A job can be simply defined as a regular activity performed in exchange for payment. I believe that today you have to be extremely gifted at a job in order to be able to stay with it your entire working career. Nowadays many people are thrown from job to job seeking stability in their lives. Almost everyone enters the work force to try and provide whatever they can for their family. It’s hard to compete in today’s occupations with more and more people striving to get to the top, to be the boss with the newly remodeled home, 2.5 kids, golden retriever, cabin in the mountains, and Mercedes Benz. People feel a great achievement when they have reached the point where they can provide these material things to their families no matter how they do it or what they have to go through to get it, whether it be working long hours or cheating the stock market. Unfortunately it’s the same people who forget who got them to the point where they can afford their Mercedes Benz. I feel that credit should not only be given to family, friends, and pastors, rabbis or priests, but also to teachers. Any school could always use another good teacher, one who truly cares about what they teach and who they are teaching to, which is why I want a job that will not only fulfill my life but also the lives of others around me. My dream job is to become a teacher.I come from a long line of teachers, my great grandmother, my grandmother, mother, older sister, and soon my older brother. A part of me has also always wanted to be a high-powered, kick-butt businesswoman. But, I always knew that no matter now big my office was or how much I got paid would never match the feeling I could get at the end of the day when I know I made a difference in a child’s life. It’s my dream to help make a difference in people’s lives at an early age where it will impact the rest of their lives, even if it is something simple like the Union defeated the Confederacy in the civil war. If I teach a child who goes on to be a lawyer or professional football player and they can still remember that one fact, I will be proud. I want to be able to share my knowledge with kids who more than deserve the best education they could possibly receive. I have realized this through many days of going to school with my sister and helping her in her classroom. She teaches in a neighborhood that has less fortunate kids but that by no means they should receive less of an education than the kid who receives a BMW for their 16th birthday. I am very fortunate that my parents decided to raise their children in a community with great schools. I have been challenged and have learned a lot and I feel that it’s my turn to return the favor like my sister, to share what I have learned with the future or our world.Even though I was probably born with a white board marker in hand, my dream of becoming a teacher doesn’t have to do with the fact I have come from generations and generations of teachers. It has to do with the fact that I couldn’t see myself being happy doing anything else. I honestly believe that God has pointed me in the direction of teaching and many times I forget why until I go help my sister in her class and it all comes back again. I can’t wait to be in her position and have a class or multiple classes of my own. Even if I inherited an insane amount of money or was offered a job doing nothing and getting paid for it, I wouldn’t do it because teaching is my passion and my dream.
