As a child we say we want to be a fireman or a singer etc... What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a teacher. I'm not, but I still think I would want to be one. My daughter wants to be a dancer. I think very few people actually do what they wanted to do as a child.

In my childhood days,I wanted to become a forester.I was crazy to dive a jeep inside the forest and seeing wild animals in their natural habitat was a fascinating dream for me.But I didn't grew up like that.Sad to say,i didn't even attempted for that.I think most of us are content with the dreams and so this irony.Cheers!

as a child i wanted to be so many things and i guess, i still want to be some of those now. :) among my dreams were to be a teacher, a painter, a writer, an actress, a singer, an astronomer, a ninja (hehe). in addition to that i also want to become a staff of mythbusters, a photographer, and a hippie. :) although none of which have yet come true, i am a little bit of all of them. i do like photography, i write, i am in a band, i have become a teacher even once in my life, and becoming a hippie isn't all that difficult. :) i'm still waiting for my ninja skills though.

I think I wanted to be about a million different things when I was little. I too wanted to be a teacher at one point. I also had this really awesome bus driver in elementary school. She made me want to be a bus driver when I grew up because she was so nice. My sister always wanted to be make believe things. One year she wanted to be a mermaid and the next she wanted to be a unicorn. It was really cute.

I guess a lot of little girls want to be teachers when they grow up. Your sister never became a mermaid or unicorn, right? LOL! Thanks for the response!

Before, I always wanted to be a teacher. But now, its the least one I would like to be. Haha. I am addicted to computer and providing Technical Support now. But I'd be more than willing to teach, given the chance.
