Laura Stelsel is director of marketing and communications for Kappa Delta Pi.
We’re officially a week into 2014! I’m always intoxicated by the possibilities that a new year brings. While I know resolution setting is frowned upon by many, I always make it a point to sit down and write down a set of goals for myself for the coming year and revisit them quarterly. Some of mine for 2014 include writing and mailing more personal notes “just because,” keeping my email inbox clean (I’m an email hoarder!), sitting down for breakfast every morning, and, of course, being a healthier person.
I thought I’d ask our members if they were doing the same, especially setting goals as they relate to their careers as educators. Check out some of the responses we received via Facebook and Twitter. Have you set a goal for 2014? Leave your reply in the comments!
