Why I Chose Education

The heart behind my decision to be an education major

Why I Chose Education
Katie Miller

I get discouraged.

People tell me that I'm too good for it,

They say that I'm wasting my potential.

"Why aren't you going to be a doctor?"

I can't help it

There's a huge burden on my heart.

I want to be a difference maker.

I want to love kids-

especially the ones who don't get any at home.

What about the one who doesn't have a mommy

or whose daddy doesn't pay them any attention?

What about the one who isn't wanted?

Who's going to love them?

I am.

I want kids to know their worth-

especially the ones who are constantly torn down.

What about the one who thinks she is ugly

or the one who isn't as athletic as his friends?

What about the one who doesn't seem to fit in?

Who's going to build them up?

I am.

I want students to know that they can do it-

especially the ones that are always being told they can't.

What about the one who is struggling with their long division

or the one who stutters too much?

What about the one who can't focus long enough?

Who's going to tell them that they ARE smart enough?

I am.

Teachers don't get paid alot-

I know that

Teachers have to do deal with annoying kids all day-

I know that

Teachers don't get the credit they deserve

I know that...

but I don't care.

These kids need to know that I love them-

and that Jesus loves them even more.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home

There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
