In her post, Chrissi resolves to 'pay it forward' in 2011 by signing up as a Literacy Volunteer at her local library, involving her whole family in donating time at a local homeless shelter, and living by the motto "faith, hope, love".
I was especially moved by her desire to work with native Spanish speakers who wish to improve their English and adults seeking a GED, as well as her comittment to leading by example by involving her children in helping the homeless in their area.
In this post, 'A Kentucky Teacher' commits to enriching and improving her students' educational experience by using diagnostic assessments. She discusses the importance of going beyond merely presenting information by determining the existing knowledge base and including fun along with learning.
Given that the children really are our future (Cue Whitney Houston Music!), her better world resolution stands to make a huge and lasting impact!
Since there were two prize awards promised, and two posts written specifically for this blogshare, both of these bloggers get to choose a charity or cause to which I will make a $10 donation. I will be contacting you both to find out where to send your prize! :)
If you missed it, here is my own Better World Resolutions post.
Additionally, two bloggers linked up their existing New Year's Resolution Posts:
By Word of Mouth's 2011 and What Makes it A Happy New Year
Teacher.Mom.Crazy Lady's Just Do It
Last but not least, thank you to everyone who commented in support of the idea! I plan to host another blogshare in the next few weeks related to the topic of feminism, so get your thinking caps on for that one and stay tuned for more details!
Special Section for the better late than never crowd! ;)
Tish writes about continuing and increasing her family's fundraising work from 2010, canning her own veggies and sauces, (which she reminded me that I need to get on board with this year too!) and volunteering her family's time and efforts with a local non-profit that provides outreach and recreational opportunities to people of all ages.
