Hello! My name is Ginger McClellan, and I
am twenty years
old. I am currently a junior
at Valdosta State University and
majoring in Early
Childhood Education. I plan to graduate with my Bachelors
Degree in December of 2005. I always thought that I would like to
go into teaching as a profession but it really became clear to me during my senior year of
school. I was in the Teachers
Apprenticeship Program where I got to work as a Teacher’s Assistant at Sallas Mahone Elementary School, and I rotated
between eight 3rd grade
classrooms. I really enjoyed this
experience, and it made me realize that I had a passion for teaching
working with children. I am excited about entering the world
can tell by my
homepage, I love butterflies. I really do
not know how this happened. I have
always thought butterflies were
so beautiful and fascinating. I am drawn
to them. Another interest that I have is
learning about manatees. I know this my
sound strange, but I absolutely love manatees.
It all started in the third grade when my class was studying
species. Manatees were one of the
species we studied. Shortly after, my
family took a vacation to SeaWorld
in Orlando, FL. I fell in love with the manatees.
Ever since, I have enjoyed learning about
manatees and collecting anything having to do with them.
A cool site to visit is the Save the Manatee
Foundation. This site contains
interesting information on manatees, and how we can help protect these
I have lived in Valdosta,
all of my life. Sometimes the same old
thing gets a bit boring, but I know no matter where I end up this will
be home. I have not really traveled a
whole lot. I have family in Florida. I have been to North
Carolina and Alabama,
but that is hardly what I call traveling.
Someday I would love to visit Switzerland. My friend has been there, and she said it is
absolutely beautiful, cold but beautiful.
She said the landscapes are just breathtaking.
I have seen pictures, and I would love to
experience the scenery firsthand. I will
have to be sure to pack a lot of warm clothing!
Another place that I would love to visit is Key West. I love
the beach so anywhere near the ocean is fine with me.
I love everything about the beach. It
just calms me. I would also love to go
snorkeling again and
of course do some deep sea fishing.
