Do you have a New Year's Resolution as a Teacher?

I made two resolutions last year and now I've learned that I should only make one! I can't believe I thought I could start a school choir on my own in two months with at least two well versed songs. I was optimistic, yes... but not realistic.

So my realistic goal for 2012 (and hopefully it will become permanent) is to do more inductive science experiments no matter what obstacles may come my way! I promised myself that I will teach 'quality' not 'quantity' so it's not going to be about racing against the clock to 'finish the syllabus'. This year, I'll be focusing on the Do's and Don'ts of... the inductive method. I think I'll use a Sherlock Holmes theme (that was just by-the-way).

I'll save the choir idea for 2013!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
