So many people make New Year resolutions. Some are able to make them come to fruition while others try but struggle to stick to their lofty ideas of radical change. What if we think of the new year as a Fresh Start instead? Just like we start out the school year in August charged and pumped about great lesson ideas we want to try, we can do the same for the New Year and the new semester. Both students and teachers have been away from the "daily grind" for over two weeks now and are ready for some mental stimulation.
Let's embark on the New Year of 2016 with as much gusto as we can. Continue to stretch yourself and your students to new heights. Make your lessons relevant for your students so that they are engaged and taking away with them skills and strategies that will set them apart from their peers in the ever changing job market.
Make your work day FUN!! Remember why you got into education. You didn't get your teaching credential so that you could give students tests. Nope, you spent time earning your highly respected teaching credential so that you could be in front of young minds on a daily basis sparking their creativity and excitement for learning new things.
If you haven't yet hit your own personal restart button, DO IT NOW!! This is 2016: a New Year, a Fresh Start, and a time of endless possibilities......
Our ONE goal: To graduate every Fairfield High Student and to ensure that they leave FHS college and career ready!!!
Inspire, Engage, Excite, Lead, Foster, Create, Empower!!
Many more great things are in store for Fairfield High!
