This summer I am not going to kill myself to have earth shattering posts. I plan to spend time with kids... it's hard to believe but they are 13 and 15! I mean where on earth did the time go? I am going to do some reading. I have about 4 professional texts that I have started but not finished. I want to finish them. I also want to spend some time reflecting on what is working in my world and what is not. Maybe I'll figure out how to do a link up thing with a cute picture (or not :) remember I'm giving myself permission to not measure up)
I also want to work on taking some things that I have purchased or gotten free over the last few years and make them my own. This fall, no matter what grade I am teaching, I want my back to school pack to be my very own. I don't want to use things that I like part of but not all of. I want to simplify things, right now it's WAY too much! I want to do more reflecting and being intentional. Yep one of my summer reading books is Debbie Miller's Teaching with Intention. If I am blessed enough to be in K again (there is some speculation as to where I will be) then I want to be really reflective in what I am doing and have the data or reflections to back it up!
