I don't like today's NaBloPoMo prompt so I'm going to write on one of the January prompts from the SITSGirls:
What job did you dream about having when you were a growing up?
I wanted nothing more than to be a teacher. I would play school all the time. I even pretended I was making lesson plans and worksheets for my "students". As I got older I still believed I was supposed to be teaching, but thought it would be in a different setting than a school. When I graduated high school and began college my major was education, but after a brief period of being a substitute teacher and seeing what real teachers go through daily and talking to them about what it's like to teach in public school I became more convinced that my teaching setting would not be in a school.
I once mentioned on this blog that my major became journalism after one mass communications course, but being a teacher has never actually left my mind. I think that is one of the reasons why some of my favorite articles, blog posts, etc... have taught my readers how to do something. I foresee even more teaching in my future starting with more how to writing and hopefully some how to videos this year.
