Tell All Tuesday: Teacher Bucket List

I am linking up again with the wonderful ladies at Teach Talk Inspire and My Day In K for Tell All Tuesday. This week is my teaching bucket list. I feel like this list could be a mile long, but I am choosing just a few!
Reading Specialist: 
Teaching reading is my passion. Working part time I split my subjects with another teacher and I teach reading. When we made the split I knew I would be willing to trade social studies for science but I would not budge on me teaching reading. I love to unlock that world for students that aren't wonderful readers. I love to build skills and explore with the kiddos that are strong readers. I have my minor in reading instruction. Someday I would love to be a reading specialist. I only need a few more credit hours to get there. 

Did I mention I love reading? For the same reasons as above I want to unlock this wonderful world for kiddos. The position is open at my school and I want it...... but I also want to still teach part time and 3rd grade. I have confidence that if its the right thing for me God will open this door again. 

Masters Degree: 

I would love to get my Masters Degree in one of these subject areas. I think having more knowledge in these areas would be so helpful. I also want to be a life long learner! 

What are some of your teaching bucket list items? 


  1. Your blog makes me smile! I am a girl that hates sports so I just get a kick out of girls that do! :)

  2. I would love to be a librarian because I love books too. I could spend a whole day in the library. Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. I appreciate your librarian dream and that the answer for now may be "not yet". It seems that wherever you are you'll share a deep love for reading, and your kiddos will blossom in part because you are so passionate about it.

  4. I think you will make a great librarian! Goooooooo for you Masters! Cheer-Cheer! You can do it! Check out my post, it includes a FREEBIE.
    All the best!

  5. I love your trust in God to open doors for your career!!! He will!! :)

  6. What a cute blog! I love that you are passionate about helping students love reading. I am too! I love that you are trusting in Him to lead you when the time is right!

  7. Ashley, we have a lot of similar goals. I would also love to use my reading specialist degree some day down the road. Reading and writing our my passion. Thank you for taking the time to link up with us and I wish you all the luck as you continue to work towards your goals. :)
