Personal: I tend to come home, finish my work, and feel like going to bed at literally like 8:00 PM sometimes. So I feel like I don't spend much time with my husband, doing things I want to do that aren't work, or just relaxing. I do get up early, at 5 AM, but I want to try to stay up until 10 PM every night and avoid going to bed super early.
Organization: So I never did get rid of my 9,000 emails or organize all my files this summer. They are somewhat organized...but some are not. I need to stay on top of my email and delete what I don't need, save attachments to the correct places, etc. Luckily, my computers have great search features so I can always find everything, but I should be able to keep stuff more organized.
Planning: I need to get it done at school. We are splitting planning this year and doing it in groups of two, plus we have a new principal that intends on checking lesson plans the Friday before...I can't stand now having something submitted on time so I know that will help me out a bit. Previously, it was said our lesson plans were due on Monday morning.
Professional: I procrastinate all the time! With my Master's coursework and my planning, school work, etc. I always, always. always have everything done on time, but I torture myself doing it along the way. I don't like doing stuff I don't want to do. But I need to learn to just do it.
Students: I just want my students to love reading and writing and to do it independently...that's everything.
Motto: I hate when I hear excuses for why students didn't do well or why they can't do something...I'm sure I've done it too...but I need to remember to keep expectations high for every child. They are capable of what you hold them to.
