    Hello! My name is Emilia Phillips. I am a junior at Valdosta State University. I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I began my college career at Darton College in Albany, Ga through the apprenticeship program at Lee County High school in Leesburg, Ga. Although I have enjoyed attending Valdosta State, I cannot wait to start teaching!

    I am from Leesburg, Georgia. Leesburg is a small town located just north of Albany, Georgia. Although it is a small town, Leesburg is a great place to have a family. The people are friendly, education is the main focal point, and (I hate to brag) some of the best baseball players are from Leesburg! I have one sister that is attending Lee County High school with aspirations of becoming a bilingual lawyer and choreographer.

    My passions are reading, writing, and watching courtroom based dramas. I love to read and I stress the importance of reading to every child I encounter. Some of my favorite children's books are Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor, Chicken Sunday by Patricia Polacco, and Kelly in the Mirror by Martha M. Vertreace.
 
Law and Order SVU is one of my favorite television shows. I will sit for hours and watch back to back episodes. Thanks to me, my friends are hooked as well!
         

 

I also like to travel. One of my favorite vacation spots is in Jacksonville, Florida. I try to go to the beach as much as I can and I always have a good time! Jacksonville also has a variety of activities to participate in regardless of your age.

This is a picture of Jacksonville. I absolutely dread driving over the bridge because I am afraid of heights. The only motivation I have that keeps me moving ahead is the beach that lies on the other side!
