What I Feel Called To Do:

My whole life I have always liked working with kids. It is probably due to the fact that I have a little brother who is five years younger than me. At first,when I found out I was going to have a little brother, I was very upset that I would not be the youngest anymore. I then realized I would have someone to boss around and i was happy. Growing up with such an age difference between us, most people would like we never had anything in common. Actually I was closest to him, in comparison to my two older sibling.

We always would play outside together with our neighbors and we still have a strong relationship even though he's in the 7th grade and I'm in college. Senior year when applying to college and trying to pick a major, I thought about all the years I used to play with my brother, the neighbors, and my little cousins. I realized that I love working with children. So I thought about all the career paths involving working with kids, and that is why I chose the major early elementary education. I know that after college I'm going to either continue into grad school, or get right to work in teaching. I'm gong to want to love the job I have and I know that if I am going to be a teacher that I will truly love my job.

I have gone to Catholic school my whole life, and in high school our religion teachers would always ask us "what is your calling?", in the religious sense. I have had many years to think about my calling, or my vocation. Loving to work with children made my decision with vocation very easy. I believe that God is calling me to a mother. Having as strong of a faith that I do, has lead me to this conclusion. All my life I've loved working and being around children, I can't wait until I am done with school and I can fulfill my calling.
