Katie Mathis


     Hello!!  My name is Katie Mathis and I am currently attending Valdosta State University where I will major in  Early  Childhood and Reading Education.  I moved to Valdosta in June, moving from a small south Georgia town called Attapulgus, where I have lived all of my life.  In Indian terms, Attapulgus means "Land of the Dogwood".  It is famous for the Dogwood Festival that is held in March.

     Before enrolling at VSU I attended Bainbridge College where I will recieve my Associate of Arts Degree in May 2004. Bainbridge is a small town (larger than Attapulgus) that has one high school, two middle schools, and five elementary schools.  While attending Bainbridge College I had the opportunity to be a part of classes at John-Johnson Elementary, Hutto Middle and Bainbridge High School, where I graduated from in 2001.  After graduation I plan to move back home and work in the Decatur County School System

     In my spare time I like to go shopping, spend time with family and friends, or anything that does not require sitting still.  I love going to the beach, it is not far from my hometown so my friends and myself visit Mexico Beach quite often.   I have not been anywhere spectacular but one day I would like to.  One place I have always wanted to visit is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I would like to visit Myrtle Beach because I like the beach and one of my favorite movies, Shag, was filmed there.  Another place I would like to visit is the Virgin Islands.  However, my interest  in travel is not just at hot beaches, I would also like to go to Aspen, Colorado and ski in the snow.  I love being active and staying busy.

       I love lady bugs and other types of bugs also.  My nickname growing up was                 "Katie Bug"!
