Teachers Share Their School Year’s Resolutions

Artboard 1 copy 12

Starting in August, we asked teachers on social media to post their “School Year’s Resolutions.” Inspired by the New Year’s tradition, we wanted to take that spirit of new beginnings and apply it to the back-to-school season.

Teachers shared dozens of ideas for the year that ranged from encouraging tech in the classroom to making sure paperwork is turned in on time. We picked out a few of our favorites, here for your enjoyment and inspiration. #HappySchoolYear!

These teachers focused on helping students feel like learners and encouraging a growth mindset:

Others highlighted the key role tech plays in the classroom:

Some aimed to help students build their reading skills:

And a few were focused on more… administrative ideas:

Our staff joined in, sharing their personal and professional ideas for the year:

Finally, some teachers had ideas that we couldn’t categorize but were too good not to share.


(If you’re a teacher and you like the resolutions idea, you can turn it into a start-of-the-year classroom activity. Have your students identify their own resolutions for the year, then post them around the classroom. This can encourage a growth mindset, and teach students the importance of goal-oriented thinking. Here’s a document you can use to start, and please share the results with us if you try this out!)

Have a resolution you think belongs on this page? Share it in the comments, or on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with #HappySchoolYear!
