    I always wanted to be a teacher for small kids and now I’m a daycare provider so I guess I got pretty close. I love my job but right now it’s very part time only 2 days a week and I miss my kids terribly. I need more kids! lol!! I’m going crazy!!!

    I always wanted to be a teacher. Sometimes I wanted to be a nurse TOO, or maybe a school nurse. Teacher is still what I’d like to be! I started tutoring kids when I was about 8 years old and pursued a degree in education for three years. Then I saw that the job of teaching can be really frustrating due to entrenched ideas and such, so I decided to find a way to get rich and open my own school and make an impact by developing better teaching methods. Well, I ended up in tax and international business. But I have always continued volunteer work in the schools and with education-oriented charities. And I really never gave up my dream of going back into teaching someday. It is the only thing I find thoroughly fulfilling and worthy of 100% of my creative energy.

    We all seem to be thinking alike. I also wanted to be a teacher. Either that or a lawyer. I feel you can be a teacher in a lot of ways. I did end up working in a school so in a way, I did teach.

    I wanted to be a doctor and later on in my childhood/young adulthood I wanted to be a psychologist. Whilst I didn’t formally become either – those two things have remained consistant in my life. They have saved my bacon so to speak!

    God put both in my heart for a reason, so that I could grasp both easily to cope with the life I now lead and to help others on their journey.

    P.S. Joy – I don’t know how it happened, but you weren’t on my blogroll. I fixed that! I kept wondering why it was I wasnt reading you daily…lol

    When I was little I wanted to be a teacher. Then I wanted to be in business.. I’m not either.. well i guess in a way I am both.. I’m a stay at home mom who is a teacher everyday and does business everyday as I deal with the finances of this house . ah.. lol

    You’re right Tired mom, when you are a stay at home mom you are not only a teacher but a doctor, cook, maid, taxi driver, and I’m sure there are many more!

    What I wanted to be changed as I grew up, but something medical was always in my mind. First it was a nurse, then a radiologist, then a neurologist. I’m a surgical tech now and love it so I think part of my dream came true. Someday I’ll go back for more, I just have to decide what the more will be!

  10. A teacher.

    So far I’ve been a tutor, a homeschooling parent, a GTF (graduate teaching fellow), a substitute teacher, and an amateur crochet instructor. But so far, I haven’t been the kind of teacher I’d always imagined, which is a high school teacher. Perhaps that is next on the list.

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian. It never happened. But I am happy with where I am now.

    I wanted to be a lawyer. I was forever arguing with the television over some injustice I had seen. Now that I know more about what lawyers do, I’m not interested in the job. Better to be a writer, where I can point out the injustices I’ve seen and bring them to the attention of my readers. Plus, I also get to write about fun stuff and make things up.

  13. Jane says:

    I also wanted to be a veterinarian. Being a farmer, I’m almost that. I can take care of every day things and only need to have the vet out for serious things. So, I guess I got my wish.

    I wanted to join a circus. Gladly, that never happened.
