I enjoy traveling abroad.  My most memorable trip abroad to date has
 been to Italy.  Rome is my absolute favorite city.  There are many things to do there.  The culture and architecture is very interesting.  I hope to return there again some day.  My favorite method of travel is cruising.  The sound of the ocean is very relaxing for the mind and body.  I also enjoy listening to jazz music.  The combination of the two activities is my ideal vacation. 
 



Education is one of the most valuable resources we have.  As future teachers, it will be our job to mold the minds of our future leaders, empowering them to reach for the stars in all of their endeavors.  Early childhood education is important  because it sets the foundation for a student's future potential.  The information and skills they acquire during their formative years set the tone and the pace for future success.  It is now our job to help every child we encounter succeed by teaching them the necessary skills of thinking to survive and be productive in this technological age we live in.  Some helpful websites are Spelling City and Handwriting for Kids
