Fourteen in 2014!

Hello and Happy New Year!  Today I'm linking up with Kristin, Traci and Hadar for:
This quote from John Gardner is one of my favorites.  You can read the whole speech here.

 I bought this skirt at Ann Taylor Loft, and I love it because it's plaid!We watched this in school at the end of last year, and it's an amazing story.  Plus, I already love dolphins so what's not to like?
I love this show!

I love Morena's!  It's a small family-run restaurant with delicious food!

I'm combining 8 and 9 because I received an i-phone for my birthday in October:

I was happy with my flip phone, but everyone kept telling me how much I would LOVE the i-phone.  I like that it's big enough for me to read and use.  I still don't carry it around with me all day or sleep with it next to my bed.  The family is still complaining how they can't get in touch with me.  I'll have to try harder to have the phone on and nearby.

This question took me the longest because I had to review all my Pins several times - it's a BIG decision to pick a favorite.  
I chose this Reading bulletin board because it's such a great idea.  Click here to see the original Pin.

I'm picking a blog post from last January about our first week after vacation.  I enjoyed reading what we did after vacation - I should go back and read my blog more often!  Click here to see the original post.

I have had a Morning Meeting every day of school since the first day.  I love seeing how my message are evolving and improving.  At first, I just copied the message from my Morning Message book (click here to check out the book on Amazon.)

This picture was taken this past Thanksgiving.  From left to right:  me; my sister, Nancy; my father; and my brother, Brendan.

I really enjoyed going to Nantucket last summer.

This was a wonderful family vacation.  Plus, I finally went on a whale watch which was something I'd always wanted to do.

I want to continue to learn and implement more Responsive Classroom techniques.

This quote was shared in the Responsive Classroom course I took last summer.  I really believe that school should feel safe, welcoming and nurturing for all my students. 

My mind is constantly racing onto something else so I'd really like to learn to live in the moment.

Thanks for reading this lengthy blog post. 

Happy New Year!  Enjoy your vacation time!

  1. Hi Susan,
    I enjoyed reading your year in review. You accomplished many goals this year (don't forget our Retell course!- it seemed so overwhelming at first, but we did it! I feel so fortunate to have been a part of your life this year. I treasure your friendship! You are such a dear friend, fabulous teacher, and inspiration to others. Wishing you a year filled with love, knowledge and peace.
