It's time for week 2 of the TpT Seller Challenge!
This week is all about our dreams with TpT.
I started blogging in 2010 as a way to share ideas with fellow teachers, as well as the parents of students in my class. I offered lots of free activities and downloads, and never planned on selling on teachers pay teachers. But after many of my blogger buddies started, I thought it seemed like a great way to make a few extra dollars. I had no idea the possibilities and outcomes TpT could bring me! It has already helped me pay off my debts, start a savings, and pay for a few trips to visit family and friends. It's been a wonderful blessing!
Today I sat down and thought about what I'd love to my future with TpT to be.
I have started to build a small savings, but of course would like that to keep building. I'd like to have money for when emergencies come up or future purchases (car, house, etc). I just want to be prepared. :)
My family all lives up in Canada. For some reason, I chose to live in the warmth of AZ instead of the bitter cold of Canada. That makes it a little difficult to see them as often as I'd like. While I don't want to move back to Canada (I can't handle all that cold!), I would love to be able to visit more often than once or twice a year. I'd love to make it back for birthdays, baptisms, and other special events.
Inspire and Be Inspired
Reading other teacher blogs and browsing their TpT stores has inspired me so much! I find amazing ideas for my classroom and love all the inspiration they give me. Likewise, I love to be that inspiration to others. I love sharing my ideas and activities with other teachers. New teachers have it so good with all these teachers on social media. Oh the teacher I could have been when I first began teaching!
I want to see the world! I went to Hawaii two years ago and that gave me the travel bug. I don't have specific places in mind. I just want to see it all!!
Bottom line: I want to enjoy life. I don't want finances to be a reason why I can't do something or go somewhere. I dream of the freedom Teachers Pay Teachers can provide me.
What are your dreams?
