New Year's Resolutions!

I am joining in on the fun of the New Year's Resolutions linky party!  Go over to A Teacher's Treasure to learn more about this linky.

My resolutions for 2012:

PERSONAL:

1.  To cook more for my family.  I am a pretty good cook, and I used to be the main mealmaker for my family, but when I began my Master's program, I got out of the habit, and my husband took over most nights.  I have been done with my Masters now for a year and a half, but he still probably fixes more meals a week than I do.  (Not that there is anything wrong with that :))  I just want to get back into the kitchen more.

2.  To exercise more.  Of course, I could afford to lose weight, too, but that would just be a happy aside.  I really need to do a better job of keeping in shape.  It is another thing that I used to do a pretty consistent job of, but in recent years, I don't take the time to exercise for me, and I know that it is something that I need to do.

PROFESSIONAL:
1.  To begin work on a Masters degree in technology.  I love it, I teach it, and I spend so much time using it, I really need to "bite the bullet" and get some hours towards a degree!

2.  To reevaluate my math structure and to be open-minded towards a math workshop approach.  I really love my math program, and I work hard to differentiate for all of my students, so I have been a little hesitant to pursue the workshop approach in math (even though I love it in reading).  However, I know that it is going to be expected in my district soon, so I guess I had better begin to see how I am going to make it work for me and my students.

3.  To share my passion of technology with others by sharing resources and ideas with colleagues, blogging friends, and my Twitter PLN.



I just read today that your resolutions should be realistic and small steps in order for them to stick.  I  hope that these fit that bill and that I am  able to make some changes in my life for the better of me and those around me.  Happy 2012!!
