Do you feel like you were made for your profession?

This is something I just thought about the other day. Growing up, I liked to play a lot of pretend games. However, I really liked to pretend I was a teacher more than anything. I just loved pretending I was teaching other people. So, the older I got, I of course thought about a lot of different jobs but the one I really started to settle on was a teacher. I'm in college now taking classes to become a preschool teacher. I just feel like this is my thing. I really enjoy working with children and coming up with new ideas to use within the classroom. I find it really fun and enjoyable. I just feel like I was made to be a teacher. Do you feel like you were made to be what you are today? Did your passion for your line of work being when you were a child or did you realize it much later in life?

I actually to feel like I was made for my jobs. I have worked as journalist/editor, later as IT Specialist and IT Manager as well as Computer Graphics Specialist. For my IT and graphics engagements, I never had to go to school to qualify, but simply taught myself and became an expert at it.

[i]Hi high, When I was a child, I use to act like an actress and maybe part of me wanted to become one..LOL! But, I never had the chance to be in the field..LOL! Then, when I will play in a group, I am always the Teacher also, but, I never think I will become one!LOL! I was teaching for 9 years and I love it! I am hoping to get a job again!I quit when I got married and now I am planning to get a job soon! It's wonderful to be around with amazing learners![/i]

I have no particular passion for a profession. I love to craft and I wish I was one of those that could turn a hobby into a career.

I am a special education teacher and it's what I was put here to do. I love my job and it suits me perfectly. I wanted to be a nurse when I was little, but that wasn't my calling. I think that I have truly found my place.
