I Haven't Seen You Since Last Year!

Ha! It was my amazing third grade teacher Mrs. Lehman, a fiery and energetic red-head, who first said this to me, and I thought it was HILARIOUS! She would also tell us, "I haven't seen you since last month." Although this was way more years ago than I would like to admit, I still use it with my students today... and they still think it is hilarious, just like I did. So far, for every student, I have been the first person they have heard it from. I have to say, it brings me great joy to pass on the tradition of Mrs. Lehman.

As 2012 comes roaring into existence, I am thinking about resolutions. I always have a hard time with resolutions because I am not someone who likes to drop the ball... and with resolutions, many times, that is inevitable. Last year I resolved to run/walk the San Antonio Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon with my daughter. That did not happen, because when I started trying to train, I remembered how much I hate to run (and how much pain it causes me). So much for that resolution.

I made a lot of gains in my personal life in 2011 by changing my negative outlook (from not being able to find a job) to a positive one (mostly by starting this blog). So, for 2012, I think most of my resolutions should focus on Sub Hub. I try not to focus on the numbers, but really numbers are one of the only ways we have of measuring. Still, I am not setting any hard and fast number goals. I find that when I do what I love and provide things that you all like and need, the numbers just follow along.

For now, my resolutions are this:
1) Blog timely and relevant ideas that you can instantly take into a classroom and use.
2) Add to my lines of Emergency Sub Plans
3) Create at least two new lines of paid products
4) Create lots of easy-to-use freebies
5) Continue to make new friends with teachers all over the world

So, Happy New World Sub Hub world! May 2012 bring you everything you hope for!
