Today, the students and I talked about our New Year’s Resolution. I admitted to them how I always set resolutions, which are impossible to keep after a month. I always say I am going to diet after overeating all holiday season. Then I admit the diet will never work so I will give up chocolate. My students know this will never happen; Mrs. Pittorino needs her Baby Ruth’s. Finally, I forget the diets and deny myself chocolate, I decide to exercise which is a thrill to my dog. Well, now that temperature is dropping, once again this will never happen. So here it is, I am going to read one book a month for the pure pleasure. I told the students today, this will allow me to relax, get informed about the latest books my students are reading and set a good example for my own children and students.
Ask your child their New Year’s Resolution. There are a lot of promises for cleaner rooms, prioritizing homework and video games and being nicer to one another.
I hope 2015 brings to our families peace, happiness and giggles from our children often. I wish you and your families a wonderful 2015.
