Welcome 2014 - DAY 4 Professional Goals

So -- I'm excited to think about all these goals but now I'm beginning to wonder which ones will stick and which ones will fall by the wayside.  I almost feel like I'm adding to my never-ending checklist.  Do any of you have one of those?  My hubby is beginning his first year as a middle-school teacher this week and I keep telling his military mind to shut off because all those tasks/ideas he's got will eventually form into his own never-ending list of things to do.  He's about to understand my world up close and personally!  Any-who…Professional Goals are:
  1. To really get into this amazing new dimension to my life as a teacher -- blogger/TPT store owner.  I am so in love with this world.  I don't know why I'm so late to the party.  I like how several others have put a true goal of blogging once a day and uploading freebies & products once a month.  I might try a little lower and if I attain that level, I will be able to celebrate bigger!  
  2. Team, team, team!  I am so excited to collaborate and get ideas from this world.  I also know that there are many amazing teachers right in my own school.  This is only my 2nd year at this school and so I think it is time to make the rounds and get in some great collaboration groups at school.  Especially with my own 2nd grade team of teachers.  
  3. I will have a Student Teacher join me in a week.  She will be here for the rest of the year.  I'm excited to help, lead, and learn from a young, eager, educator.  So that goal is not just lead but learn too.
  4. It's time to get that Masters Degree.  My hubby and I keep talking about it.  Time to make it a reality!  I LOVE to learn so I'm going to put my student hat on too!
So what are your professional goals?  Any suggestions to help with mine?  Stop by Blog Hoppin' and link up with us.

  1. You have some great goals and practical too! I shared my thoughts on community on my blog. It is a huge help to our success as educators when we collaborate with others! Good luck on these goals and have a great start back to school!
