Dive into Learning Lagoon!

A beautiful beach on the coast of the British Virgin Islands

Hi! My name is Jamie Yates and I'm a 20-year-old junior at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.  My major is Early Childhood Education in the Early Childhood & Special Education Department.

When I'm not in class, I spend most of my time at the Baptist Collegiate Ministries on campus.  I also enjoy shopping and going to the beach or to pool with my friends.  This summer, I spent a week at St. George Island, one of my favorite beaches. I try to make the most out of my free time since it is usually scarce!

I am really looking forward to becoming a teacher and being able to make a positive impact on my students' lives day after day. It's important for teachers to stay up to date with Georgia's Performance Standards.  Other valuable teaching resources may be found on the U.S. Department of Education's homepage.
