Leap Into Learning with Lori
Designed by Lori Shirah


Hi! My name is Lori Shirah, and I am a junior at Valdosta State University. I am currently seeking my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Reading Education. I hope to graduate from VSU in December of 2005. I hope to one day teach a pre-k or kindergarten class.

I am from Ashburn, Georgia, and I graduated from Turner County High School. I am married with three children. Their names are Courtney, Casey, and Katelyn. Courtney is nine, Casey is three, and Katelyn is 20 months. My husband's name is Michael, and he is a huge fan of the Georgia Bulldogs.  I love spending time with my children. I hope when Katelyn gets a little older, to take my children to Disney World. I know they'll love it!

I attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College for two years and majored in Business Administration. Then I transferred to Valdosta State University and majored in Accounting. I finally decided that I didn't want to become a CPA like I had originally thought. I finally decided that I would like to be a teacher. I love working with children and being a teacher would allow my schedule to be like my children's. This would allow us to spend more time together.
