2011 Goals

Visit our current cycle at our new home, 30Goals.com

Over 9000 educators have joined the The 30 Goals Challenge since January 2010. You have the opportunity to join our community in accomplishing 1 to 30 goals throughout the year. These are short-term goals we reflect on and see how they help us aim towards long-term goals to make us better educators. We support each other through social networks- our Facebook groupYoutube,  Twitter (#30GoalsEdu), and blogs.

The 2011 Cycle

Lisa Dabb’s (@TeachingwthSoul) collaborated with me in this cycle to support new teachers accomplishing the 30 goals. You can find her podcasts and posts at Teaching With Soul. Lisa was an inspiration and is known for mentoring new teachers regularly through #NTChat. This year we also included vodcasts (video reflections) and podcasts. Listen to these for free!

The 2011 Challenges

Congratulations on endearing this journey with me. Here is a list of all the goals we have accomplished together for this cycle.


  1. Just started a new website (mrsreckling.com)
    I think I am a bit late, but would love to join the challenge… this is just what I need to get things going 🙂 I am assuming the order I go about the challenge doesn’t matter…. Here we go! 🙂

  2. Hello Shelly!

    Never too late?! LOL

    “not enough time” and “too busy” just don’t cut it for excuses anymore — I witness too many others who have ‘lots on their plate’ and still manage. With so much inspiration around, I should be able to come through this time?!

    Hoping to review 2010’s 30 challenges and then join in here, too — learning and contributing as I go!


  3. […] The 30 Goals Challenge- Over 7000 educators worldwide have participated in accomplishing goals to transform their classrooms and impact their students. Educators who join receive a free ebook and have access to several videos and podcasts to help them achieve their goals. More importantly they get to reflect upon these goals on Twitter (#30Goals), Facebook, or on their blogs and receive the support of 1000s of educators also accomplishing these goals. […]

  4. […] The 30 Goals Challenge- Over 7000 educators have participated in the 1st and 2nd cycles of this global challenge for educators with the premise of getting you to complete 30 professional development goals in one year. These are short-term goals, such as guest posting, changing your classroom environment, providing effective feedback, establishing an online presence, and engaging with parents. We begin the 2012 cycle this week. To keep up to date, please join the 30 Goals Facebook group or you can easily follow through Twitter by checking out the #30goals hashtag. You don’t even have to have a Twitter account to get the tweets. You can easily subscribe through RSS. […]

  5. Goal 28, is a challenge near and dear to my heart. I also believe that many problems which arise on social media are dealt with in response to a problem. I would like to see a greater proactive education to help prevent and lessen the number of issues associated with the use of social media by students.
