girl signing I love you

Hello, my name is Carin Jones and I am currently a Senior at Valdosta State Univerisity with an anticipated graduation date of May 6, 2006! 
My major is Special Education with an emphasis in Deaf Education.  I transfered from
Utah Valley State College to Valdosta State University - Kingsbay.   I recieved my Associate's Degree from VSU-Kingsbay before actually moving to Valdosta to live and continue my schooling.  I plan to pursue my education by attending Graduate School at Valdosta State University to recieve my Master's Degree in Deaf Education.

I am from St. Marys, GA and a 2000 graduate of Camden County High School.  My hobbies or things that I enjoy are: writing poetry/spoken word and stories, reading, dancing, listening to music, playing basketball, being outside, and getting dirty. 

I am an animal lover!  I have had numerous pets including: dogs, a cat, hamsters, a turtle, fish, birds, and a rabbit.  My favorite animal in the whole wide world is a monkey!  At the moment I have no pets but plan to have another rabbit and a dog.

Right beside loving pets I adore children!  I have been working in a wonderful childcare facility - Krayons Academy - in St. Marys, GA ever since I was 16 years of age.  I have worked with children between the ages of 6 months to 12 years within the facility.

One day I plan to visit an exotic island like the Pacific Islands or the Caribbean.  Since that is not possible anytime soon...I enjoy the coast of Florida!
