Welcome to Kena Yarbrough's

    Hi everyone!  I am from Omega, Georgia.  I am a junior at Valdosta State University.  I am majoring in Early Childhood Education.  I chose to major in education because teachers have the power to change lives.  I want to be able to make a difference in someone's life.  I strive to be the best educator that I can be.  I attended Araham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia, before transferring to VSU.
ABAC in Tifton, Georgia
    There have been many teachers that have influenced my decision to become a teacher.  The largest influence in my decision was my college professor of introduction to education.  I went into that course still undecided and coming out of that course I knew I had found my place.  She always told us stories or read quotes and no matter what it was, she turned it into a life lesson.  She was understanding, intelligent, and most of all human.  She knew that people make mistakes and that teachers make mistakes.  She never wanted us to be perfect; she only wanted us to be ourselves.
    In the future I hope to have been a positive influence on all of my students.  I hope to have made  a difference in the lives of young people.  I hope to instill self-worth and pride in every student that walks through my door.  I hope to let everyone of my students know that they are special and that they are loved.  Today's children come from all kinds of backgrounds, including many with no stability in their lives.  I hope that I am able to give them the stability, strength, and the hope that they need; at least for the few hours that they will share their lives with me each day.
