Summer #BlogChallenge Day 222
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Gosh, I’m one of the boring ones. For as long as I can remember (as far back as 1st grade), I’d always wanted to be a teacher…really! I loved when a teacher asked me to help him or her with extra work, grading papers, etc. Looking back now, I probably looked like a huge dork LOL, but that didn’t phase me, I guess. I just really liked it, I can’t even explain why. I’ve also always had a great affinity for school supplies and office supply stores. Back to school shopping was sooo much fun; not because of the new clothes, but because of all the new supplies! Even until now, you can find me making my way down the office supply aisle at whatever store I’m in at the time
And in case you didn’t know yet, I actually did become a teacher when I grew up! It took me a while, but I got there! I initially started college with a desire to teach high school English, so my declared major was English. After realizing that it was way too much literature for me, I left teaching altogether and switched to psychology (my other passion). And after taking a course in child psychology, I decided that I definitely wanted to work with children, so I switched majors (again!) to elementary education, and graduated with a degree in elementary education and a minor in psychology – the perfect balance!
After a few years of working in the public school system, I left that role to take on what I believe is the greatest job ever – stay-at-home-momma, and I’m thankful everyday that I’ve been blessed with the ability to do so (as I know that too many of our mommas don’t have that luxury).
So what did you want to be when you grew up? Did you actually pursue that career choice? If so, is it everything you thought it would be? If not, why not?
