I Want to Be a Teacher by AppleGrapeArt I Want to Be a Teacher by AppleGrapeArt
While I was inspired by one of my friends/classmates by having the enough confidence and courage to declare her dream to this contest. I admit that sometimes I am secretive about this despite being open with all my friends, thinking that they won't come true if I say them out loud (supersticious of me, my bad). So I feel ashamed for feeling that way, since dreams come true by determination and confidence, not by voodoo.

One of my many dreams is to teach art. I like to inspire young people to be creative and kick their "But I don't know how to draw" attitude. Yes, you can draw and I will teach you how! Believe in me and your abilities!

Wow! that's really cool and inspiring! I agree with you, Dreams do come true with hard work and determination, not by some magic or superstitions. I really have an appreciation for your optimistic, "grab life by the horns" attitude, that in of it's self is very inspiration. Also, this is a great piece of art!

Thank you! So far, it has been a great and growingly experience. Sometimes you got to be very strict, sometimes you got to smile and acknowledge their efforts. It's all a juggling act. But at the end, it's a win-win (especially in art) when they have accomplished something special for themselves thanks to your guidance.

Wow! I know what you mean, God has definitely given me a love for children, and they usually return mah love tenfold! That is what makes it all worth it, walking through mah church hallway and having several "3-footers" running up to me, hugging me to death. I also do a lot of kid-sitting these kids, and through that I get the chance to provoke some love backed discipline like you mentioned. I am also an artist, and many times I will whip out mah drawing stuff and they crowd around to watch , and to fill mah head with all their requests. Many times, parents will come up to me -even after I have just spent a few hours with them- and tell me about how I have inspired their children, and how they now draw constantly and and are relentlessly striving to be better. THAT is what inspires me, really. One girl in mah church, she's 7, and she tells EVERYONE that I am the best artist in the world. I tell her that one day she will be mah manager! Children really are a blessing, and especially to me. It's ironic, I go through a lot of crap in mah youth group, but it's in the hallways -when I here the pitter-patter of feet running toward me- that I really feel the Love that the Church should give me. I very much understand what you mean by "But at the end, it's a win-win (especially in art) when they have accomplished something special for themselves thanks to your guidance." I love watching these kids bloom, and their art skills blossom under mah occasional encouragement. They really are the perfect example of love, and I can't get enough of them!
