My students want to be a basketball player, police officer, teacher, mom or dad, football player.

Great choices!

I have one student that wants to be a Diva- she told me she needs to” work on her walk and attitude”. Most of my students want to be teachers or doctors.

Teachers need to check out the Upromise CC skills builders great lessons to have on a day before a long weekend.

I think I want to be a diva too, Carrie! Not much chance of that though.

Those choices were good, but I do have a student who wants to be a bartender. Oh, and don’t forget, the ever popular dolphin trainer

My kiddos want to be super heroes. Right now Spider man is in the lead. The girls princeess. Love the u promise.

A class full of superheroes. What could be better?!

My students want to be police officers, singers, teachers, scientists, doctors, nurses, and stay at home moms.

I have a classroom full of future zookeepers and astronauts!

Awesome! You must be doing some STEM education in your classroom!

A lot of my kiddos want to be dancers, teachers, and football players. So fun!

I have a lot of princesses (we have a class full of girls this year), and one lonely truck driver. But the most humbling one of all is the little one who said “Teacher, I want to grow up to be a teacher, too!” When asked what kind, she said “I want to teach kids like my brother” (a special needs student) So sweet!

My students have lots of career dreams, police officers, football players, nurses, doctors and a Momma. Love them all , because all of them are important in our world!

Couldn’t agree more, Barbara!

After studying fossils, many of my students are interested in paleontology and geology!

I have students who want to be a geologist, volcanologist, astronaut, and even a fashion designer.

My preschoolers talk about cowgirls, princesses, video game characters, race car drivers and teachers.

Many of my students want to be teachers just like me and many others say they wish to be firefighters.

My students want to be zoologists, paleontologists, singers, teachers, fire fighters, and veterinarians!

We have teachers, doctors, firemen, police officers.

My PreK class wants to do it all: Police Officers, Astronauts, Elsa and one wants to be President!

My students want to be doctors and teachers.

Way to go, Kristi!

My students would like to be mommies, photographers, police officers, teachers, a singer, and a monster truck driver. They all say that they are going to college! Hooray!

My students want to be lots of different things….they said fire fighter, police officer, teacher, mommy, cheerleader, ball players. Too many to list!

My students want to be such a variety of things when they grow up. I love to spur their ideas and let them know they can reach for the moon!!

My students want to be lots of things when they grow up. I’ve heard doctor, police officer, and professional singer to name a few!

A few of my girls want to become teachers. Most of my class want to follow in their parents career path. One little girl will take over her grandma’s bakery.

Several want to be Minions!
