Bringing in the New Year! - Mandy Neal

Bringing in the New Year!

There are two fabulous Linky Parties going on right now to share your New Year’s resolutions.  Who doesn’t like a good Linky Party?!?

Live, Love, Laugh Everyday in Kindergarten and A Teacher’s Treasure

Truth:  I have never been big on making New Year’s resolutions.  I do have a reason behind it, and it’s all personal.  I feel that I make goals on a daily basis, so why do I need to wait until the year turns to make a big one?  Yes, it may sound a little silly and maybe it is just an excuse,but this year I’m writing them down for all to see. 🙂

 

Personal:
1.  Don’t take anything for granted! 
2.  Drink more water.   
3.  Of course, get more exercise.

Teaching: 
1.  Carry a timer!  When I say you have so many seconds, I follow through!   
2.  Get the talking under control.  I was out of the classroom for a total of 20 school days this past quarter.  I have to start the New Year like it’s a new school year.   
3.  Expose my students to a larger variety of genre.

Blogging: 
1.  Set specific goals.  
2.  Stay focused.   
3.  Do more networking.

 Do you make New Year’s resolutions?  What’s yours?
