Back To School Goals

Two weeks into summer vacation and I am linking up with Jess from I {heart} Recess to reflect on last year's goals and set goals for the upcoming school year. 

Last year's goals: 
If you are interested, you can find my old post here
Here's how I did:
Personal: My personal goal was not to stay late at school several nights a week and make more time for myself. Overall I would say I achieved this goal - I procrastinated less this year than usual and rarely stayed late at school (although I do get to school about 90 minutes early each day). For it being my first year in a new district and new grade level, planning and preparing was much less stressful than I expected it to be! :o)
Organizational: Not so successful here. My filing habits were better this year than in the past, so that made it al bit easier to make the mad dash two days before the evidence binder was due to locate the evidence that should have been in it. Oops! 
Planning: A work in progress...that is not to say that my lessons weren't meaningful, but I am already looking at adjusting things, especially math, for next year. I do not dislike the math program that we use, but I'm not sure that it is always meaningful. 
Professional: Success!!
Students: With the amount of tears shed at 4th grade graduation and on the last day of school I am pretty sure that my kiddos enjoyed their school year. 
Motto: Nope! lol

Now for B2S14 Goals...

I totally meant "meet up" not "link up"! That's what I get for trying to do things after the baby goes to sleep. :)
