You know I am all about simplifying your job as a school counselor and helping you to make the best use of your time. We can all benefit from more tips and tricks to maximizing our productivity in the little amount of time we have without students. That is why I am so excited to have efficiency and productivity expert, Khristen Massic joining me today!

Khristen Massic, M.Ed., loves efficiency and productivity as much as you love leaving school at your contracted time. (Okay, so those go hand-in-hand!) She is a teacher mentor, a 10-year high school engineering teacher, a former middle school assistant principal, and mom to 4 littles. Khristen helps multi-prep teachers with time-saving tools and strategies so you don't have to choose between being effective teachers and prioritizing important relationships.

Although Khristen has not been in the school counseling role, her experience as an administrator has helped her recognize how important it is to be super productive in the short breaks we have between students, especially when we could be interrupted at any moment. In this episode, she is sharing her top three productivity tips, what she suggests doing to make the most of small windows of open time, what we can do today to get more organized, and her recommendations for getting systems in place.
