My Dream Job: The Journey to Becoming Mrs. Davis, Third Grade Teacher by Melinda Davis
In a few days my 5-year-old dream will become reality. There is no greater feeling than being proud of yourself. If you're a parent, like me, you may not experience this feeling often.
How often do you stop to be proud of YOU?
It was a great feeling laughing during my interview. Leaving the interview with wobbly legs, I hopped in my car with a huge smile and called my husband and then my sister. In that moment I realized everything everyone has ever said about me was true. I was already a teacher; I just needed students and a room.
Getting the phone call to teach a lesson wasn't so scary. It was teaching in front of 10 future colleagues that was, but I totally rocked my Earth Day lesson! After the lesson is when it hit me: I was proud of myself!
Next was a call to meet the superintendent, when I was offered a position and proudly accepted my dream job: third grade teacher for fall 2018!
And now I am anxiously waiting for September to meet my hive of buzzy bees. Until then, I'll be buzzy planning for my first day in third grade when I will be officially known as Mrs. Davis!
What is your dream? I hope you'll go for it like I did!
