Surprisingly, it was harder than I thought to plan ahead for some areas of 2013. But it is definitely a year I'm looking forward to. In 2013 I will conclude my tenth year as a fifth grade teacher. My youngest will graduate kindergarten, and my oldest will enter my building as a fourth grader in the fall. Hopefully we will travel to the Columbus Zoo for my daughter's birthday (she loves, loves animals) and Kalahari Water Park is a request by my son. I'm hoping to increase my usage of technology in the classroom, as well as continue to implement reading, writing and math workshops daily. My professional goals are to confer with students with more fidelity during all workshops. Too many days go by where I magically end up doing something else besides conferring. My personal goal is to spend as much quality time as possible with my husband and kids, I easily get way to wrapped up in work.
So, here's to a great 2013. I can't wait to read all of the things you're looking forward to!
