My career goal is to become an elementary school teacher. I feel that this career would be very rewarding, especially since I would be teaching young children not only basic academic skills that they will need to know in order to function in the world around them, but also to inspire these children to be productive members of society. These children will play a major role in how our future turns out. Their inspirations, driven by their learning perspective, may lead to societal improvements. I am currently a college junior, so I need to continue to work hard to finish my degree program. I am striving to maintain as close to a 4.0 GPA as possible. This requires many hours of studying, reading, making observations, and practicing related skills in order for this to occur. I plan to devote at least 4-5 hours of my time to each class per week, performing the various tasks that I’ve previously mentioned. I want to spend more volunteer time in the classroom with children to gain field experience. This may be difficult to do as I am enrolled as a full-time student, but I would like to aim for at least 30 hours per semester. I am aware of all of the hard work that it will take to fulfill this dream, but for me, it will be well worth it in the end.
