My name is Candace Meeks.  I graduated from high school in 2002 and attended Southwest Georgia Technical College the summer of 2002.  I've been to four colleges including Southwest Georgia Technical College within six years. I've also changed my major four different times.  Now, I'm happily attending Valdosta State University where I'm a junior in the Early Childhood & Special Education Program.  My planned graduation date is May 2011.

I enjoy volunteering for events that give me the opportunity to work with children.  I've volunteered as a Girl Scout Leader Assistant for three years.  Volunteering helps me to enhance my knowledge about children and how they think and learn.  I have a 2 year old son, DaKarri Ah'Johnnie Meeks, who keeps me on the go.  We enjoy singing, reading, and playing with one another.  Besides the enjoyment of volunteering and my son, I love shopping for shoes.  Three of my favorite shoe stores are  Finish Line, Nine West, and  Shoe Carnival.  Another one of my hobbies is tasting desserts.  My favorite dessert is cake.  I love all types of cakes, preferably publix bakery cakes.

I'm always on the internet researching different teaching strategies for diverse children.  I also search for educational activities that I can do with my students in order to enhance their knowledge.  I've come across several useful sites.  One of the sites, teacher vision, provides teachers with lesson plans, games for the students, suggestions for classroom management, assessments, themes for the classroom, and special need resources for diverse students.  Another site, scholastic, provides information for the teacher, parents, and students.  Games for the students, teaching strategies (including strategies for diverse learners and English as a second language students), classroom management tips, and educational materials are also provided.
