New {School} Year Resolutions

The very best thing about being a teacher is that we get PLENTY of opportunities for fresh starts. As we all know, when you make your resolutions public and permanent, you are more likely to stick to them. Right? 

Resolution #1: Keep up my new blog! After spending the first two years of my teaching career following and borrowing ideas from countless blogs, I have decided it is my turn to contribute to the resources on the web. I want to share what I create for my classroom with all of you!

Resolution #2: Be flexible! This is a year with lots of changes for both myself and my school district: new school, new curriculum. I am so excited for a great year and want to remember to take all the changes in stride.

Resolution #3: Stay organized! I have been working hard in my room to make sure that there is a place for everything. I want to be able to spend all my energy making 2nd grade a great year for my kiddos and none of it looking for lost papers! (Can you tell I have experience with that?)

Resolution #4: Work smarter! I am (somewhat of) a perfectionist and this may be my hardest resolution of them all. I am hoping that being organized and flexible will help with this, as well as my newest adventure, the Daily Five. 

Happy New Year!
