    My name is Jamie Turner.  I am a junior at Valdosta State University majoring in Early Childhood Education in the Early Childhood and Special Education Department.  I have always loved working with children, so the teaching field was a natural fit for me.  I have always been involved with babysitting, volunteering in my church nursery, and now working at a childcare center.

    I've lived in Woodstock, Ga for most of my life, and graduated from
Etowah High School
in 2007.  After high school graduation I knew I wanted to attend Valdosta State University.  The beautiful campus and being so close to the majority of my family made a huge impact on my decision, and since I've been here for three years now I can't imagine being anywhere else.

    In college I have tried to find ways to get involved on campus and in the community, the best way I have found to do this was by joining Greek Life.  Greek Life is a great way to find a smaller support group and easily find opportunities for community service.  I found my place in this greek community by joining Chi Omega.  As a member of this organization I have been able to get involved in extra curricular activites, hold leadership positions, and make life long friends and sisters.

    Throughout my college career, I have found various websites that are helpful tools for parents and students outside of the classroom. Webpages like PBS KidsFree Rice Vocabulary, and I Know That are some of my personal favorites; they are both educational and fun!
