My New Years Teaching Resolutions

1 Feb

I am now officially done with my summer holiday as I prepare to stand before the school and welcome them back to the new year. In my first blog of the new year  I am ready to post the goals that I have set for myself for 2014

 I will continue to be a lifelong learner by..

….completing my Level One Te Reo course.

This has been difficult but a true learning experience. It is hard to be put outside your comfort zone.

I will teach…

…to each individual student according to my learning plan.

I am a firm believer that to reach equality in the classroom everyone must be treated differently. Look at the data. What is it saying about the students in front of me.

…with  drive.

I want my students to build their own thinkers toolkit as the year progresses of knowledge, skills, learning approaches, thinking styles, reflective tools and ways of questioning. I want to help them scaffold answers and be the best they can be.

…and make connections.                                                                                  

Twitter and the VLN helped me become a better teacher in 2013. I want to build on this.

…with innovation.

Building on the above idea of connections. As technology moves along I wish to move with it, not two paces behind. I want to look into augmented reality as a way of getting students to share their learning with visitors and peers.

…and never forget the passion.

My students deserve the best and I shall give them that.

Continue to evaluate and analyse how I can do things better.

…in the 21st Century global village.

No walls here students. I am also open to listening to their ideas. Students have the best ideas.

As per usual I have my other resolutions which include reading 104 books this year, completing a half ironman and no iDevices on Wednesdays.

Wish me luck.

 

On a celebratory notethis blog is now one year old and this is the 100th post! Yay!
