New School Year Resolutions Linky Party

I am linking up with Amanda at Teaching Maddeness to make my New School Year Resolutions. I am horrible at making New Year's Resolutions, but New School Year Resolutions sounds fun! Here goes...

#1 Learn as many blogging tips and tricks as possible this year. I just started blogging on Saturday and it's overwhelming and addicting at the same time. I think once I've learned more, I'll feel more comfortable and find a balance.

#2 Don't leave until all "piles" are off my desk-well I'd have to move my family into my classroom! Ok, file papers as soon as I'm done using them. Easy enough right? Well, why is at the end of the year I have "getting to know you activities" sometimes hiding at the bottom of a pile (they're neat piles, but I always have at least one pile)?

#3 Use my planning period wisely-I'm a talker! My family is going to have a busy schedule this year, so I have to stay focused at school and bring less work home.

#4 Buy a laptop for home so I don't have to lug my school laptop home everyday! I like to work in bed while catching up on my reality shows.

Sounds great doesn't it? Ok Amanda, wave your magic wand for us!


  1. I just found your blog by your comment on Fancy Free in Fourth's blog! I am a fellow fourth grade teacher and your newest follower:) I am totally with you on numbers 3 and 4!! Oh, and I guess #1 and #2 too. Welcome (I'm a newbie too...just started July 7th and it is SO addicting)...

  2. Hi Holly! I am your newest follower too! Number 4 should be the easiest to solve-just costly. We need to look now with all the Back To School sales! Let me know if you find a great deal!

  3. I find piles all the time. I have got to be better at clearing out my piles of paperwork. I definitely need a new laptop. I'm thinking of a Mac. Never had one.
    Hope you have an awesome year.

  4. I think my piles breed and multiply during the night because there always seem to be new ones popping up! =)

    Blogging is so much fun. It looks like you are off to a great start. If you ever need any help, just ask. =)

  5. Well, #3 should help with #2 (I can't say I am not a little curious to see how you pull #3 off ha, ha). This is a great idea!!! I look forward to learning right along side you :)

  6. I hope as you find blogging tips and tricks you pass them along...I am just learning too! I am your newest follower! Come visit me at!
