The time has come the walrus said to talk of many things – so the rhyme goes. Well given the amount of dinners and get togethers I’ve gone to during the Christmas holidays I’m surprised I’m not the siza of a walrus and there are many things that have to be talked of and done in the new term.
One of my new year resolutions in regard to school is to have a new positive attitude. I feel in the latter part of last term I did a lot of complaining and let the little things get to me unnecessarily. Therefore I feel that this new term prompts a new attitude towards myself as a teacher and towards my pupils, however much annoyance they have caused me previously. This, I know, may be difficult but I am resolved to keep this one, perhaps more strictly than the one to do more exercise and eat healthily, as I feel that it will have an effect on other parts of my life outside school.
This is a long term and there is a lot to get done but it is all do-able and I am looking forward to the next set of challenges. A positive attitude and all the good things that I have to look forward to can only be a good thing. Onwards and upwards!
