As a member of the 4-H program, yesterday Hannah had the opportunity to participate in a career shadowing day. Several weeks ago she filled out a workbook that helped her explore many different occupations. She then had to interview someone in a career that she finds interesting. Hannah talked with a friend of ours that is an interior designer. We both think that sounds like a fantastic job! Next, she had to narrow down her top career choices and she was paired with someone to spend the day with. Hannah didn't get to shadow a designer, but she did get to spend time with a fabulous teacher, which was another job at the top of her list.
I could tell she was a little apprehensive about spending the day at a different school, but it turned out to be a great experience. The teacher was very friendly and informative. It was fun for Hannah to see school from a teacher's perspective. While she was having lunch in the teacher's lounge she lost a tooth! One teacher commented that, that doesn't happen very often in there! Ha!
I don't know what my sweet girl will be when she grows up, but she does have many qualities needed to be a great teacher. She is smart, organized, nurturing and she is a role model. On the other hand, she is also very artistic and has an eye for detail. Those characteristics would be well suited for an interior designer!
Whatever path she chooses to take in life, my prayer is that she will be a well rounded, confident, Christian woman. The Lord is preparing her, even as an eleven year old girl for the woman that she is destined to become.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord.
