Tell All Tuesday: Teacher Bucket List Edition

It's my favorite blogging day of the week--Tell All Tuesday!  I'm LOVING this linky series from My Day in K and Teach.Talk.Inspire.

This week's theme is all about creating your own Teacher Bucket List.  Here is mine:

Go Back to School:
I wish I had been in a position to get my Graduate Degree right out of college, but I couldn't at the time.  Over the past 9 years, I've applied and been accepted to two different programs, but life keeps putting extra school on hold.  Good things about life no doubt... my beautiful family!  However, I love being in school.  Research/reading/writing...I'm a school nerd at heart.  I would love to eventually earn my Specialist's Degree in Curriculum/Instruction.  

Attend a Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Summer Workshop
My wonderful school became one of TCRWP's project schools several years ago.  We have had the most amazing trainers come to work with us and our students for intense training in both reading and writing.  I loved every minute of it.  Nevertheless, I would love to spend a week in NY doing one of their Summer Workshop Training experiences--maybe even meet Lucy Calkins herself!

Present at a Conference/Workshop
One day I would really love to teach and present to other teachers.  I've had a few groups of teachers come in to watch me teach Reading/Writing Workshop in my classroom, and I even taught a Reading/Writing Workshop conference at my school last summer for about 20 other second grade teachers...but I'd like to explore this facet of my career further.  I actually LOVE public speaking...helping other teachers and collaborating with colleagues.  

Grow my Blog/TPT Store
I'm a new blogger.  I've been at TPT a while longer, but not until recently have I really been trying to build my business.  I LOVE creating resources for my classroom, and I love the idea that other teachers can find these resources helpful in their classrooms.  I would love for this blog and my TPT store to gain followers.  I would love to meet some of the teachers that I have blog stalked followed, and I would REALLY love to be at TPTVEGAS16...hate that I am missing out this year, but next year is in my plans!

Can't wait to hear about everyone else's Teacher Bucket Lists!  Hope everyone is staying cool in the Summer Heat!

Hootfully Yours,

I love that you want to do some public speaking! I would, if I wasn't so afraid to speak to adults! :) Thanks for sharing!
