Hi, my name is Lucy Miller, and what I want to be is an artist. I want to be an artist because I love to draw. My favorite thing to draw is food or something I learned in art. I also love to be an artist because I love to make pictures look alive.

Moreover, I also want to be a teacher. I want to be a teacher because it is fun to write on the Promethean board and whiteboard. Also, the teachers already know the answers because they are educated.

I want to be a chef when I grow up. I would give my family free food. And if there is a poor person, I will say, “Do you want some soup or some ratatouille?”

If you want something that you don’t have, don’t brag about it because, when I’m older, and you don’t have food, I will give you something to eat. If I eat, you eat.

You will come and eat. Everyone or anyone will make growing up and the future a better place for the kids and adults.
Help keep us safe and make a better place. We can work and work as hard as we can. I believe we can reach that goal if we say “God Bless America.”

Hi, my name is William Knight. I want to be a math professor when I grow up. I thought it would be nice to do something I am good at when I am older. I think that math is the greatest subject.

You can learn a lot like mixed math, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, geometry, fractions and a lot more.

First, when I get older I want to be a singer, actress, photographer or teacher. I want to be one of those things because they look easy. I would like to be a singer because I enjoy it, and it’s also not that hard. I want to become an actress because in acting you could meet new people and new friends.

I would also like to be a photographer. I could take pictures of animals and other things. And if I am a photographer, I will go to Africa and explore all of the animals that live in the rain forest. I also would like to go to different states and explore them.

Finally, I would like to be a teacher when I grow up because I like helping people, and teachers instruct all sorts of things. But I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow older. I mostly want to be an actress or a singer.

Grade 4

When I grow up I would like to be a teacher, or an artist, or maybe an actress, or even a chef or an owner of a restaurant. If I were a teacher, I would help children to learn how to read, write and draw. The grade I would want to teach would be third grade. I would put them in reading groups like red group, green group and purple group. Red group would be the lowest group. Green group would be the second group. And purple group would be the highest group.

If I were an artist, I would be colorful and use the complementary colors like yellow and purple, blue and orange, and red and green. I learned the complementary colors from my art teacher. I would also have a palette with paints. Another reason is that I love to draw.

If I were an actress, I would be popular and famous. I would be on TV. I would like to be in movies. I would want to be on kid shows like “iCarly,” “Wizards of Waverly Place” and “The Suite Life on Deck.”

If I were a chef, I would like to cook all kinds of food with my own secret recipes. I would bake cakes, sweets and make all kinds of desserts. It would be yummy. All of my foods would be special and have a wonderful taste. It would be nice to be a chef. I could be a chef for a restaurant.

Lastly, if I were the owner of a restaurant, I would make the menu and call the place “Treasure Island.” There would be appetizers, drinks, burgers, salads, soups, pizza, ribs, nachos, hot dogs, sides, special drinks, special salads and special burgers.

And for the kids, I would call their menu “Little Pirate’s Plate.” The food they would have would be cheese nachos, grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, hamburgers, ribs, macaroni and cheese, cheese quesadillas, sides and drinks. The food would be delicious.

In conclusion, those jobs are what I would want to be when I grow up.

When I grow up, I want to be a doctor. I want to be a doctor because you help people feel better, and sometimes you give shots. But if I can’t be a doctor, then I want to be a hairstylist. I think it is fun being a hairstylist because you can do your daughter’s hair or your own hair. But sometimes I want to be a teacher. I don’t know what I want. But I know I’m going to be something.

First of all, I want to be a police officer when I grow up because I want to save people, work and stop criminals. Criminals are always taking stuff that is not theirs, and they never ask if they can take it, so that is why the police have to stop them and take them to jail.

Next, police are brave to go and save people in the neighborhood. They also chase criminals that are speeding in the freeway.

Then, the other reason why they are courageous is because they stop bad guys when they start shooting at the police. They are not scared if they are shooting or if they have a gun.

So that is why I want to be a police officer, because they keep us safe. The end.

Elsa Anvario
Grade 4
Newhall Elementary School

Hi, my name is Elsa Anvario, and the thing I want to be when I grow up is a teacher. I want to be a teacher because teachers teach kids how to read and write, math, science and social studies. Also, teachers are the best because they help kids to be smart. That’s why I want to be a teacher when I grow up.

Another thing I want to be when I grow up is a firefighter. Firefighters help people and save them and that’s what I like about firefighters. Because if a house burns, people call firefighters and they come and knock on the door and tell them what’s wrong, and they just build another house, or if it burns, they put water on it. Those are two things I want to be when I grow up.
