Blossom with Education
Designed by Courtney Cochran


My name is Courtney Cochran. I am a junior at Valdosta State University, majoring in Early Childhood Education in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department in hopes of one day becoming a first grade teacher. I have hopes of becoming a first grade teacher. I have always enjoyed working with children and I want to make a difference in their lives, as so many teachers have made a difference in mine.

I'm twenty-one years old, and I am from the small town of Sylvester, Ga. I have a wonderful and supportive family. I graduated with honors on June 1, 2007 from Tiftarea Academy.I am an only child, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, and going to Fort Walton Beach, in Destin, Florida.I look forward to taking the things that I have learned and applying them in the classroom. I am so excited to begin this journey.

For other future teachers I feel that these two websites may be helpful. is a website that has free lesson plans, live chat, and lists of possible job openings. The next site is called Site for Teachers. This site gives other possible links to additional websites that give options for lesson plans. The site includes free worksheets, game, and study tools. Also, parents and teachers may visit to view the Georgia Performance Standards to which the teacher will be teaching.
