Near the beginning of the summer, I posted a series reflecting on some of the changes I want to make for this upcoming school year. It is our staff development week here in San Antonio, and I have been looking back at my resolutions as I begin to plan for the return of the students next week. I’m glad I wrote these back in June – because many of the specifics of these declarations left my brain about a week after I recorded them. In case you are interested, and missed the posts the first time around, here are some of my goals for this school year:
I’m a bit concerned about my Doodling goal. I think I can do the encouragement part – but maybe not so much the modeling!
Now, if I’m really good at this whole self-reflection business, I will come back to this list next June to evaluate how I fared. Maybe I should ask my students to track these; they have much better memories!
