Welcome to Emilia's World of Smart Kids!

Hello! My name is Emilia Phillips. I am a junior at Valdosta
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!
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!
