Writing my way through the school year!

New Year’s resolutions, who really keeps them? I make them every year, in a list,mentally, verbally to others, and I never, ok, rarely keep them. But here are some resolutions I think all teachers should keep:

I resolve to:

  1.  treat all  students fairly, regardless of race, gender, age,  behavior, parent’s nasty attitude, desire to be educated, or lack of interest in learning
  2.  believe all children can learn, no matter how many ways you have taught it, and they still don’t get it.
  3. stop using sarcasm as a disciplinary tool, no matter how effective it may seem.
  4.  speak in a quiet, even,tone, even when yelling seems to be the best option.
  5. realize that I could be the only good thing that happens in a student’s day
  6. grade papers in a timely manner, even if it makes you question whether anyone is actually learning anything in your room.
  7.  meet all deadlines, and if I’m late, don’t make any sorry  excuses.
  8. not gossip about my colleagues, the students, administration,etc… (This one is going to be really difficult)
  9. share with my colleagues, we are not in competition with each other. (Ok, this is another difficult one)
  10. use technology to engage my 21st century students
  11. continue to be passionate about my job, and if I’m not retire.:)
