Journal 9
In The Calling, the passage that I like the most is Lee Buono, 40, A Neurosurgeon, Talks with his Eighth-Grade Science Teacher, Al Siedlecki, 65. I can relate to this passage because during my high school, I did not really know what I want to do in the future. I made a few options that I found an interest in, which are pharmacy and a type of engineer. One day in my high school, my guidance counselor told me about an engineering summer camp program that Ohio States of Marion is having. After I attend the summer camp I realized what I want to do in the future. I want to be a computer engineer. I am very thankful that my counselor told me about the engineering program. When Al said "Of all the people in your entire career, you want to thank me? And I started to cry. It was the same feeling I had when my kids were born.", after Lee thanks Al, I thought to myself that I should have thank my counselor for showing me the engineering program. 

For my research, I searched up what a neurosurgeon is. A neurosurgeon is a physician who specializes in surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system. To become a neurosurgeon, one must complete four years of pre-medical education, four years of medical school, one year internship in general surgery, five to seven years in neurosurgery residency program, and continuing education. 


  1. You have really good research on what a neurosurgeon does. I had no idea what they have to go through to become one.

  2. I liked how you related him thanking Al to you thanking your counselor.
