I know many teachers, like my mother, know they want to be teachers from the time they are little. Growing up with an educator for a parent, being a teacher was the last thing I wanted to do. My dream for the longest time was to become a pilot. Life happened though! No flight schools near where I live and the cost was just too much. Once I got to college, I realized I wanted to work with people. So I narrowed things down to nursing, social work, law enforcement, or education. Unfortunately, I can't handle seeing people in pain so nursing went out the window lol I do think things worked out. I love my profession. So if I wasn't teaching, I'd be a social worker...or maybe writing! If only I wasn't so exhausted when I come home from work.
