Hi!  My name is Deanna Cross.  I am a student at Valdosta State University.  I am in a dual major in Early Childhood Special Education which is under both the Special Education Department and the Early Childhood Department.  My first two years in college were spent at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, GA.  I transferred into Valdosta State University at the beginning of my junior year.  My goal is to teach special education in the early grades such as 3rd through 5th.

My home is in Bainbridge, GA; however, I live in the dorms on the Valdosta State University campus.  I grew up in Camilla, GA, which is south of Albany, GA.  I lived in the same house until I graduated from high school.  I graduated from Mitchell-Baker High School and was Salutatorian of my class.

I received an honors scholarship to Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, GA.  After two years, I transferred to Valdosta State where I am now studying.  I currently have a 4.0 average and hope to keep it!!  I am a member of the Student Council for Exceptional Students, the National Scholars Honor Society, and the Professional Association of Georgia Educators.

When I am not studying, I enjoy reading, working on my computer, and surfing the web.  I enjoy reading children's fantasy books such as Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer, and Eragon by Christopher Paolini.  I also enjoyed The Lord of the Ring Series and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein.

As much as I love reading, I have a part-time job in the Southwest Georgia Regional Library in Valdosta, Georgia.  Before this, I worked part-time in the De Soto Trail Regional Library.  While working for this library, I created their web site.
