With the holidays behind us and a fresh new year ahead, many of us begin to wonder what's in store for us in the new year. It's a time for some, to make resolutions for the year ahead and for others to reflect on the year gone by.
I'd encourage you, if you haven't already, to take a few moments and think about what you'd like to accomplish with the remainder of the school year. This doesn't have to be something big - it can something as simple as getting your desk tidied. Of course, work is not (and should not) be the only thing in life. Also, have a look at your personal life and ask yourself what you'd like to make a priority for the new year. I don't like calling these things "resolutions" because no one ever keeps those. I rather think of these things as goals, to consciously work toward.
|What does 2013 have in store for you?
I just wrote and linked up a post on my blog, Lessons From The Middle, to a great little linky party "A Year in Preview" which is being hosted by blogging buddy Michelle, from Making It As A Middle School Teacher. Come on over and have a look at what different teachers are planning for the new year in their professional and personal lives. It may even inspire you to look ahead for yourself and make some simple, achievable goals, or to reflect on how you're doing with the last goals that you set.
Happy New Year Everyone!
