Week 6 #8WeeksofSummer – Professional Goals

This post is week 6 of 8 in the #8WeeksofSummer Blog Challenge for educators.

Share your current professional goals.

I enjoyed Penny’s challenging post and big idea dreams for what is happening with education. I am always excited to try new things and have always been an early adopter. However, I’m not often the innovator.

Last spring was no exception. I worked my tail off daily and late into the night. I found myself in a position to be able to help families and teachers navigate through various websites when we were quickly moved to emergency remote learning. It was exhilarating and challenging. I was happy though that I was not an administrator and having to make the decisions to figure out how we were going to manage all this.

Right now for summer, I’m enjoying some relaxing time and yet, I also need to get working seriously on a TESOL certificate I already paid for. So, right now, that’s all I’ve got. My professional goal is to finish that TESOL advanced practitioner certificate so I can hone my skills to teach English to speakers of other languages. Then, I have a goal to be able to use my new skills.

I’ll be retiring and moving back to the U.S. when my husband’s work is finished here and it’s safe to return. I’m not ready to retire, so I hope there will be some online teaching opportunities in my future, as well. I’m open!

  1. Good luck with everything! I am sure that you’ll find your new job / skills very interesting!


    1. Thank you, Theodora. I do look forward to gaining some more insight into what I’ve been attempting to do for several years!


  2. Good luck! I imagine studying for the TESOL will keep you (temporarily) busy.
