It's official! 2014 is here. To celebrate, I'm joining up with Jessica today over at First Grade Nest to share my 2014 Goals and Resolutions with you. Maybe if I write them down, I'll actually achieve them!
Professional goal for my career:
Increase student engagement! I have spent a large portion of my vacation reading professional books to help me become a better teacher in my 5th grade classroom. Stop by later this week to see some of my reviews of these books!
Professional goal for my blog:
As I increase engagement in the classroom, I'm hoping to share what that looks like with all of you! My goal is to work more efficiently. Sometimes I get online and get a tad distracted...anyone else have that problem??
To spend less time with technology. Since my blog goal is to work more efficiently, I am hoping to spend less time on the computer/phone/etc in order to spend more time in the real world.
Vegas! We have done a lot of traveling in the past two years, so this year is definitely going to be a lot calmer. However, I'm hoping to visit Vegas for the TpT conference in July. Fingers crossed!
Vegetables. Yes, that's right. I am a super picky eater and I don't eat veggies. None of them. Yes, I am an awful person. I have already started though! I have been adding spinach to my smoothies the past few days. Baby steps.
Photoshop. This has definitely been on my to-do list for a long time. I love to take photos and want to learn how to edit my pictures to make them even better!
Senseless spending. I want to be more aware of my finances and only purchase items that I really need. I will also be using coupons as much as possible and hitting up store sales!
I so want to hit a TpT milestone this year! I am getting very close. When I started this ride 2 years ago, I had no idea where it would take me. The fact that someone wanted to use my products in their classroom simply amazed me. I am so glad that I have been able to help students learn and educators teach. Thank you!
Happy New Year!
