name is Jocelyn
Kelley, and ever
since my freshman year I have gone by my last name, Kelley. Now that I
into my professional field, my first name Jocelyn, seems much more
appropriate. I am
from the small town of Villa Rica, GA. Being that everybody knows
everybody there, I am extremely talkative and friendly. I am a Junior
at Valdosta State University
and am enrolled into the Early
Childhood and Special Education Department.
My major is Early Childhood Education with aspirations of being a
second or third grade teacher. My plan is to minor in psychology and to
someday get my Doctorate in Education Leadership. I have great
educational ideas and cannot wait to share them with, as well as learn

am a Resident Assistant at Centennial Hall,
which are on campus, upper-classmen apartments. I truly love my job!

There are plenty of books and magazines and other people that are
willing to share their knowledge. I have visited various web sites and
found PBS Teachers very helpful when it comes to
television programs that are suitable for all different topics.
helpful website is The Learning
Page. This site does wonders when it comes to mastering or getting
ideas for worksheets, workbooks or lesson plans.
