“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Inspired by this blog post, I asked the children’s department staff how they would have answered that question as a kid and why. Up first is Teresa…
When I was a kid I thought I’d grow up to be a teacher or a nurse; typical “girl” career choices! It’s funny I never considered being a librarian when I was little, because all I really ever wanted to do was read!
After being a candy striper in high school, I took the nursing profession off my list. I did ultimately become a preschool teacher before working in libraries, so I feel I merged my childhood career dream with my favorite hobby. I just wish I had more time to read!
