I learned through the years that I need to write my goals down on paper - I need a reminder throughout the year to keep me on track with my goals. Soooo this year I've made a quick template to print out and keep in my day book and post on the wall by my desk... I'm hoping that by being constantly reminded about what I've set out to accomplish this year, that I'll be more successful!
Just to give you some inspiration and get you started, I'm going to share some of my own goals with you!
-give my students at least one brain break in each 80 min. class
-to differentiate all major assignments in the classes
- to present at two conferences this year (I've recently started presenting at workshops and I'm really enjoying it!)
- to read five professional books this school year
- to cook at least three new recipes a month
- to go to the gym at least once a week

Good luck! Feel free to share a goal or two in the comment section... I'd love to hear what other teachers have planned for their year.
