tried to get organized in the classroom the more piles of paper I had, and the more I became disorganized. Finally got diagnoised with add
this past February and on Adderall twice a day! Try getting a big notebook with separation tabs, and have one tab for each subject you teach. My notebook is like this: Section 1 Science in classroom material needed for the day or week.
Section 2 Science Homework
and so
I also have a section for what needs to be copied and one for memos from the principal/memos. This has helped me out in trying to be organized.
Good Luck
