When I grow up, I want to become a great pilot. I want to work for the Mexican air force.

I wanted to be that, because it inspired me when I went on a Ferris wheel and faced my fear of heights.

The reason I want to become a pilot is because there are bad things in the world. The last reason is because of bad people coming by air.

Second prize

When I grow up, I want to be a science teacher so everyone knows how to do science.

With science, you can do anything you want to do. In movies, when they mix chemicals, they explode.

You can make electricity. Now that I am a fourth-grader, I am learning about electricity.

I want to teach everyone how to make experiments, so fourth-graders can teach third-graders about saving energy so you don’t have to pay a lot of money for electricity.

 If you are using too much energy, the lights will turn off. That’s how electricity works.

Third prize

When I grow up, I want to be a scientist. I want to be a scientist, because I love math and science. I also want to be a scientist because I think it is a very fun job. You get to do experiments. I think scientists are cool, because they make very important discoveries, like gravity. When I grow up, I want to be the type of scientist that studies electricity, because I think it is interesting. That is what I want to be when I grow up.

What do I want to be when I grow up? I want to be a videographer because at my sister’s party, there was one, and he said that he likes his job because he gets to meet other people and take pictures and videotape them.

Also, I want to be a preschool teacher, because I love kids. Another reason is because I love to work with kids and they are so cute.

And maybe I also want to teach kindergarten, because in preschool, all you can do is play with them.

And maybe I also want to work at a restaurant, because you can learn how to cook.

The best thing I want to be is a singer because I love to sing. That is my favorite thing to do when I am bored.

I also want to be many more things, but I hope that I am going to be a singer.

What I want to be when I grow up is a nurse, doctor, cop and teacher.

First, I would like to be a nurse, because you get to save lives.

Next, a doctor because you get to do more interesting things. For example, you get to perform surgeries.

Third, a cop because you get to stop people who are doing the wrong things.

Finally, a teacher. I want to be a teacher because you get to have fun and help kids.

When I grow up, I want to be like my dad. My dad is a plumber and he can make up to $200 a day. That is why I’d like to be a plumber. I want to be my dad, because he gets lots of money. This is who I want to be when I grow up.

Hi, my name is Alejandra Ramirez, and I am in fourth grade. My teacher is Miss Golbert.

When I grow up, I want to be a veterinarian. One reason is because I love animals. Another is I just don’t think animals’ injuries should stay that way. When I become a veterinarian, I will go anywhere in the world.

Another thing I want to be is an artist, because I love drawing. You can draw anything. Mr. Fossa is our class’ art teacher.

Last time he came, he taught us about complementary colors. They are yellow and purple, red and green, and blue and orange. He also told us about filling in the biggest space.

One last thing I want to be is a professional softball player. I love softball, even though I started this year. I’m so happy I got a coach who doesn’t yell at me when I make a mistake.

Those are the things I want to be.

When I grow up, I am going to be a person who sells video games. I want to sell fun games, and even funny games, and dangerous games for ages 18 and older, because I do not want kids being bad and screaming at people. People can be real mean, like a bully.

When I grow up, I would want to be an animal rescuer, because I want to rescue animals that have no owner.

I really want to help animals that do not have any food, are in trouble and are hurt. But the most marvelous thing about saving animals is working with dogs every day. It might be hard to find a foster home and train them.

I also really want to rescue animals, because I want to set free animals that are stuck in places that they really aren’t supposed to be in, just waiting to be saved. That is why I want to rescue animals.
