Dancing with Education
Created by Amy Boland


    I am currently a junior at Valdosta State University.  I am majoring in Early Childhood Education and would love to end up teaching the second grade once I have received my degree. I have always enjoyed working with young kids and hope to one day share my knowledge and love for school to all my students.

    A place I have always wanted to live is Laguna Beach, California. My Dad used to live there a couple of years ago and ever since then I have had a major desire to move out there one day. I have never lived close to a beach and have promised myself I will as soon as I graduate. Laguna Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have seen and know I will enjoy myself very much. I have always been told good luck being able to afford it there but I continue to tell myself if it matters that much to me I will make it happen !

    Ever since I was three years old I have loved to dance. Since I have been at college I have taken a break but I would love to pick it back up again one day. I was in a dance company starting in the fourth grade all the way up until I was a senior in high school. I was a part of Dance Stop Company. It took up a lot of my time but it was well worth it. I remained in shape and stayed out of trouble. I made many friends throughout the experience as well. I feel dancing made me an overall better person. When I am dancing i am happiest

    There are two important websites to me that I have found while in the process of being a teacher. Both especially for first year teachers. You can look at it on http://www.hannahmeans.bizland.com/. Another great website for teachers is http://www.inspiringteachers.com/bttindex.html.
