Hello and welcome to my web page! My name is Ana Alicia Perez and I am twenty-one years old. I am currently a junior at Valdosta State University majoring in Early Childhood Education. For as long as I can remember,I have always loved children! During my senior year in high school my Spanish class took a field trip to a local elementary school to teach a Spanish lesson, and I knew from this moment I wanted to become a teacher. I am eager to finish at Valdosta State and find out what teaching has in store for me and where it shall take me.

Another one of my passions, besides children, is music. I was born in New York, but I moved to Tampa, Florida, the
Sunshine State, when I was two years old.  I attended a performing arts magnet middle and high school where I majored in chorus and also played the violin for five years. I love all types of music including classical. No matter what mood I am in there is always a song that goes with how I am feeling and can even cheer me up. Since music has had such a positive impact in my life, I believe it is very important to incorporate the performing arts into education. There is nothing better than a well-rounded education!

I also truly enjoy traveling! Whether I am traveling within the United States, or traveling abroad, it is always an amazing experience. Traveling and witnessing, first hand, a culture that is different from your own allows you to embrace your personal culture and appreciate what you have. I had the opportunity to travel to Europe for two weeks after I graduted from high school and it was one of the best things I have done. I loved experiencing the different types of music, food, and languages, but I also realized how fortunate I am. I hope one day another opportunity arises for me to travel abroad again. However, it is not neccessary to travel around the world to incorporate the importance of different cultures in the classroom. As a teacher I hope to create a culturally diverse environment in my classroom!
