Ladybug that skips on a line

    My name is Ashleigh Keel.  I am a junior at Valdosta State University and plan to graduate May of 2005 with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have been exposed to the teaching profession since I was born. My mother is a teacher and has been so for about thirty years.  She has been an inspiration to me and helped me realize that I wanted to become a teacher.   I love being around children and I really want to make a difference in their lives.  It is also reassuring to know what the future will hold because children are our future.

Assorted Ladybugs in a line 

    I did not know what grade I wanted to teach because I had not been exposed to different grade levels and the material that was taught in each.  Last year I was assigned to a Kindergarten class at Moulton Branch Elementary School in Valdosta, GA and loved the children and the material that was taught.  It is so evident how much a child accomplishes in Kindergarten at the end of the year.  These children are so eager to learn and love coming to school each day.  This is why I want to teach the younger students because you make a much longer lasting impression on them and their base of knowledge.

    I was born in Easley, South Carolina on November 23, 1981.  I lived there until I was 2.  We moved to Valdosta, Georgia where I currently live about the same time as my 3rd birthday.  I graduated from Valdosta High School in May of 2000.  I graduated with a College Preparatory Degree and went to Georgia Southern University the fall of 2000.  I stayed at GSU for two years and then transferred here, Valdosta State University, last semester, Spring of 2003.

Open Winged Ladybug


    I chose ladybugs for the theme of this page because I think that they are so adorable. Ladybugs are the local mascot for my sorority, Phi Mu, at Georgia Southern University in which I was very active for two years. I am very interested in charity work.  My sorority hosted its annual College Wide Bingo Night and all of the money went to our Philanthropy, Children's Miracle Network.  I was always involved because I was the Philanthropy chairman and enjoyed it immensely.  I enjoy doing things to help those who are less fortunate and need a little cheering up.
