If I could do anything or be anything in the world, I would still be a teacher. I love my job and I love my students and I think I have a great gig going. However, if I am able to dream a little bit, I would like to have an administrative assistant to take care of all of the paperwork, grading and copying I have to do. That, in my opinion is the worst part of teaching.
I would also like to work part time (on a full time salary, of course!) so that I could have the best of both worlds; teach and spend more time with my littles. If I could dream a little more, I would love for my school to have the funding to send myself and my students on a mission trip every year. It would be awesome to have the capabilities and the financing to go help in disaster relief areas and underdeveloped countries.
Dreaming a little more…I would like to spend my summers working as a camp counselor for disadvantages or special needs children. I would love to see these kids have a real camp experience and be included to the maximum extent. There are so many opportunities for the average run-of-the-mill child, but not enough for those who either can’t afford camp or can’t find a camp that fits the need of the child.
Finally, if teaching wasn’t an option, I would like to work at an art museum…because, obviously…art is awesome.
