Teacher Resolution #2


I solemnly resolve...
#2. I will keep up with all the paperwork, all the time.

Quite a goal. But how realistic is it?

How about this:

I will keep up with mandatory paperwork in a timely manner, and not create unnecessary paperwork for myself. 

There are plenty of deadlines for all teachers that are universal: grades, behavior reports, cum files' stuff. But sometimes in our enthusiasm we create lots of paperwork related activities that don't really need our personal touch but as teachers we may not want to let go of the control. Our time is our most precious resource and if we can expedite the necessary paperwork through better organization, we should also let go of time-consuming, and possibly unnecessary, teacher grading/commenting interactions on everything.
