I'm linking up for Tell all Tuesday with Teach Talk Inspire and My Day in K to share my teacher bucket list.
Before I got pregnant, I was right on track with all of these goals. I had just finished my master's degree in curriculum and instruction with a focus in reading and language arts. I had also gotten my reading specialist and master reading teaching certificates.
But then I decided to stay home last year with my baby (totally worth it, no way I could have done both well, especially since I had Gracie in November) and I am definitely staying home next year too. Not sure after that. But I know when I do go back to work, I will be looking for a reading specialist or literacy coach position instead of going back into the classroom.
I'm honestly not even sure which I would prefer right now, I sort of go back and forth. I love helping struggling readers, but at the same time I could impact a lot more students by educating teachers themselves. When I do something, I have to give it my all or I just don't want to do it...so I just don't think I can juggle a new job like that and a baby right now without neglecting one. So in the meantime, I just want to work on growing my blog and TpT store, though I do need to get back to doing some professional reading at some point so I am prepared down the road to jump back into working (Which scares me! I never want to go to another job interview again!).
