Tell All Tuesday: Teacher Bucket List

 This week I'm linking up for Tell all Tuesday, hosted by Teach Talk Inspire and My Day in K! I'm a little late to the party, but better late then never, right? 

This week's topic is: Teacher Bucket List. What do want to accomplish? What are your goals that you want to reach as a teacher? Summer is the perfect time to sit back, relax, and reflect. If you're like me, you're already thinking about the upcoming school year, and asking yourself, what can I do better? Where do I want to be in 20 years? 

These are my goals: 

Grow my TPT store and blog: I know I am not alone in wanting to accomplish this goal. TPT is such a great way to gain some independence and explore the idea of having a small business. I honestly never considered myself artsy or overly creative, but I love creating things that are going to help kids and teachers to be more successful. The desire to see my students grow and improve is one of the main reasons I am challenging myself to create one product a least for the summer. Blogging doesn't yet feel natural, but it's such a great way to connect with other teachers, and to share ideas and resources that I want to really focus on updating and following other blogs. 

Become a Special Education Coach: I love teaching Special Education. I am a firm believer that my kids can do anything, regardless of their disability category. I have been teaching Special Education in the inclusive setting for 2 years and I love it. I really do. I believe that inclusion is a positive way to provide extra support to not only students in Special Education, but ALL students in the classroom. The strategies that we use in Special Education can help ALL kids. The district that I currently work for is diligently working to improve our inclusion model, and I would love to be part of it. I believe that my passion and belief in the positive aspects on inclusion would truly help other teachers. Also, I have all these great resources from Teachers Pay Teachers (wink, wink.)

Las Vegas: I have been stalking the blogs and Instagram pics of the teachers who are attending the Vegas conference, and I am so jealous! It looks amazing! My goal is to be able to attend next year and meet all these fantastic bloggers that I am following. Dream big, right? 

What are your professional hopes, dreams, and goals? 


  1. We have some goals in common. I was totally stalking the blogs and instagram hashtag last summer. Dream big indeed, who knows maybe next year we'll meet up in Vegas!

  2. We got this!!! The sky is the limit!!

  3. Elizabeth, I enjoyed reading your list thanks for sharing! I also have been envious of all the Vegas posts. I hope everyone who goes has a wonderful time. I am hoping to make it next year! Thanks for taking the time to link up with us! :)
