Swim in the Sea of Education

Hello! I am Kristi Kile and I want you to come and swim in the sea of education with me!  I am currently a junior at Valdosta State University. I have just begun my first professional semester as an Early Childhood Education major, which is in the Department of Early Childhood and Special Education.  After graduating I plan to continue my studies by furthering my degree with a master's in educational leadership.

I am from a small town outside of Atlanta, Georgia called Covington.  I loved growing up there.  I moved to Valdosta about four years ago when I started college.  I love the Valdosta area; it feels like home away from home!  Although I love it here, I do miss my family and friends back home.  I have been blessed with the most amazing family and friends anyone could ever ask for!

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors.  The beach is the most relaxing place for me to visit.  I love having my toes in the sand and hearing the waves crashing against the shoreline.  For the past couple of years, I have also enjoyed spending some of my free time volunteering for those who need help.  Recently I have participated in Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life and loved every minute of it.  Volunteering is truly an amazing gift that we can to give others!

I am so excited about becoming a teacher.  I enjoy seeing children's faces when they have learned or accomplished something new.  When I see the smiles from their faces, I can't help but to feel joy!  I know as a new teacher I am going to need many resources to guide me in becoming the successful teacher I want to be.  I have found that the Discovery Student and the Teachers Corner websites are exceptional resources for old and new teachers!
