Future Goals and Career Aspirations

Future Goals and Career Aspirations Looking into the future today, it is hard to picture where I will be, but I have a great idea, what I will be doing. I can see myself teaching Physical Education somewhere abiding by the curriculum, offering a very rewarding Physical Education program that strives on participation and physical activity. I want to promote physical activity so that my students will be motivated to participate not only as a child but also as an adult. I plan to teach all the curriculum outcomes, through integrating a cross curricular program. As well as teaching a very organized Physical Education class in school I avidly plan to be involved in the community through coaching both hockey in the winter and baseball in the summer. As well I want to introduce new non-traditional sports like Triathlon and physical activities such as hiking and outdoor education so that my community will be open to new ideas of physical fitness. After school I plan to teach extra-curricular programs so children who do not want to participate in the organized and elite level will have something to do. Career wise I plan to soak up Professional Development by attending many PD days offered by my school board, networking to as many people to discuss curriculum ideas and strategies for assessment. Choosing education as a career I decided right then and there that I was going to be spending my entire life a learner. I also plan to further my career and eventually going into more courses to further my knowledge in education. Career on the side, I have great aspirations of traveling. I want to see the world! I am going to seek ways in which I can teach abroad so I can see many wonders this planet has to offer. I then plan on coming back home to Nova Scotia, Canada with a greater knowledge of the world and open to new teaching ideas and lessons. When I return I plan to raise a small family in rural, country-side, Cape Breton. Growing up I believe I was offered a very wonderful childhood experience where family, religion, and beliefs were valued and this is something that I want my children to experience. In closing I really just want to life my life with no regrets. If a job comes up abroad, I don’t want to hold myself back, because my main goal is to return, and “hey” I know that Cape Bretoner’s will always stay true to their roots.
