Having A BIG HEART for Education

Designed by: David Kouril

    My name is David Kouril and I am a junior at Valdosta State University. I am majoring in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department to become a Special Education teacher later on in life. I am from a small town right outside Valdosta called Hahira, and graduated from Lowndes high in 2006. Since I was around the age of twelve, I have been involved in camps that works with people with special needs. Every summer I go to Camp Civitan which is pretty close to Cairo for a week, then I leave right away for the epic Camp Big Heart. I love to fish so that is probably my favorite hobby. At camp sometimes I am lucky enough to be the Fishing Activity leader which allows me to teach and show capmers how to fish. The best part about the position is that I get to fish all day!
    For a teacher, technology is one of the many important resources avalible to help enhance the child's learning, by giving the students the chance to learn from more hands on activities. Using technology as a tool for teaching also has a chance to make learning even more fun. Here are some interactive websites that I found to be fun for children at yahookids, and funbrain. Children that visit these's sites have the avalability to choose from several fun interactive educational on-line games. I would reccomend these websites because it covers all the core areas of a child's education.
