He has always been the type who does really well at things that interest him & ignores everything else. Unfortunately this means that he does not do very well in school, even though he tests as "gifted" DH & I finally gave up on punishing him for his grades & have decided that his grades belong to him & if he doesn't care about them there is nothing we can do. We will not allow him to drop out of school or switch to a "alternative" education school....he will have to get it together eventually & complete his classes to graduate. We had hoped to send him AWAY to college after H.S. graduation, but his performance these first two yrs of high school has almost certainly made that not feasible. He will probably have to live at home & attend Jr college for a couple yrs before he can get into a good university.
He is in choir at school and really enjoys it. He sometimes talks about becoming a choir instructor and going back to his high school to be the choir director after the current director retires. He has also been talking lately about the possibility of attending seminary & someday teaching religion (he doesn't want to be a priest, but he is VERY interested in religions) Sooooo, teaching seems to be the direction he is leaning, we'll just have to see WHAT he ends up teaching.
