Every year many of us reflect on what we wanted to do that we hadn'tt accomplished. I didn't exercise to my fullest, I didn't organize the garage, I didn't learn a new skill..... How about a reflection of what we DID do? I try not to put to much on the "new year/new beginnings" ideal. I try to look at each day as a new day and take it day by day. Sure I've got goals and things I want, but sometimes I don't put a deadline on them. It's just too stressful! Last year I had a newborn, so my "goal" was to be the best mom/wife I could be. I'm pretty sure it worked. I found my groove. I figured out how to be those things plus more! Now, I'm not saying all was perfect and I did everything I wanted, but we are still breathing, we are still healthy, we are still standing and we are STILL SMILING!! :)
This year, my resolution for the new year is to do exactly what I did last year! (I'm also throwing in an extra goal of learning to crochet.) :)
Now, that was for my personal life, what about my TEACHER life? I've been reflecting on my teaching strategies and everything I've learned in the past year. I looked at what I may need to change and base my resolutions for this year on that. Really? I learn something new every day! So, this year and every
year day pushing forward my resolution or goal rather, is simply to BE THE BEST TEACHER I CAN! That's what it's all about right?
From my family to yours,
Happy New Year! What will you bring to 2012?
