  • I wanted to be a teacher, and although I'm not a certified school teacher, I've done a lot of teaching.

    I taught the gifted and talented program one year at our elementary. I taught art enrichment in our local elementary schools, I teach sewing lessons, and I homeschooled my boys, so in a way.....yes!

  • I've wanted to be a equine veterinarian since I was 2. I am now going to college, married, 1 toddler, and another on the way, to earn my degree as a veterinarian of medicine (vm) for horses. I'm still several years off before that happens, but it will all be worth it once I'm done.

  • A devoted mother- yes! A veterinarian- no, but I gave up on that dream quickly when I realized it would probably involve euthanasia and dissection of dead things in school. A pediatrician- same thing, knew I loved kids but realized the actual job description and backed out. A teacher- Backed out of that because I didn't like the school system, but recently resumed the dream after deciding that I could be an educator without being in the public schools. Currently getting my degree. A social worker or child psychologist- planning to double major or go back for multiple degrees. A wildlife rehabilitation specialist- someday <3.
