"So You're Thinking About Being a Teacher"

So I was just looking through my blogs and realized that I hadn't updated about something very important in my life. Here recently, I have really been considering going to school for education. I'm very passionate about learning and I've been tutoring a lady in vocabulary for a few weeks now. I look forward to my time with her each week. She is a very special lady.

I've also decided to take the teaching thing slow, I have a tendency to jump head first into something I'm excited about and then when it's not what I wanted...I become very disappointed. So I finish school in June, I'm planning to take a year off after that to work and hopefully get in with the local school system to substitute teach to see if this is really the path I want to go down. As far as schools go, I'm really considering Piedmont College. I know that it is a great school in education and if I went there John and I would probably move to Demorest, so it would be a new place with new experiences...being near the mountains doesn't hurt either;)If you pray, please pray for me on this, it's a very important decision and I want to do what God wants me to do. Thanks!


  1. I think you'd make a good teacher, and to be honest, I've wondered at times why you hadn't thought of it yet. I don't like to mention things like that to people because I believe they should go for their dreams first and foremost.

  2. Well truth be told, I loved playing teacher as a kid. As I got older, I kind of got interested in other things and didn't really feel that it was an option. I guess my mind is more open now, so that's why it feels more available to me, if that makes sense.


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
