Dive Into Learning!
Designed By Lauren Giles


Hi, my name is Lauren Giles. I am 21 years old and I am from Butler, Ga. I am a junior at Valdosta State University where I am currently working on a degree in Early Childhood Education. I love working with children and I have always wanted to be a teacher. I was very active in high school with sports and clubs. I loved cheerleading, softball, and track. In college I made the best decision ever by joining Phi Mu.I never really thought of myself as a sorority girl, but I have grown to love it. I have come to know and love each one of my sisters. We are all so different, but at the same time seem to fit together perfectly. Phi Mu has offered me so many different things. This year I have taken on a leadership role on our executive board. I love staying involved even if it takes a little hard work. Phi Mu is what I'm going to miss most about college. After graduation, I plan on staying at Valdosta State University and getting my masters in Early Childhood Education. When I get done with all of my school, I hope to get a job somewhere close to my family.





I have an older brother named Lee that also attends Valdosta State University. He is here working on his degree in biology and plans on attending pharmacy school after he graduates. My parents live in Butler, Georgia, and have been happily married for 26 years. My mother is an Early Childhood Teacher and my Father is a retired sherriff. I have always looked up to my mother, and I guess she is my main reason for wanting to be a teacher. I have had some great opportunities to travel to many different places with my family. My favorite place to go is the beach. I love laying out and going out on the boat to go fishing and diving. There are so many fish and things in the ocean that people would never imagine. Another place that I love to visit is New York City. It is a completely different world there.They have the best food and shopping ever! My family is planning on going this year for Christmas and I can't wait!
