2023 Resolution Check

In January I posted a set of teacher resolutions for the year.

For many teachers, the academic year is either half over, or nearing it’s end. For the rest of us, the calendar year is approaching its halfway point. So, given the time of year — whether academic or calendar — I thought it important to revisit my teacher-resolutions.

On my list were:

  • Make a schedule, and stick to it, for writing here on C is for Camacho
    • Still working on this one . . .
  • Renew all education licenses
    • One state’s worth of licenses were renewed at the end of 2022, the other state’s license I decided not to renew . . .
  • Attend an educational conference
    • Thanks to my current role, it looks like I will have to attend a conference in Salvador, Brazil–so: in progress!
  • Take one class or training on a subject, methodology, or technology tool that has interested me in the past year
    • I have not done this yet, but I also feel like moving to a whole new country has occupied all my time for learning new things. So: sort of done?
  • Continue to expand my educational profile/resume
    • I took a job in another country. I am absolutely expanding my educational range and resume.

As you can see, I am making some progress. I am meeting some originally intended goals.

At the same time, I have made some revisions. No one is beholden to their original plan because plans cannot be complete in their original form. Things change. I have adapted accordingly.

I think it’s important to circle-back, to hold oneself accountable. I enjoy reflecting on what I thought this year would be like, versus what it actually looks like–but what about you? How’s your year going? Any resolutions–teacher or otherwise–you’d like to share about? What did you meet, adjust, or remove altogether?
