Some people make New Year's resolutions; I make back to school resolutions.
Sure, it may be a little early to write about going back to school. After all, I have well over three weeks left in my decidedly generous summer vacation.
Yet, as August advances, I can't help but think about getting back into the classroom and back onto a routine...a better one than last year, of course.
I will streamline my lesson plans, all the while trying out new methods and activities.
I will better organize my grocery shopping in order to cook simple and delicious meals on weeknight evenings.
I will use my long ( I do teach in France, don't forget) lunch break to good avail.
And so forth!
