When you were a little kid what did you want to be when you grew up? I knew from the ripe old age of 4 that I was going to be a doctor. There are pictures of me on my 4th birthday with this cute little doctor's kit. I had glasses and a pen and a stethoscope that all sat in a nice little doctor's bag. From then on, I was going to be a doctor.
Somewhere around middle school, I figured out that there were some drawbacks to being a doctor. There was lots and lots of school, and lots and lots of money involved. Not to mention, you'd have to survive anatomy classes that involved dissecting things. ( I hated 7th grade science because we had to dissect a worm. How was I going to study a cadaver in med school?)
I was lucky that when I was in college, I sort of fell into a career I really enjoyed. I started off majoring in computer science, and ended up taking a class called math for elementary teachers. With that class I had to do some work experience. I ended up working at a preschool, changed my degree to Early Childhood Education and started teaching preschool after I graduated. From there I moved into nannying and the rest is history!
