One of the best things about being a teacher is that you get two new year’s each year. Two chances to start over; to set goals; to feel refreshed.
In September my goals are usually school related. Keep my classroom neat, keep up with my lesson plans, be a better teacher. Sometimes they include eating better, walking more, laying my clothes out the night before.
In January my goals are more personal. Lose weight, watch less TV, declutter my house, eat better. I also include school related goals, keep up with the planning, be more creative in the classroom, get stuff done.
I am lucky. I get to start all over every few months. It is such a blessing.
I start school today. Happy New Year!
