I am a business education teacher in a middle school, and I focus on career exploration & technology with my students. When they first come into my class, they all pretty much want one of the following careers:
doctor, lawyer, professional athlete, interior designer, wedding planner, video game designer, vet, marine biologist, or crime scene investigator
I think it’s so important that they be exposed to different options and know what’s available to them!
Throughout my life I have wanted to be a….
1. TEACHER. Duh. I played school hard core as a kiddo….made schedules, worksheets, nametags, graded papers- the whole shebang. Way to make all your dreams come true, Danielle.
2. News broadcaster. I practiced a lot in front of our video camera at home (seriously, we have dozens of home videos of me reporting made up events) and on the Cedar Hill Elementary School News Broadcast. I think I missed my calling.
3. Dentist. This one was short-lived in college when I realized I HATE science. And I didn’t want to be in school for forever. Yea, that was a fail.
Now, after being in the big girl world for a little while, I think I would make an excellent….
STAY AT HOME MOM. Except I don’t have any kids. (Yet.)
So, here’s my new list. I think I would like to be a yoga instructor, a children’s book author, or a professional grocery shopper. Yea, I made that last one up, BUT, I know lots of people HATE going to the grocery store. Wouldn’t it be cool to hire me to come to your house and go through your frig and pantry with you and help you analyze your food choices? Then I could talk to you about how to eat more healthy diet and go to the grocery store with you to help you make smarter choices. I can even do all your shopping FOR you if you prefer!
I think it sounds brilliant….what do you think??
What did you want to be when you were little???
