Hashtag Goals

It's only a few days before I begin my FOURTH year teaching! I can't believe 3 have already flown by.  We begin our teacher work week on the 6th and the kids start on the 13th.  Oh.Em.Gee.

Since I only have a few days left of summer I thought I would share my goals for the year.  Someone tweeted a picture that I think perfectly sums these us....

I've always taken risks in the classroom but this year I want to go even farther.  I want to build a student led classroom that thrives on learning, collaboration, and love of school.  I want students to seek out knowledge, to be able to solve problems on their own, and to take CHARGE of their learning. I want to teach kids how to connect globally, how to use their ideas to change the world, how to make a difference, and to always Choose King.  This is a big leap, to sort of "give up" control, but thanks to Paul Solarz, Dave Burgess, Teach Like a Pirate, and Learn like a Pirate - I think I'm pretty well planned to take the risk and give it a shot.  

Cheers to the new year! 


  1. Wow! You're ready to go back already! When did you get out? In Michigan we aren't allowed to start until after Labor Day. Our last day this year was June 12th. Your goals sound perfect. Go for them girl! You can do this!
