“My favourite subjects are mathematics and English. I want to be a teacher when I grow up. Education gives me an opportunity to have a better life and will help me to look after my grandmother.
I Want To Be A Teacher When I Grow Up
I may not remember learning how to read, but I know it wasn’t difficult for me. My mother was an elementary school teacher, and I began my first years of school in the building she taught at. She was able to hand pick my teachers to make sure I had the best. Back then I loved school and everything that went with it. I loved learning about how the world worked. I sat transfixed in front of my teachers during read alouds and circle time. I became obsessed with Roald Dahl, and tried to read every one of his books. I must have read my favorite one, The Witches, over 15 times. While playing “school” with my friends and my siblings day after day, I was proud to declare, “I want to be a teacher when I grow up!”
She said: "I want to be a teacher when I grow up, because I want to teach children. Just as I want to learn, I know that when I grow up, there will be children who want to learn too.”
