This year I have had an amazing summer and spent some time really working on organization in my room (as I didn't have time to do this last year). I have vowed that this will be the BEST YEAR EVER!
On my Instagram page yesterday, I asked my followers what they planned to do to make this the best year ever. I wanted to share with you some of the things they said:
- Be organized
- Consistency in classroom management
- Stay positive
- Work with my team
- Relationships (with students, other teachers, blogging friends, etc.)
- Less stress
- Focus on the students and not on all the other "stuff" that goes with teaching
- Create a classroom community
I really loved the list and it made me think about how I plan to make this my best year ever. Here is what I am planning on doing:
I am going to introduce alternative seating which I am so excited about. I am excited about school and ready to try some new things like STEAM. I plan to keep a positive attitude all year long and keep myself organized. I am beyond excited to use ESGI to help me save time on my assessments. I am going to continue to collaborate with my PLC and build strong relationships with my students. Most of all, I want to engage my students in fun, rigorous lessons. We love to have fun in my classroom and we love to LAUGH! Isn't laughter the best medicine?
I would love to hear how you plan to make this the best year ever. Sound off in the comments below!
