Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying their winter break. It has been great to relax and store up energy for the second half of the school year.

It is also a great time of year to contemplate the past year, and any changes you would like to make. My personal goal for this year is to avoid processed foods as much as possible, and lengthen my daily walking time (it helps I have a dog to walk!). How about you? Are there any personal or teaching goals you would like to share? I would love to hear them.

*As a note, diet does affect students/children and their ability to learn–so it is a great idea/goal to include unprocessed foods in those classroom parties and lunches as well.
