When I woke up on Tuesday, September 5th, I was ecstatic to finally start working with the students at Prescott Elementary. I have been working with kids for the past four years and I couldn’t wait to meet new children. Even though I just considered teaching a few months ago, I have always loved working with kids. Ever since I was a cheerleading coach for young girls I knew I wanted to interact with kids in some way as a career. Before teaching, I though about being a pediatrician. After I tossed that idea around, I thought about being a physical therapist with a specialization in pediatrics. Then finally, I thought of being a pediatric nurse, I really wanted to work with infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in the hospital. But then I realized that all those science courses that the medical field entails are not for me. This is when I was enlightened and became interested in teaching. …show more content…
During my past job as a summer camp counselor, I especially enjoyed working one on one with a child, whether it was because they struggled in a skill or because they felt left out. I really like making connections and establishing personal relationships with the youngsters. Teaching also appealed to me because I would get most summers off and if I wanted to start a family some day, I would be working at the same time as my kids would be at school. On the other hand, though, the least appealing thing about teaching to me is having to motivate kids who may be stubborn and don’t want to participate. I also see it being challenging to deal with a child who tends to put the other students down or may bully other students, but I know that I will come across this situation many times in my
Although more than ten years can pass prior to the moment one first calls oneself a pediatrician, the hard work and dedication pays off when one saves the first life a helpless child. Throughout the long process of applying for school after school, obtaining scholarship after scholarship, and proving one’s medical skill with each and every exam, one must feel true bliss when grasping the newly received medical license in one’s hands. A career in pediatrics will allow one to save the lives of young people who haven’t yet truly lived.
I know now what it means to be a Child Life Specialist. I thought as a teacher I would be making the most impact with children and families, but this position makes an impact with them on an entirely different level. I always hear people say to be a teacher you have to love children and love what you do. But I know now that to be a Child Life Specialist you have to do the very same. After speaking to Ms. Tiller, I told my granddaughter how proud I was of her taking on this task because it takes a special person to do this job. I am not sure that this position would be for me, even though as a minister I help people cope with everyday life and death issues all the time. But the assignments for this week has made me expand on the things that I can do to utilize my degree. I think that many people do not realize the many opportunities in the early childhood/child development field; and I am glad to say that I am no longer one of those people because the opportunities are
Kids aren’t like adults, their bodies are growing and changing constantly and require specific knowledge to understand. I find it interesting learning about children’s mindsets and how their bodies are different from adults. I have always had a passion for working with kids and anytime that I have gotten an opportunity to be around kids and working with them I take it. I love being able to help kids feel better and to see them develop physically and mentally throughout time. Seeing a kids’ reaction to learning something new or feeling better is a highlight to my day which is why I chose to pursue my career in pediatrics as a pediatric nurse.
I have always been interested in working with children. Becoming a teacher has always been a potential career path for me; however, I recently discovered the position of a child life specialist which has further broadened my interest for a future career. Although they are not educators in school, they are extremely important since they are the educators for children and their families to help overcome difficult and/or challenging life events. As a child life specialist I will be teaching children and families in hospitals how to cope with their diagnoses, how a surgery day will go, how certain lifestyles will have to change, and much more.
There are are many different careers in the medical world, my favorite being a pediatrician. I have always loved being around little kids and making them laugh which is one of the main reasons why I want to be a pediatrician. I’ve wanted to be a pediatrician since I was 11 years old; many of my friends would laugh because they didn’t think I was capable of becoming a doctor, but like my mom says “when you want something, don’t give up until you have it”. A pediatrician is a doctor who treats infants,children, and young adults. They diagnose and treat diseases, injuries and much more(asthma, allergies,etc). But being a pediatrician requires so much dedication and hard work , and I know it’s not going to be easy but I’m willing to do it.
