Slice of Life ChallengePlease join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!
1. Using my time wisely.
There's a lot to accomplish this year. I need to manage my time, so I've set up a schedule...when I'll grade, work on my evaluation paperwork, plan, and take time for me. If I'm smart, everything will be fine.
2. Being in the moment.
When there's lots on my plate, I get overwhelmed easily. This year I want to stay in the moment. Be. This helps with anxiety and stress.
I have a tendency to talk. A LOT. All the time...I want to listen more. When I talk a lot, I'm usually passionate about something, but I miss out when I'm talking. There's so much to learn by listening.
4. YOU MATTER. Check out Angela Maiers website. She has a YOU MATTER Manifesto.
I want these words and this message to guide my year with my students. I want each student to know that they are seen and that they matter. Check out her amazing TED talk...
