Almost nobody likes a deadline, but sometimes, deadlines are the only way something gets done.
In pondering the subject of this blog entry, I decided to use an example from my own studio – and hope the strategies and thought-processes I have used will be helpful to you. I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter.
Scheduling is a convoluted mess at best, and a nightmare at worst, but it does not always have to be that way. When juggling so many families, students, schedules, and conflicts, the teacher’s job is rarely (often never) just teaching.
How many times have you put off that deadline until last minute? Or, how many times have you assumed the teacher or organization would make an exception for you, because your situation is so unique? Many teachers spend hours coordinating the schedule and arranging time-frames so students are given the best possible scenario for their lessons.
