    My Name is Ashley Fulgham. I am from a small town in Georgia, Lee County and I have lived there most of my life. I am currently a Junior at Valdosta State University. I am enrolled in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department and majoring in Interrelated Special Education and Early Childhood. When I graduate with my bachelors degree I plan on going on to get my Masters Degree!!  I love working with children and seeing them grow and learn new things with every step they take in school. I can not wait to start teaching so I can witness that in my everyday life!

Growing up in a small town really helped me decide what I wanted to do for a living! Lee County, Georgia is a town that has only one high school so it is a "every body knows every body" kind of place! Being that it is a small town it really helped me get close to my teachers. Seeing how they taught and changed lives really impacted me and I knew from the time I was in Middle school I wanted to be a teacher.

I knew that I always wanted to teach Early Childhood. When I got to Valdosta State in Fall of 2007 I took an additional interest into Special Education. I then changed my major to Special Education/ Early Childhood so that way I can still do Early Childhood but I can also do Special Education! SInce I have been working with children for a while now and been in Education classes I have found some really good websites that are helpful to me. One of them is a website, AtoZTeacher stuff, has almost everything a teacher would ever need! I also found another website that is full of lesson plans and all other planning things!

In my spare time I enjoy watching tennis. I played a little bit in high school but for the most part I love watching it and playing for fun!! Another thing I like to do in my spare time is go watch ballets and musicals. I danced almost my whole life, including in high school on the Danceline team, and the art of dancin is just so amazing to me!

This summer  I will have the chance of a life time. I will be studying abroad in the Czech Republic for about three weeks.We will be staying in the city of Olomouc and attending Palacky University which is a very old school that has been around since the 1950's!!! While in the Czech we will be taking classes taught by VSU faculty and some faculty from over there. For field experience during our trip some of us in the education classes will get a chance to go out into their schools and observe the way they do some things! I think that this will be an overwhelming experience and a once in a life time. How many times do you get to go across the world and see how they teach in their schools and observe their way of life? In our free time we will get to visit the Czech's Capital city and also stay overnight in Poland. One of the most exciting parts of this trip for me will be going and seeing the  Auschwitz/Birkenau death camps!
