I think I know what I want to do…

Like most kids, I’ve had dreams and hopes of what I wanted to be. The first thing I ever wanted to be was a teacher because I had some really great teachers. Later, I decided that I wanted to be a doctor, a surgeon, a veterinarian, an astronaut, a paleontologist, you name it.

I remember when I turned x-year-old, I knew that whatever I chose to do, whatever I ended up doing, I wanted to help people. My dad was a nurse and that’s what he did for a living. My mom was a homemaker and she did so much for my dad and I. I knew that I wouldn’t feel fulfilled and satisfied unless I was helping people too.

Fast forward some years, I go to college, get a degree in Communications, and start teaching online.

What I’ve discovered about myself is that I love being in the education field. I love being in school. If I had it my way, I would love to just stay in school and learn. If school wasn’t so darn expensive, then I would just opt to be a perpetual student. The thrill that I get from being in a classroom — rather online or in-classroom — is like no other.

I want to stay in the classroom setting, but would love to get paid for doing it of course. I could be a classroom teacher but I’d rather work one-on-one with students. I’d love to help high school students talk about college and their future. I’d love to help students who are having trouble with bullying or a bad grade. I’d love to just be there, a comforting presence for kids who are just trying to discover life.

I think I want to be a school counselor. I think that is the hard part. Deciding what you want to be, I mean.

The next part is deciding what graduate school to do. If you have any ideas, then please feel free to comment below.

Please help me grow!

  1. hardest thing in the world is to know what to know and what to ignore, if you know what to do the it means you know what to know and that’s a great thing.
