Meet your goals and ROCK your year

Here we are at mid-January of the new year. I'm wondering how many of us have given up on our New Year's Resolutions or been diverted from our goals that we set as the clock struck 2018?

For subscribers of my newsletter, today I shared 3 ideas for staying on track as we live out our words for the year and work on reaching our goals. In this post, I want to share another idea with you that may help you reach your goals this year and have the best year yet!

9 Awesome High School Flexible Seating Classrooms

There are a TON of images and ideas out there for flexible classroom seating. In this post, I will focus only on high school classrooms. 

While I'm not in the classroom anymore, I still enjoy thinking about classroom design based on brain research and the infusion of technology in the classroom.

See the end of this post for what flexible seating IS and what it is NOT, by Betsy Lancy, from her blog, All Kinds of Learning Adventures.  

Here are the nine awesome classrooms, in no particular order... Get inspired!

YOU are always enough

Twitter is amazing.

No, really. It is.

So many posts have been shared over the past few days about the new year - #oneword and #my3words. They have been heartfelt and simply awesome. Energy and motivation is high, and it's easy to get caught up in the enthusiasm as we start 2018.

But what happens as the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months? Will our motivation still be as strong?

My 3 Words for 2018

I always look forward to the holidays to celebrate Christmas and spend time with family and friends. As an educator, it's very rewarding personally to have time off between Christmas and New Year's because it gives me time to reflect on the previous year and make plans for the new year. Putting together a list of the top 10 posts from the year and connecting with my PLN in Voxer groups and on twitter all help me look forward as I continue to grow as a person and educator. 

This will be my fifth year to follow Chris Brogan's lead and choose 3 words to guide my year. No more resolutions or lists of things to stop doing. These are the words that will guide my actions throughout the year. This year, in addition to creating a visual for my office, I'm going to do something new with them. I'm going to create a recurring monthly event in my calendar so that I can do a "check in" with myself throughout the year.
