TIME MANAGEMENT & ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS


Time management is a common problem for any student.  Students now-a-days are faced with many responsibilities that extend passed that of the school day.  Many students are involved in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, clubs, organizations, and community groups.  Many students now serve as caregivers for younger siblings or family members, and many work while attending school.  All of these responsibilities inevitably lead to difficulty with time management.  

Do not fret...there is help!  It takes practice and a lot of trial and error to establish a plan of action that works smoothly and allows for you to feel successful in juggling all of life's many responsibilities.