Pediatrics can be a tiresome and stressful job, but the feeling one gets after seeing a smile on a child’s face makes all the difference in the world. To know that one has made an impact on a child makes a twenty-four hour shift at a hospital or studying for a board test worth it. Just like the rest of the world, pediatricians strive to make an impression. Their legacy is the hope inspired in every sick or suffering child’s heart. At the end of the day, changing a child’s life for the better is the greatest reward any pediatrician can receive.
Many people in this world want to make a difference in life. However, most people do not want to put in all the effort that it takes to do so. The job of a pediatrician is life-changing to many. Unfortunately, it takes drive and effort that many people do not have, to become a pediatrician. A pediatrician’s job is a highly-skilled and interesting job because he or she has the privilege to deal with and help as many children as possible.
I have known from an early age that I’ve wanted to become a doctor. Helping people has always been a passion of mine. When I was younger, I wanted to be a veterinarian. However, after working with young children I have found that I love working with them, and have a connection with children. Currently, I am interested in becoming either a neonatologist or a general pediatrician so I can continue to work with young children.
Ever since I was a young girl, Nursing has always been an area for which I have had a passion. As far back as I can remember, whenever someone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, my response was to be a children’s nurse and to help others. Child nursing is a very challenging and demanding course, however the rewards would make it all worth it, and I am ready to embark on this career path. I have observed the devotion and humanity of child nurses who go further than just treating young patients; they genuinely wanted to make them happy and as comfortable as possible in difficult times. I found this very inspiring, and it is the main reason why I am immensely inspired to train in this field in order to be in a position to make a lasting difference in the lives of young people who depend on us.
Every teacher has this potential whether they are aware of it or not. I have been a teacher for nine years in early childhood education and within those nine years I have become very aware of how powerful the smallest act of caring can turn a person’s life around or even just make someone’s day a little better. Being a preschool teacher has brought me great pleasure to my life simply brightening a child’s day and knowing that I am making a difference in their life. Through my journey as a teacher I have thought about how I can advance in my career field and still be active with children on a daily basis and continue making a difference in each child’s life as well as their parents. With plenty of thought and research I have come to the conclusion and gained the interest to become a preschool and childcare director.
Though the experiences I have had with working with younger children I have come to love the teaching profession. I love seeing when people understand knowledge that they need to know for their later lives. This something that I have wanted to do since I was in 1st
In the future, I hope to pursue my career dream of becoming a pediatrician. Pediatricians can be identified individuals who specialize in giving medical care to children and adolescents between infancy to adulthood at eighteen years of age. I became inspired to become a pediatrician due to my immense love of children. Perhaps I have an innate intuition for taking care of people being that I have always felt that I excel at taking care of others. The idea of taking care of others truly makes me feel that I serve a purpose, not only to better the life of myself but the life of others. Therefore, I believe that becoming a pediatrician will help me combine the best of both worlds into a career that I adore and cherish.
I’ve learned so much more than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester. I feel like because of how much I have learned in my observations, I am able to get a taste of what my role in the classroom as a teacher is or will be. I’ve seen how the teachers in my classroom interact with the students, and how well they know these students as individuals. I’ve been surprised and mind-blown by the intelligence these 3 and 4 year-olds possess and how these teachers are able to foster and care for these young minds. One thing that I’ve always known is that I want to be a teacher, preferably 3rd or 4th grade. At one point in my life I did question being a preschool teacher. I came into the CI 295 hoping that these classroom observations would help me realize if I want to be a classroom teacher or not and it did. After observing the PSU preschool this year, I finally realized that preschool probably isn’t what I want to do. I think I would feel more comfortable teaching a 3rd or 4th grade
For most of my college career I worked as a nanny, assisting families in fostering a safe and fun learning environment for their children. Playing with them, reading stories, doing arts and crafts and running around at the park were among the many activities that I engaged in. Through nannying, I came to the realization that I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to work with children and toward their well-being; this was what originally sparked my interest in child welfare. Although I was set on working toward helping children, I was not entirely sure how or in what setting I wanted to work with them in.
