A New Year

August 29, 2008

The upcoming program year is almost upon us.  While most of Project Learn’s classes will start the week of September 15, my classes will start after Labor Day.  While of course I enjoy teaching my classes, I do have some reservations as the first day slowly approaches.  It’s not that I don’t want to see my students.  And…it’s most certainly not that I’m not looking forward to teaching. 

Last year, I implemented some strategies in my classroom that I think were really successful.  The problem for me is that they’re beginning (okay, not beginning but begun) to feel pretty stale.  I need to find some way to revamp them into a new way to motivate and energize my students because if I’m sick of them, there’s not doubt that my students are close behind–if they haven’t already arrived the before me.  Luckily, I have a couple ideas for the upcoming year.  But because I’m somewhat superstitions, I’ll won’t tell you much about them until I implement them.

Wish me luck!
