I almost did not choose teaching as my career. I filled out forms to do medicine – and even went for the application interview. My desire to be a pediatrician was not realised as I was not accepted into medical school. Among the choices that lay before me were accounting, law, and teaching. I chose teaching.
Do I regret choosing education? No. This profession has given me the chance to work with children and help them. It is possible for each school year to be different so the chances of boredom settling in is rare. I do not sit at a desk the entire day in front of the computer but instead have the chance to go outside for a part of the day. The day can sometimes be challenging and there are always children who keep me on my toes.
I almost did not become a teacher and yet I cannot imagine doing anything else. Except writing. 🙂
