I yearn to be a teacher

I am Vihara Nethmi and I study in Grade Four at Sri Walagamba Kanishta Vidyalaya. I am nine years old. My ambition is to be a teacher. I will be kind to children and guide them in the correct path. When I see good teachers, I too like to be like them. I hope I can achieve my goal.

Hope, wish, fantasy

Call it what you may, everyone dreams of being someone or doing something different when they grow up. Some dream of being astronauts, rocket scientists, space explorers… Some dream of being clowns, comedians and running away to a circus. Still others wish to be lawyers, doctors, cricketers or superstars.

The sky, as they say, is the limit to your dreams… But what’s the fun if you keep it all to yourself? So why not put pen to paper, or finger to keyboard, and share with us what you dream of being, when you grow up? You can mail your dreams, along with your photograph to [email protected] yahoo.com or send it by snailmail to ‘Junior Observer’, No. 35, D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha, Colombo 10.
