Today, I thought I’d share some pictures of my “lesson binder” that I use for keeping my teaching records/materials organized. My current system is designed to be uber portable because I currently teach all my lessons on campus in a practice room. When it’s time to teach, I grab my lesson binder from my office before greeting my student!

In the front of my binder, I keep a clear plastic pouch well-stocked with plenty of stickers to choose from. My students put a sticker on each piece of music they “pass” and each theory worksheet page they complete. I also keep some spare supplemental worksheets, business cards, and a notepad in the pocket on the left.
After those dividers, I have alphabet dividers where I file papers all related to my students (filed by first name), such as the filled-in forms mentioned above. I also keep each student’s index card with his/her stickers for the incentive program filed here.
Now it’s your turn – what is your method of organization / record keeping? Share your tips in the comments!
