  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.
