Almost everybody makes a choice of a
career at least once in a lifetime. We think about pros and cons of some
job, think about our dreams, sometimes realise them, sometimes not... A lot of
things should be weighted before coming to a decision. And even after starting
working we sometimes continue to think: was it a right choice? Would it have
been better if I had chosen anything else?
course such thoughts come to my mind from time to time too. If I hadn’t chosen
the career of a teacher what would I have chosen?
I’ll write about my dream. I’ve been always dreaming of becoming a
stewardess. It’s so romantic to fly, to visit different countries, not to stay
in one place for long, to meet different people, to feel free, to feel
like a bird... A lot of advantages. But what about disadvantages? There are
also a lot. You will have problems with your health because of changes of
time zones, an unregulated workday. You won’t be able to pay necessary
attention to your family. And it’s simply dangerous. Do I want to have
these problems? No, thank you. They aren’t romantic at all.
it’s better to become an accountant? It’s an asked-for job, usually well-paid,
it can give me stability and confidence in future. But the problem is that I’m
not very good at maths. And also I feel bored when I have to count, count,
count...I think it can drive me
mad if there are only figures around me.
No, no, I should choose something else.
I have one more dream to become a doctor, a pediatrician. Now I understand that
it’s very important to be aware of diseases and our health. Especially about
children’s health... I have a child and I’m worried that there are things I
might not know. I try to read more. I try to understand. I could have been a good
children’s doctor... But now it’s too late. To be a doctor you are to study for
a long time, to practice a lot, you should devote your life to this job. But
I've already chosen my career...
Yes, I’m very happy that I’ve devoted my life to teaching! I’m sure that some
years ago when I made up my mind about my future profession I wasn’t mistaken!
I don’t want to change anything. I just feel that my place is in the classroom
with my students. But not in the sky, not in an office, not in a doctor’s consulting
room. Let all these places be just my dreams!
