A native of Florida, Molly Schaaf has taught middle school English for 37 years. She is a graduate of the University of South Florida with degrees in English Education and Behavior Disorders/Special Education. For years she struggled with the masses of paperwork and materials with which every teacher has to cope. Finding that most books and articles on organizing dealt with either home or business issues, she developed her own system addressing the unique needs of classroom teachers. She has presented professional development programs in her school district helping other teachers organize their time and resources.
