It seems a teacher’s work is never done. There are many demands a teacher must meet, from teaching students, grading papers to maintaining a clean room. Meeting your goals for a clean and safe learning experience can be made easy if you follow these guidelines. Here are four basic cleaning steps that will help you create a clean and attractive class environment. These services should be performed at the beginning of the year, during winter and spring break, and at the end of the year in order to maintain a clean learning environment.
De-clutter and Organize
The first step to getting your class clean is creating an organized room and removing the clutter. There are many simple and effective ways to organize your class papers and materials, most of which are cost effective. Once you have found the system that works best for you, stick to it. Be sure to empty and discard all trash or unwanted materials such as outdated paper as well as broken items like crayons and pencils. This step is very important in cleaning your classroom as it makes cleaning the classroom easier.
Dust your Room
Next dust your room. Start at the top and work your way to the bottom. When dusting, be sure to include items such as vents, black and white boards, all shelves and cabinets, windows and door frames, as well as anything hanging on the walls such as mirrors, plaques, pictures or coat racks.
Deep Clean from Top to Bottom
After you dust, bring out the cleaners and washes. In classrooms, it may be preferred to use homemade cleaners or other natural products. If you choose harsher cleaning materials make sure your room is well ventilated. Wash walls, cabinets, shelves, counter tops, students’ tables, teacher’s desk, and chairs. If you have a sink in your classroom don’t forget to clean it and make sure that it isn’t clogged.
Finish with the Floor
Once you have completed the dusting process, vacuum the floor to clear out all remnants of dust and dirt. Sweep and mop areas of tile. Also move and shake out any rugs if you have them in your class.
Throughout the year it is very effective to have a weekly and daily cleaning schedule. This will keep your class germ-free and help reduce the chances of spreading any illnesses that may enter the room. Here is a check list for daily cleaning services in your Jacksonville classroom. You can even enlist the help of your students; this will not only help make cleaning easier for you but also teach students to be helpful, respectful of property, and share the importance of maintaining clean habits.
