Talent: Create New Year Resolves

As teachers~ we are charged with continuously growing our talents. Our colleagues need it from us; our students expect it of us; our leaders know it is in us; and~ parents/society assume it of us! What commitments are you making for your personal and professional cultivation this year? It is wonderful that we get to make new year's resolutions every September. Here are mine:
1. Provide myself the time each day to read inspirational thoughts to share with others; maybe~ this is the day I can change someone's attitude about contributing to life's amazing journey!
2. Provide myself time to pray continuously; maybe~ my sincere prayers can change the world! I must continue to think big-God expects nothing less of me!
3. Provide my classes with an optimistic smile even when I am feeling like I want to be left alone; maybe~ this act will engage a learner as I stay focused on the needs of my students.
1. Learn another new social media to enhance the growth of my students; I must know so that I can keep students safe.
2. Learn to blog in order to expand my 43 years of educational experiences; I must model good writing in a public forum.
3. Learn the piano; I must experience what new learning feels like to maintain empathy for my students.
