  • 1. In my life I hope to go to college, live on Long Island, continueto play polo, ride horses, play as many instruments as I do, andhave a family. I hope to make it to DE CA Nationals before Igraduate and have had some good job experiences. I have a fewjobs that would fulfill my dreams but one of them sticks outmore than the others and I hope to take steps towards makingthese dreams come to life.

2. Some of my wor k val ues ar e havi ng a safe envi r onment towor k i n, fr iendl y co-wor k er s, a fai r boss, and the abi l ity towor k i ndependentl y.

This was one of the first careers that I have ever considered, and itseems to have stuck with me. I think that this is a good career forme because I have always loved teaching. I can easily stand in frontof an audience and speak, and convey my thoughts out loud. Itmatches my Holland code because teachers have to be social withother people and their students, they have to solve problems such aschildren that misbehave and they also have to understand businessaspects in order to teach students the same type of things. I havealways loved teaching and I participate in teaching programs suchas High School Heroes and Teacher Swap every year. 5.
