As a high school student in southern Ohio, I had the special chance to shadow teachers at the middle and high school levels during my senior year. Additionally, some members of my family were in the field of education, so I was able to have an up-close-and-personal view of “life as a teacher” — and I loved it! Some students, though, are not afforded the same positive experiences, and tend to dabble in multiple career fields before finding one that suits their abilities and talents.
In and of itself, experimenting with different careers is not a negative. Rather, some feel as though it helps to shape them as a person, both personally and professionally. Although it would be nice if students were afforded the opportunity to speak with people from a half-dozen careers of interest, in a personal and informal setting.
