Hmm.. I've been thinking about career choices lately.
I want a job where I can make an impact on the world, let my personality shine, be a leader, make someone happy, and help others.
I think that "teacher" fits into this category. :)
Looking back, I can name a couple teachers that were just so incredibly awesome.. It was an instant *click* with them. They loved ALL their students, even the ones who were causing trouble in class :) they were patient, kind, and every student loved them. I can honestly say that Mr. Bittner & Mrs. Baker were definitely the best teachers I've had so far.
Mrs. Baker was my English teacher in 8th grade and like I said, instant *click*!!! She was funny and made learning fun :) She helped every student with what they needed no matter what. The classroom was filled with laughter (even on testing days).
Mr. Bittner was my Science teacher in 8th grade :) He totally understood ME! He was/is a non-denominational pastor and made learning science so easy!! On the very first day he noticed the "Pentecostal" look lol!! He also headed up a class called Leadership (I think??). We decorated for events, helped teachers in other classes. So many memories :)
I wish more teachers were like them. I wish more students appreciated these teachers too.
What I realized is that I want to make a change in other kids lives like they did mine. I want to be THAT teacher everyone remembers and visits whenever they are passing by the classroom/school. I can picture it already! *sigh* It just seems RIGHT.
