So recently I posted that one of my goals for next year is to foster more community and collaboration among my students. Now, I am reaching out to my community to help keep me accountable to that goal and other goals I've posted.
As teachers, we are disappointed when students don't show self-regulation and discipline. However, if I'm honest, it's something I struggle with as well - especially when I don't have an outside force holding me accountable. When it's only me trying to set and reach a goal... at best, I do this, I reach out. "Siri, Remind me on August 15 what I said I'd do in June..."
I'm also reaching out here, and I'll reach out to my local community as well.
Hey there in cyberspace! Will you check up on me next year? Will you share your strategies for holding yourself accountable to your goals?
