TPT Seller Challenge: Dare to Dream

It's not always easy for me to open up about my dreams or why I do what I do.  This week's challenge is encouraging me to do just that - reflect and share.  So here goes…

First of all, I love my job and adore the teachers that I work with.  But I find that I rarely get outside of that "bubble" because it's such a great bubble.  I really want to branch out to connect and collaborate with other teachers.  I teach in a Christian school, so I love learning about other school systems and what makes them click.

When I think "what would I do with a little extra cash?" there are a few things that come to mind.  Immediately, I would love to earn some extra money to put back into my blog with a professional design.  Right now, I'm a diy blog designer…and I'm pretty sure it shows.  Ha!  I would also love to get a nice digital camera, since my handy dandy iPhone is all that I ever use.  So much of what we do online depends on great photos.  But my family may all start running away from me since I will always want to take pictures.

Long term goals?  Well we have two beautiful girls, and of course we want to pay for them to go to college.  My husband and I were both blessed to graduate from college with NO STUDENT LOANS! We now realize how fortunate we are for that.  We would love to do the same for our girls and have already started saving.  I want to be able to contribute to that and say, "I did that."  I continually joke with my husband when he talks about saving for college.  I chime in to add "and weddings…"  I'm fairly certain that he has no clue what he is in for.  So maybe my little TPT store could help with that one day, too.

So there you go - that's my dreams in a nutshell.  I'd love to know your dreams, too!


  1. I think your blog looks great! :)

    1. Thanks! It's definitely a work-in-progress learning curve! :)

  2. Well now there is nothing wrong with the look of your blog (I may just have the same background design so might be bias) but I know what you mean it would be nice to afford your own custom design that feels just right - best of luck with your journey!

  3. I like the way you phrased the collaborations with students outside of your school "bubble." I like that about social media, blogging, tot, etc. It's nice to go a little beyond your own school network. One of my dreams was to pay for my daughter's college as well! :) I enjoyed visiting your blog!
