Tell All Tuesday: Teacher Bucket List

It is TELL all TUESDAY! I am so excited to link up with Teach, Talk, Inspire and My Day in K for this summer linky party! It is my first Tell all Tuesday and I am excited to share some of my teacher bucket list goals!

Let's get started! 

1. Get My Ed. S Degree
As I continue to gain more experience, I want to continue my education and learn more. I think back to how beneficial my graduate degree was and I know I would gain so much more now with more experience under my belt. This would be a huge step in development for myself and I am hoping to do in the next few years! 

2. Grow My TpT Store
I have been saying for a few years I wanted to open a store but I was intimidated by getting the process started. I finally decided this summer that now was the time and TA-DA, I have a store! I have learned so much from incredibly helpful bloggers. I am so glad I decided to make the leap because this community of teachers are so supportive and inspiring! Maybe next year I will be in Vegas (that should have been on the list)! I want to continue to learn more and grow my store to help educators and develop better stuff for the kiddos in my class!

YAY!!! There it is!

3. College Advising

Ok, this one is a BIG dream for the future. I LOVE working with new teachers. I love interacting, discussing, sharing, and collaborating with them! I love the energetic spirit and the process of mentoring a new teacher. I also love mentoring new teachers because it helps me to improve my own teaching practice. It forces me to look at what I am doing and allows me to step back and reflect more frequently. With this passion I would love to be able to expand one day and work with a college as an advisor for student teachers or as a professor. New teachers need so much support and encouragement and I would love to be apart of educating our future educators!

Thanks for stopping by! Link up and share your bucket list!


  1. I loved reading your post! You have great goals on your bucket list :) We have two of the same goals on our bucket lists! Continue our education and grow our TPT store! I have been debating on what to go back to school for and I am still new to TPT and would love to be able to go to Vegas next year too! (P.S. I am your newest TPT follower #21!) Good luck with your store and all of your goals!!!

  7. Kristen, I loved reading your goals. Congrats on opening your TpT store. I just started in February. Like you, I always wanted to, but was afraid. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. This community is so supportive and helpful. It amazes me. I wish you all the luck as you work towards attaining your goals. I hope to go to Vegas next year too, I hope we can both go and meet! Thanks for sharing and linking up with us!
