When I Grow Up... Scrapbook Keepsake

What do YOU want to be when you grow up?

It's a question that I asked my students this year. Each student completed a research project entitled "The Job For Me". They had to research and decide what they want to be when they grow up, write about the job and why they want to do said job, and present it to the class. It was an option to dress in job attire.
The day before "Job Day", I had a little boy ask,
"Mrs. Starla, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Well, here's what I came up with...
Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, and that's exactly what I did. I became a teacher. I'm 25 years old, but I still don't FEEL "grown up"! So, what do I want to be when I grow up? I want to be a SUPER Teacher. As a teacher, I am always researching, reading, "pinteresting", finding new ways to teach things, new activities, new behavior management techniques, etc. I love to learn!!! I hope that when I "grow up", I can be a SUPER Teacher!
I was VERY impressed with my student's projects and their presentations. We had everything from a doctor to a vet, a pilot to a detective, a police officer to an army man, an artist to a weather man, and several teachers. Of course, I took pictures! Then, I saw THIS on Pinterest:
So, what did I do? I made my own version. Check it out!
This gem went it every child's Kindergarten Scrapbook!
What a great memory to look back on years from now!
Now, what do YOU want to be when you grow up?
