    Goal #1 – I have finished reading “Mathematician’s Lament” and I’m half-way through the other two books and I highly recommend reading them all.  They are good summer PD reading because you are thinking about what you want your classroom to look like, sound like and feel like.  So, although I’ve been relaxing and enjoying my reading time, it’s giving me food for thought as I build that picture in my mind of what my classroom will be like.  

    Goal #2 – I haven’t made too much progress on this front just yet.  I’ve re-organized my hard drive on my computer and started to look at what my new department head has given me.  I’ve made a list of all the things I want to print out to have up in my room to help build my classroom community.  I know that once August hits the calendar the impetus to actually start doing some planning and figure out what the first few days will look like will get me moving in that direction.

    Goal #3 – This one ties in with Goal #1 and #2, I have a list of ideas from Sara’s post that I want to implement and put up in my room.  I am still working on figuring out how to make it all happen without overwhelming myself and not doing it well.  I think I will focus on taking a few of my favourite ideas in order to make sure I include them effectively.

    Goal #4 – doing okay on this one.  I still need more time at the pool/beach though.  🙂
