buckle down [Middle English bokel, from Old French boucle, from Latin buccula, cheek strap of a helmet, diminutive of bucca, cheek.]
Summer fun is almost over, and it's time for this teacher to buckle down. I've been organizing my planning books. I have one for my private life as well as one for my classroom.
It's time to get serious and concentrate on my goals as well as the student goals. I've seen both teachers and students go back to school reluctantly, without making the decision to "Buckle Down". This can be torture and a waste of time.
Do you have goals in front of you?
Focus your attention, make a decision to buckle down!
Take the bull by the horns, and get serious!
