Where Would They Be If They Weren’t Teaching?
March 22, 2017
Before finding themselves at AHN, some faculty and staff members had different visions for what their life would be.
Mikos says, “When I was a cute little kid, I wanted to be a ballerina. That dream quickly died. When I was in high school, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher or an engineer. Then, I ended up here.”
Pantelis says, “Originally I wanted to be an OBGYN. My cousin was born around the time I was in high school and I thought it was so cool because the doctor was so good at it and put everyone in the room at ease. That actually is why I wanted to become a counselor.”
Lamm says, “I wanted to be a pediatrician because I wanted to help kids.”
Quire says, “I wanted to be an astronaut. I was always interested in the space program and science. I was planning on being an Aerospace Engineer.”
Anderson says, “I always wanted to be an actress. From the time I was seven and I wrote and directed plays using my mother’s clothesline to make curtains, I knew that is what I wanted to do. I used to put together music and choreograph dances. When I was in high school, I was involved in drama, chorus, and in undergrad I studied drama. It was when I met my future husband and fell in “love” with him, and we married that I left the arts. Nevertheless, I did do some performing along the way during our 44 years of marriage as of this year, and I look forward to many more.”

Regan says, “I always wanted to be a teacher. My mother was a teacher and always seemed to love it. There weren’t many options for me at that particular time like there are for you. I liked children and I liked babysitting. I also liked summers free. Amen.”
Chase says, “I always wanted to be a teacher. I love coming to school and I wish we could have school all year long. I enjoy your company. This isn’t like a job for me. I feel like I’m the luckiest person.”
