    My name is Julie Haddock. Currently, I am enrolled in the Early Childhood Reading Education Program as Junior at Valdosta State University, Valdosta, Ga.   In 1995, I graduated from Lowndes High School, and attended Valdosta Technical College where I received my degree in Marketing and Childcare Development. In 1999, I applied for admission at Abraham Baldwin College and completed my core credits. I transferred to VSU in 2001. I anticipate to graduate with my Bachelor of Ed. in December 2005. I love children and am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead of me. I would like to teach  Kindergarten or Second Grade in the Lowndes County School System.  Please check out my electronic portfolio which includes my educational concepts.

    I was born in Ft. Benign, GA. My father was transferred to Germany and my mother, brother Aaron, and I moved back to Clyattville, GA (Valdosta suburbs).  After my father's tour to Germany, he got out of the Army, and we settled in Clyattville. Halloween of 1981, a new addition was added to the family, my sister Rebecca. As a child we had many family adventures including visiting Smokemont Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains, Cherokee, NC or we traveled to Mexico Beach, FL.  During our travels to North Carolina, we found a new retreat to Vogel State Park, Blairsville, GA. We also visited family in Golden, Colorado and St. Louis, Missouri.  My favorite retreat spot is the beach. Each year a group of friends set out for Jacksonville Beach, FL for the weekend.  I would love to take a cruise to the Bahamas or fly to Hawaii for a week of luxury. During my free time, I like to watch movies, go bowling, eat at my favorite restaurant, Texas Roadhouse, shop, surf the web or just relax by the side of a pool or in a lounge chair a
t the beach.

I learned one key element in band: HUSTLE (Honor, Unity, Superior, Teamwork, Leadership, Effort). I believe this key element will make me an effective teacher. Beyond the classroom, I am active with my church - Clyattville United Methodist. I am a co-youth director, and I teach third through fifth grade in Sunday School. I keep my kids active with hands on lessons. We have used paints to express our understanding of the "10 Commandments." I have also coordinated and designed Vacation Bible School for my church. I volunteer with the Big Brother Big Sister foundation of Valdosta.
