Since blogging this summer, I really enjoy joining a great Linky Party! (even if my teenage daughter likes to make fun of me, I know it just really means she loves me) So I have decided to join Janaye at Tales of Frogs and Cupcakes for her My Teacher Story Linky Party.
So here is my Teacher Story: I remember wanting to be a teacher or a ballerina when I was 4 years old. (good thing I chose being a teacher considering my coordination and gracefulness) I was the oldest of 3 girls. Being the oldest had its advantages. I would make my younger sisters "play school" all of the time. Of course, since I was the oldest, I was the teacher and they were the students. I would make them do worksheets. Sometimes my mom would buy me textbooks at garage sales and I would assign my sisters pages to do in them. I also did a lot of babysitting when I was a teenager. Then I was a camp counselor during the summer between my senior year of high school and freshman year of college. (If you know how much I love the "outdoors and nature" you would understand how much I love working with kids to have taken this job.) After so much time playing school and working with kids, I knew when I went to college I would become a teacher. Lucky for me, writing lesson plans and working with kids came very naturally to me. So my road to becoming a teacher wasn't a very exciting one and didn't have too many twists or turns, but I know it is my calling. I feel truly blessed that I can wake up every day and do something that I love to do. Thank you for taking the time to visit with me today.
