New School Year's Resolutions

Come August, it begins to look at lot like back-to-school. In fact, if your school is like mine, you’ve already started!

The new school year gives kids and teachers alike the opportunity to set goals for the coming year. In many ways, this is the same as a New Year’s resolution. So, today I want to challenge you to consider your New School Year’s resolution.

What will you commit to doing this school year that you haven’t done before? Do you have new priorities to bring to your pedagogy? Maybe you spent the summer in professional development sessions which instilled in you new ideas for lesson delivery?

One of my resolutions is to lessen the amount of paper I use by integrating more technology into my instruction and my planning. Already this resolution is forcing me to be more creative and to change the systems and procedures I have relied on in the past. I get tremendous joy out of the constant and evolving challenge that is teaching so, this is right up my alley.

What will you resolve to do this school year??
