Leap Through Education

Designed By Amanda Smith


My name is Amanda Smith and I am a student at Valdosta State University.  I am pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have a very strong passion for children and their future.  I am from a very small town, McRae.  It is located 30 minutes south of Dublin, GA. 

My family and friends are very important to me.  I have been with my amazing boyfriend, Steven, for 2 years.  He is my support and best friend.  I have wonderful parents and the best little brother!  My daddy is in the military and currently in Afghanistan.  My mom is my biggest supporter and the most incredible women you will ever meet.  My little brother is taller than I am and only in the 8th grade. He is my little buddy.  All of these people encourage me to pursue what I love and help inspire me everyday.  My other passion in life is dance.  I did it in high school and fell in love.  My favorite dance is the Nutcracker.

Here are a few links that I have found very useful for me as a teacher and for my students.  A to Z Teacher Stuff is a great site that has many resources for teachers, such as, lesson plans, tools, and support.  Parents can help their child to continue and improve their education with resources found on Internet 4 Classrooms.
