Have you ever wanted to trade jobs with someone - even if it was just for one day?
Thursday, some students from Monroe High School traded in the books for some real world experience.
Nursing and teaching are two of the nation's most in-demand fields these days. Anneisha Moore - a senior at Monroe High School - spent her day learning about both. She was job shadowing at the Marine Corps Logistics Base Child Development Center with the school nurse.
"I've been seeing how the nurse, miss nurse Alex does her job. How she takes care of the children that go here," she said.
She was given a choice of what she wanted to do and she chose to come here.
"I love kids as well, and I wanted to be a nurse," she said.
In another part of the facility, Kierra Guest was helping out with the toddlers. Her mentor for the day was impressed with her work.
Kia Bush is a toddler teacher at the Child Development Center. She served as the mentor for Bush. "The kids are working her, and she's able to keep up with them. So she's doing very good."
Kierra had something that is required for a good teacher - a passion for working with the children.
"She came in smiling. She introduced herself to the children and she let them be them," said Bush.
Sometimes a shadowing day is just enough to convince someone what they DON'T want to do for a living, but after today Anneisha is more determined than ever.
"I actually love being here. It's comfortable," said Moore.
While teaching these kids is a long way off for either Anneisha or Kierra, their mentors think that they'll get there one day.
Bush said, "the way (Kierra) is with the children I can see her joining something with early childhood."
And if they do, it will help fill the great need for both fields in the future.
In all, there were 29 students from Monroe High School who were shadowing today in 11 different departments, ranging from Engineering to the Criminal Investigation Division. The job shadowing day is an annual event at the base.
