Tell all Tuesday: Teacher Bucket List

Woohoo! It's Tuesday again! I am loving this link party with Teach, Talk, Inspire and My Day in K!

This week's theme is…
The Summer Holidays are always a great time for reflection- we're more relaxed, have time to think and planning to do so it makes sense that we not only plan for the year ahead but also our careers.
What do you want out of your career as a teacher? Is moving into management on your bucket list? How about becoming a curriculum leader?
Here's mine…

For the past 6 years I've delivered Phonics and Guided Reading lectures and workshops to a group of post graduate trainee teachers and I love it. This led me on to becoming an SLE (Specialist Leader in Education) with a Literacy focus. The aims of the SLE initiative is to use a teacher's expertise to support and develop practice in other classrooms and schools. Whilst I've continued my PGCE sessions and delivered several CPD sessions for teachers and TAs, I am yet to be 'deployed' so to speak- I am hoping this will pick up over the next couple of years as I am eager to share the strategies I love and have found effective with other professionals.

There are many reasons I'd love to grow my TPT store- to find out about them click here and visit my Dare to Dream blog post. In the first instance I'd simply love to support my own TPT spending with my profits- I'm not quite there yet!

Even though I began my teaching career focused on KS2 (7-11) since I qualified I've always taught KS1. I love it and am very proud of how amazing the children I get to spend my days with are but don't get me wrong, I think I'd love the chance to move into Foundation Stage or KS2 for a little while to keep myself fresh and develop my understanding of the Primary age range as a whole.
