Welcome to
Emily Cason's Web Page!
Hello.  My name is Emily Cason.  I am an Early Childhood Education major at Valdosta State University.  The reason I chose this field as my major is because I really enjoy being with children.  I think that I could make learning fun, and that is what I want to do one day.  The one person that influenced me the most to become a teacher was my third grade teacher, Mrs. Marchant.  She made learning fun and interesting.  I enjoyed going to school everyday.  She also treated everyone the same, which I think is very important in a classroom.  In the future, I intend to be either teaching kindergarten or couseling young children in an elementary school.
