I really don't think a social worker is the career for me, even if I did promise granny...
Mama, I don't want to be a social worker anymore, is that okay?
Of course it is, find where your heart is and choose from there.
Okay girls! This is how this move is done! Watch me first
Me, sitting in class worrying about my chosen career path. To clear up, I had promised my Granny before she passed away that I would become a social worker like I planned on becoming. (She would love that I'm becoming a teacher, though.)
Okay Tyler, what word is this?
I talked to my mom about it when I got home and she comforted me that I could change my path if I wanted to.
University of South Alabama Acceptance Letter
I've been on my high school's flag team for 4 years, and I was captain the last year of it. That really helped me realize how much I loved helping people while I was teaching them.
Well, what about a teacher? You're great with kids and I've seen you teach others.
Teachers don't make enough money, though! Don't do that!
Mrs. Bentley, Im so confused about what I want to do. Do you have any suggestions?
I also mentored 1st graders in reading at the elementary school down the road from my high school during my first semester of senior year. This just made me realize how much I loved kids and seeing their excitement to learn new things.
I was so confused as to what I was doing career-wise that when I applied and was accepted to the University of South Alabama, I couldn't be happy about it because I put my major in as "undecided". That made me feel worse as I looked at it.
I ended up discussing my careers choices with my English teacher, Mrs. Bentley and she suggested I become a teacher and that really got me thinking because I wanted to become one when I was younger, but the opinions and critisism of others always stopped me.
