So I sat down and started thinking...why did I start posting activities and lessons to TPT and what can my TPT earnings help me do?
1. Share and connection with other educators:
This was the true reason I started on TPT! I really want to be able to share activities with other educators. I feel it is better to share with others than to reinvent the wheel all by yourself. This quote says it best:
We all work so hard for our students so that they can explore the world and become life long learners. If something works for your students, then I feel as educators we should share that with other teachers so that other kids can benefit as well. I find that lessons that are hands on and encourage children to collaborate are the best for my students. When I create a lesson that works and is engaging, what better place to share than on my blog or TPT!
2. Save for my daughter's education:
Higher education is important to both my husband and I so we started saving for our little girl's education way before she was even born. Any extra income that can help me save for her college, to allow her a world of opportunities, I am all about!
3. Buy a house:
Living in Northern Virginia definitely has it's advantages but the cost of homes is not one of them...the average home in our area is quite pricey! So pricey, that a lot of the teachers that work in my county don't live in the county. My dream is that money earned from TPT can help us afford a comfortable home in our area and also allow us to pay off our mortgage quickly.
Thanks for stopping by to read all about my dreams! I would love to hear if you have any of the same dreams, so feel free to comment below!
