  51. 51. My Dream<br />To serve, to help, to contribute to the future using carefully selected, polished, and refined skills, attitudes, and information, I dream.<br />To struggle with complex problems and to live with paradoxes, remaining undefeated and determined, I dream.<br />To see the sky, the moon, the ocean, and the stars in the smallestchild and the poorest parent, I dream.<br />To help that smallest child and poorest parent discover their ownunique  and special universe, I dream.<br />To grow each day more serene, more open to new perspectives, more willing to abandon personal opinions, I dream.<br />
  52. 52. To retire each night totally exhausted yet thoroughly fresh and refreshed, I dream.<br />To light candles, carry torches, run marathons, and catch tears, I dream.<br />To go upstream to sources and change flow and current as needed, I dream.<br />To create joyous, harmonious experiences with children usinginsights from observations and careful study, I dream.<br />To help children construct their own castles and pursue their own adventures, I dream.<br />To build self-confidence and passion, I dream.<br />To be adopted and ever after thoroughly belonging to the children and their future, I dream.<br />
  53. 53. I Want To Be … <br />Firefighter… And extinguish brush fires and to contain the massive forest fires.<br />Police Officer… And restore order as needed when the few try to push the limits of the system.<br />Architect…Who creates a blueprint on a crisp piece of paper, painstakingly pursuing angles and measures, hoping it will turn out to be a magnificent structure in real form some day.<br />Athlete… Who will train for hours and hours, sweat and ache from the self-inflicted physical tortures, just to say, I did it.<br /> Musician…Who simply by adding numbers and “letters” together in a harmonious way and creates the most stunning pieces of musical work. <br />
  54. 54.  Mechanic…Who takes a broken piece of machinery, assesses the problem,  and finds a way to minimize sometimes even eliminate the problem.<br />Physical Therapist…To help mend an injured body, push the physical limitations,  even make the impossible, possible again.<br />Statistician…To explore, study, and develop a pattern to describe how the world works.<br /> Any-ologist…Because I just want to study thing “things,” and explore what makes the world work.<br />Computer Programmer…And take a blank piece of composite material, fill it with data so that some day It will be able to form and “think” on its own.<br />
  55. 55. Gardener…To watch a vulnerable seedling  grow into a hardy and fruitful perennial that will continue to grow each year with only a little assistance during the toughest times.<br />Auditor…And be one of the most despised members of the community, to find flaws and insist on modifications.<br />Lawyer… To have the most absurd argument, present it to the public, and win.<br />Baker…To take unassuming bland ingredients, carefully thinking about their combinations when mixed together and emerge from the kitchen with a  rich and tasty dessert.<br />However, I know you sit there and think, “Silly girl, you’ll never be able to do all that in one lifetime!” Even so, I say, “I can and I will because it very simple you see - I want to be a teacher.”<br />
