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.
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.
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.
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.
