Welcome back for Tell all Tuesday, hosted by the fabulous Teach Talk Inspire and My Day in K!
This week's topic: Teacher bucket list. What do you want to accomplish as a teacher? I don't know about you, but I spend a LOT of time in the summer reflecting on the previous school year and making goals/plans for the next one. This is the perfect time to start working on your own teacher bucket list. What are your goals as a teacher? What are things you want to do during your career? Do you want to stay in the classroom for 20 years (or more) or do you have other objectives in mind? These are my goals:
Grow my TpT store: I'm fairly new to this whole TpT thing, but I love sharing my resources with others and I would love to see that passion turn into a lucrative business. I love being in the classroom and I love sharing my ideas with others. If I can turn a profit with it, that's just icing on the cake. :)
Visit the Ron Clark Academy: You've heard about Ron Clark, right? If not, click here. I have seen others go the Academy and I would feel so blessed if I had the same opportunity. I use his Essential 55 book as a lesson on manners EVERYDAY in our classroom. It has made a HUGE difference in my student's behavior. I call him "Mr. Manners," and the kids may or may not believe that he watches them on the "camera" in the ceiling so he knows what manner to talk about the next day. That way it's not just me telling them to keep there arms down when they walk or transition quickly.
Present in Vegas: Yeah, that would be a huge honor. And one I would be so nervous to do. But I would love to be able to present at the conference and share some strategies with others.
What are your goals? Share in the comments below or link up with us. And be sure to stop by next Tuesday for another installment of Tell all Tuesday!
