G : What do you want to be when you grow up, Mark?
B : I want to be a teacher. I think I would like to help children learn.
G : Well, you know, teachers work very hard, and they are not paid much money.
B : I don’t care about money. Teaching is an important job.
G : What subject do you want to teach?
B : I want to teach mathematics, like Ms. Kim. She makes learning fun. I didn’t know that I would like math so much until I joined her class. Now, mathematics is my favorite subject.
G : If you want to teach math, you’ll have to work hard and learn it well.
B : No problem! I got an A on the mathematics examination last week. With good teachers like Ms. Kim, learning is easy.
G : I want to be a teacher, too. But I want to teach English, not math!
