2018 Goals

We spent the last week on a very wintery family vacation – snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tubing, swimming, bowling, eating, watching movies and hockey, knitting, reading, doing puzzles, and sleeping in. It was a perfect way to spend the second week of our time off from work and school.

I looked back on how I did with my goals for 2017, and of course have started thinking of goals for this year. These aren’t resolutions, because I think the whole “I’m going to change my life because the calendar flipped” thing is bunk. I more like to build on what I was able to accomplish in the last year, which might mean keep going with something, altering my goals, or scrapping them all together.

Here is what I hope to achieve this year:


  • Practice patience more with children and DH
  • Get back to regular date nights with DH


Body & Mind:

  • I’ve registered in an adult jazz/ballet class!
  • I want to continue doing yoga and meditation regularly
  • Continue to find activities I enjoy and do them regularly


  • I’d like to get back into doing longer-term assignments, rather than doing daily supply teaching.
  • I want to start implementing some of the strategies I’ve been learning about lately once I get my own classes (limiting homework, going gradeless, etc.)
  • I want to continue to view certain personal characteristics (empathy, making connections with students) as my greatest strengths in the classroom.

2017 was a great year for me, and I intend for 2018 to continue in that way!
