New {School} Year Resolutions


I love the idea of making school year resolutions. I am always making goals and writing them down and now that I have a blog dedicated to teaching, it will be so much easier to keep up with them.

  1. Use my time wisely- I have made a schedule for myself this year that I need to keep up with. I am working on my master's degree and I don't want to fall behind in any aspects of my life. In case you were wondering what my schedule looks like and also so I can document it somewhere, here it is...
    • Mondays- 
      • Leave work on time (2:45)
      • Exercise (3:00-4:00)
      • Masters Homework (4:00-6:00)
    • Tuesdays-
      • Late day at work (4:00)
        • Lesson Planning
        • Cleaning/Organizing
        • Copying
      • Exercise (4:15-5:00) 
      • Masters Homework (5:00-6:00) 
    • Wednesdays- 
      • Leave work on time (2:45)
      • Exercise (3:00-4:00)
      • Masters Homework (4:00-6:00)
    • Thursdays- 
      • Late day at work (4:00)
        • Lesson Planning
        • Cleaning/Organizing
        • Copying 
      •  Exercise (4:15-5:00) 
      • Masters Homework (5:00-6:00)
    • Fridays-
      • Leave work on time (2:45)
      • Exercise (3:00-4:00)
      • Masters Homework (4:00-6:00)
  2.  Stay ahead- Often I find myself getting "lazy" and falling behind on things like grading and lesson planning. Then when it comes time for report cards I'm scrambling to get everything done. I'm hoping since I have two "late" days at work, I can keep up with this one.
  3. Eat Right- With school starting, I don't want to get stuck in my old habits of unhealthy eating. Often times I will bring a microwave meal everyday for lunch just because it's quicker. This year I am planning on premaking my lunches, that way it will be easier to grab in the morning. 
I have more resolutions, but I don't want to overwhelm myself and not stick to them. I may just have these as my first quarter resolutions and then after fall break, see how well I stuck to these and add three more. If you haven't made yoru new school year resolutions yet, I highly suggest that you do.
