TPT Seller Challenge: DARE TO DREAM

I can't believe it's time for week 2's challenge! 

Growing up it was just me and my mum. My dad popped in and out of my life(we're great friends now) but my mother was my constant, my best friend. She passed away almost 5 1/2 years ago at the age of 60. She was an inspiring teacher of almost 40 years who dedicated herself to her work and who inspired me and countless others to enter the profession or to be the best they could be regardless. 
Why am I telling you all this? Well this week's challenge is…
I dream of making my mother proud. 
Every day I go into work with the intention of being the best I can be- my mum only got to see me be a teacher for 3 years and I still strive to make her proud. My main reason for being part of this amazing teacher community is to drive myself further towards my goal of being the best I can be for my children, to continue learning and improving, to keep me on my toes!  

As far as financial dreams, well, here goes…
Mr T and I don't have a family yet but we're hoping it's too not far away and, whilst I know I would return to work, I would like to not worry about the big drop in pay that taking a year off on maternity would cause. As it stands, a full year off would be a stretch but if my TpT store could start to turn a profit then I know that this is something that I would do without a second thought.

We love to travel to other countries but are very much aware that we also live in a beautiful country- we would love to own a vintage camper van and just set off to a random part of the UK for a weekend so this is something I would definitely splurge on!

When my mother passed away I was in the position to donate money to her school to develop a Storyteller's Garden, something she had always wished she could give the children she cared so much for. I would love to be able to give back to the children of my school in a similar way- our school isn't in the most salubrious of areas and money is tight for both the school and our families but I would love to provide experiences and equipment to enrich the lives of the little ones we care so much about.

I'm loving reading all of your hopes and dreams- thank you!
I think it's so brave of us all to share them, fingers crossed they come true Xx

  1. I bet your mother is looking down on you and is just bursting with pride! I love your blog. :) A storytellers garden sounds amazing!

  2. A vintage camper sounds wonderful!! That's something I would do here in the US as well! The Storyteller's Garden sounds like a fantastic idea! I hope you'll be able to do something positive in your own school!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a line Xx
