Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: A New Year...New Goals

A New Year...New Goals

I am excited to be joining Stephanie from Mrs. D's Corner for a fun linky about our goals for 2015!


It is hard to believe it, but 2015 is just over a week away. Last year, I set, what I thought, were some pretty lofty goals. I was blown away by how easily I met all of my goals. It was an amazing year! I plan to work just as hard to have a successful 2015!

Personal: 
We are planning another Caribbean cruise for fall break. I desperately want to be bikini ready by the time of the trip. Teaching and running a business has not been good for my waist line! This will probably be my toughest goal to meet.

Professional:
I love having a TpT business, but it can be lonely working from home every weekend. I love meeting other TpT authors and will be more diligent this year about going to local meet ups. I am so good about Facebooking, but I want to improve my blogging. I have so much to say...but not as much time.  I am going to double my income this year. It sounds crazy! But I sat down with my husband and lots of data. It is totally possible!

Planning:
I need to be a week or two ahead when it comes to my lesson planning. I hate having to do lesson plans from home on Sundays. My new Erin Condren planners will make this task so much more fun!

Organization:
I have so many files on my computer! I have been organizing my clipart, but now I need to organize my digi paper, borders, products I have purchased and products I have made. After I get organized, I need to get it all backed up somehow. Yikes! This sounds like a lot of work. I would love any advice that you have.

Students:
I am so happy with the book clubs that I added to my guided reading groups this year. However, I have not done enough to teach close reading strategies. I ordered a new book and plan to do some research. We love to read, now we need to read deeper!

Moto:
No two students are alike. Just like snowflakes. The unique qualities make them so special. But it also means they don't all learn or behave the exact same way. It is all about differentiation!

What goals do you have for 2015?

  1. Enjoyed reading your post. You are right, teaching and TpT doesn't leave much time for healthy eating and exercise! I'd love to read more about your professional goals! I would like to aim for the same ones!
    Merry Christmas!
