- Build better relationships
- Engage students more
- Share my passions
- Keep my balance
As you can see by the date it is the beginning of a new calendar year and I head back to school tomorrow to get ready for the second semester. Second semester for me means a new set of students. I've been thinking of these students a lot during break. I've been wondering how I can improve my lessons to engage all students, how to improve my classroom management, and how to do a better job at keeping balance in my life between school and home. As my colleagues know, my first semester was very difficult and I am not satisfied with how it went because I never felt like I was an effective teacher. So this semester I resolve to do better for myself and my students. Here are my resolutions:
I am a Social Science instructor at Aurora High School. I am currently teaching College/Honors American History and American History.
