    My name is Destiny Collins.  I am in the Early Childhood Education program at Valdosta State University and looking forward to graduation in 2011.  I have received my Associates Degree from Bainbridge College in Early Childhood Education.   There are many reasons why I chose this career path.  The main reason is my love for children.  I enjoy having a part in students becoming life long learners. My senior year in high school helped me decide what career path to take.  I was in a youth apprenticeship program that allowed me to work in a Pre-Kindergarten classroom everyday.  I had a wonderful mentor teacher, fell in love with the children, and decided to become a teacher.  I look forward to interacting with students and positively impacting their educational experience.

    While I was attending Bainbridge College in Bainbridge, GA working on my Associates, I had the opportunity to go on a Study Abroad trip to Belize.   Belize is a beautiful country with beautiful children! My group's purpose for the trip was to learn about cultural diversity.  So, we got a chance to learn first hand what cultural diversity was by observing in the classrooms of Belize Schools in the district of Corozal.  These pictures below are some of the classrooms I observed in! The one on the left is me reading to a Pre-K class.  The other is a wonderful fifth grade teacher in Belize.

There are many great websites for teachers and parents to visit to gain knowledge for their children.  One website is The Teacher's Corner.  It has great teacher resources, printables, book nooks, and lesson plans.  Another website is Read Write Think.  It is a wonderful website that teachers and parents can find specific books that help with learning language.
