Not A Teacher

Chase has been working on a school project. He and his team had to teach a third grade class about how the Native American Indians of the Northwest build shelters and gathered food. He came up with a really great lesson plan. And then as an activity at the end had the kids make Tee pees with a pencil and flour tortilla. He was pretty excited when the day arrived to visit the school.

He came home that day looking totally worn out. I asked him how things went and he relayed the days events good and bad. Then with a smile he said, "I learned something today."

I asked him what that was.

His response..., "I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY don't want to be a teacher when I grow up!"

One profession down...lots to go.

As of right now he is still of the mind that he will be a marine biologist and part time dentist;-)

Thats hillarious! He has learned early what hard work it is to be a teacher. Part time dentist sounds much better

He could fix the teeth of the marine wildlife.
