2013-14 reflection, and some goals to end the year

Ok so our school year goes from February to December here in New Zealand, but I still remember linking up to I Heart Recess for the back to school goals linky!  Here is what I wrote last time

And BOY DID I FAIL!!! But because I live by that motto down the bottom there, I'm gonna have a wee giggle, and then move on.

Personal - Nope, not even nearly.

Organisation - Again, what a laugh!

Planning - They worked for about a fortnight... I think? Gosh it was a while (and a class) since I set these goals!

Professional - I didn't even teach maths last year, so I'm not even sure why I set this goal...

Students - Well I actually did complete this one!!

And I think I will keep that motto!

Head over to I Heart Recess to see what everyone else wrote for their reflections.

IN THE MEANTIME! I will set some new, possibly more achievable goals now.  But will only be setting them until Christmas, because then I will say goodbye to this lot, and say hello to the summer.

Personal  - I've started it a few times... I WILL finish it this year.

Organisation - You are probably sensing a theme here... My desk is a mess.  The kids use it as a dumping ground, and so do I.  I WILL tidy it each day this term!

Planning - I've been really lazy with this so far this year, I WILL get things sorted 2 weeks in advance this term!

Professional - I have a few leadership roles this year, but need to start "leading" instead of just doing it myself.  I WILL delegate at least 5 jobs this term!

Students - Well this is an easy one, because we've already planned for this.  I WILL have my kids teach the class about their chosen part of the solar system!!
Motto - Just because I liked it so much :)
What are your goals?

  2. I hear ya about your desk- always a challenge of mine! Good luck!! I love your motto! :)

  3. I like your organization goal... I can't go home until my desk and the counter area behind my desk is clean... I don't like to come into my classroom in the morning and have it unorganized.... Makes the day so much better.. :o)

  4. I ran my first 5k last year....you can do it! Good luck on organization, start small :) Thanks for linking up!


  5. I had the same organization goal last year and also failed! Ha! I know where everything is when it's messy... that's my excuse!

    I did Couch to 5k a few years ago and now I run all the time. It is so much fun and I couldn't have done it without Couch to 5k app. Good luck!!!
