Once I get over the let down of summer being over, I just love the fresh newness of a new school year. It's a great time to start over and do things differently, or better, than I did last year. Here are a few of my resolutions:This school year, I will:- Give parents courtesy calls more often, even for relatively minor issues. They seem to appreciate the communication (and it's a great CYA).- Try to use my (bad) Spanish speaking skills more instead of using a bilingual staff member before trying to attempt to communicate myself.- Get more involved with the school community and the teaching staff...volunteer on more committees and attend more of the programs that I am not necessarily required to attend- Really push a wellness program that focuses on student AND staff health- Get my screenings done before the holiday break...NO EXCUSES!- Try to be less jaded with the frequent fliers and assume that there really is something bothering them, be it physical, emotional, or social- Take a sick day when I am truly sick and NOT feel guilty about it. - Spend more time on training my staff so I CAN take a sick day without guilt!There is lots more that I want to improve on...but that's a good start, lol. What about everyone else? What are you going to do differently this year?
