…ever since I was younger I kind of wanted to be a teacher, or at least I was considering it. And now that I’m older and in college I think I might look into it more. During this summer I volunteered with Open Books in a program called book buddies, where I would go to a school twice a week and read with little kids. It made me feel happy to see these kids try their best with reading, and it made me happy knowing I was helping them along. I think I would work better with older kids though, like I could relate to them more. But I guess time will tell and I’ll find my calling down the road.
Many of our volunteers have gone on to find their calling in education and/or library science. Keep testing the waters and we’re sure you’ll find your path! :) ^KE
