What is Your Dream???

Dan Yaccarino
Charlie Escher
 In the past two weeks, we met two inspirational men who shared the same message. Even though these men have extremely different careers, they both spent time when they were young thinking about what they love doing and what they were interested in. Mr. Escher and Mr. Yaccarino studied and worked hard to make their passion a career. Dan Yacarrino suggested we take time to close our eyes and think about the thing we most love to do and what makes us happiest. Please reflect on your interests. What do you love to do? What do you hope you can do every day in your work when you grow up?  Please write four to five sentences using the correct grammar and punctuation.
Dan Yaccarino uses his passion of drawing every day as an illustrator, animator and art teacher! 
Charlie Escher uses his passion for action, space and planes every day as a Navy pilot!


  1. When I grow up, I want to be either a Navy pilot, a professional baseball player or a Navy Seal. I want to be a Navy pilot because you get to fly all around the world and fly some of the fastest planes in the world for a living. I want to be a professional baseball player because baseball has always been my favorite and best sport and I love it. I want to be a Navy Seal because it would be very cool to go on secret missions and jump out of planes and do all that fun stuff. I want to have those jobs because then I would be helping people around the world - entertaining them or protecting them. REECE OUT

  2. I want to be a scientist when I grow up. Why do I want to be a scientist when I grow up? Because I like to do things that have to do with science.
    I also like science as a favorite special at school.

  3. I want to become an Olympic swimmer an beat the world record!! I want to become a swimmer because I love to swim and be the best at what I love to do but I am not always the best at what I do so I have to work hard to be the best.
    I also want to be an Olympic skier (if swimming doesn't work). I want t ski because the first time I heard that me and my parents were going skiing I got freaked out and when I tried it skiing was so much fun I loved it so much on my second day of skiing I told my parents I wanted to be an Olympic skier they were shocked!
    Well those things are what I want to be when I grow up!!

  4. I want to be an actor because one of my dads college friends son is an actor and I want to be like him. Also I already couple jobs and there are a lot of auditions everywhere. If that doesn't work out, I want to be a gymnast. I already compete in gymnastics at HGA.

  5. These are some ideas of what I want to be when I grow up.
    One idea I had was that I wanted to be teacher. I'm also thinking about being a head couch for a collage field hockey team some day too. My last idea is that I want to be a youth paster at church.

    - Hope

  6. When I grow up, I want to be an author because I can do crazy things, be someone else, and go to amazing places. Last year I entered the PBS writing contest and got an honorable mention. I entered again this year and haven't found out the results. If that doesn't work out, then I want to be in the CIA or the FBI, because I love mysteries and cracking cases.

  7. I want to play in the NBA. It would be so cool. I could dunk and do all the cool the things the NBA players do. I also want to be a comedian. I could tell hilarious jokes and have lots and lots of fun.

  8. I don't really know yet what I want to be when I grow up but I will give you some ideas.
    I really like sports like softball I could be coach for hischool or collage at the University of Texas or play softball their if I am not a coach.
    Maybe a tennis player like Sharaprova or Seriena Williams.
    Or I could be a teacher like my awesome teacher Mrs.O'connell.
    and those are some things that I might want to be when I grow up.

  9. Well,
    I'm not positive about what I want to be when I grow up but I might want to be a Teacher or An Ice Skating coach. So pretty much teaching somebody to do something. I want to be a teacher because, I like reading to people and teaching them something they never knew before!
    And I want to be a ice skating coach because I like Skating and I want people to like it as much as I do!!!
    I might also want to be a lawyer because then I can be a judge.I want to be a judge because I can argue without getting in trouble!!!


  10. When I grow up to be 16 I want to be in the Olympics for gymnastics. After that I want to live on a farm and grow crops there so I don't have to pay for food. I will build a stable there so I can teach horseback riding lessons for kids. I also will get a huge fish tank and get like 30 fish.
    I will also be a mom of two children. They will be home schooled
    so they can help out with the horses. Well that is all.


  11. I don't really know what I want to be yet. I love swimming, soccer, reading, skiing. I could be a actress sense I love acting. I just hope I know what I want to do when it comes time to get a job, but I think I will have made up my mind by then.

  12. when I grow up I want to be a NBA player because it would be cool. I would also be a comedian because I am funny( some of the times.) I would also be a FBI agent because I like to figure out secrets. I would also be a person in the Air Force because I think it will be fun.


  13. I want to be a football or baseball player for either Texas or TCU because I like sports or I would like to be an FBI agent because they get to know secrets and you get to wear shades. #TCUGARRETT

  14. When I grow up I want to be a Baseball player for Texas and then play in the MLB. My second thing is probably being a Doctor because my dad is one and it is really cool looking at Xrays. I would also like to play Basketball and win March Maddness and then win the NBA finals. I also could be in the FBI and be a spy for the government.

  15. This is what I want to be when i grow up... I want to be a football player for Texas and win the champion ship. I also want to be in the army to help protect are land. My third thing i want to be is a business man so i can pay for my family. But my first thing i want to be is a good parent. Bye!!!

  16. I have a couple ideas of what I want to be when grow up. Like Mr. Escher said to never give up on your dream so I want my dreams to come true. My dreams are…….

    Being a softball player than a coach at A&M because I love softball and I love A&M

    Or I want to be a stillest because a couple days ago my mom was going to a fashion show and she needed a dress and I told her to try a dress that I pick and my mom wore it to the fashion show

    Last but not least I maybe want to be the first girl yell leader because every A&M football game I do all the things that the yell leaders do and by the way yell leaders are like cheer leaders but they are guys and they do different things then cheer leaders #MIA

  17. I want to be an NFL wide receiver or a navy seal. I want to be a wide receiver because I have always loved football. I want to be a navy seal because I want to serve our country. And those are what I want to be when I grow up.
