Exploring the World of Education
Designed by Alyssa Pekas


Welcome to "Exploring the World of Education!" My name is Alyssa Pekas and I am twenty-one years old. I live in a house with two roommates and two dogs. I am a junior at Valdosta State University and apart of the Early Childhood and Special Education Department. I have been
working with children since I was thirteen years by helping to teach Sunday school, teaching cheerleading camps, and working at a day care.  I absolutely love working with children and am very passionate about the importance of loving education at an early age.


Throughout middle school and high school, I was a competitive cheerelader. I no longer cheerlead, but in my spare time I enjoy traveling and love to be outdoors and active. Enjoy Central America is an awesome website to check out to see all of the different activities there are to do outdoors. Some of my favorite activities are  hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, playing tennis and volleyball, and white water rafting.  I will try almost anything at least once.  My next adventure will be going sky diving.  Some of my favorite places to visit are New York, Charleston, South Carolina, anywhere in the mountains, and any beach. Some of my favorite beaches to go to are in the Florida Keys

I decided to become a teacher because I absolutely love working with children. I am passionate about instilling the love of education and learning into young students. When I become a teacher, I will use many websites for resources, lesson plans, and fun activities to incorporate within my own classroom. The Teachers Corner and Activities for Kids are only two of the creative websites available for teachers.
