"Take a Stroll Down Pooh's
by: Janie M. Stape
My name is Janie stape. I am a non-traditional student attending Valdosta State University.
I am in the process of fulfilling my
life's dream of becoming an elementary school teacher. I am currently
enrolled with the Early
Childhood and Reading Department. I have five children,
one of whom
still lives at home. Her name is Aimee and she is a sophomore in
high school. My husband's name is John and he has a PhD in
French. He is fluent in many languages, but teaches Spanish and
French at a local high school. I enjoy my family along with many
hobbies and interest.
We have traveled to Germany, my favorite place. We cruised down
River, ate wurst at the
Hofbrau House in Munich and shopped
for cuckoo clocks in the Black Forest. We have also visited
France. We toured the Louve, and took a quick trip up the Eiffel
Tower. We walked down the Champs Elysees. In 1998 we
had a family reunion in London, England. We took a day trip to
saw Big Ben, rode a double
decker bus and toured the Tower of London.
I am quite anxious to finish my degree so that I can have my very own
classroom filled with students that are ready to learn. I have
taught second grade in Cincinatti, Ohio at Calvary Christian
Academy for two years. I loved every minute of teaching. I
also taught pre-K at Little Wonders near Atlanta.
