Teachers’ Summer Bucket List

First things first… let's do a happy dance because you are on summer break!

Second, what are you doing this summer?

Big plans? Little plans?

Every summer, I feel like I start off with great plans with all these ideas of everything I want to accomplish, but then at the end of the summer, I feel like I didn't get anything done. Who's with me?

So, I have decided I really want to enjoy my summer break by setting some goals. Goals? Ha! That just sounds to formal… and not fun… so we'll just call it a teachers' summer bucket list!

A summer bucket list is a perfect way to jot down some fun ideas to enjoy your summer break! When you look back at the end of the summer, you'll have a whole list of awesome activities you got to do!
